Product Description

Product Description

A social worker from New England...a Texas airline pilot...a homemaker
from California...a lawyer who has lived everywhere...a quilter in Oregon. What
do they have in common? All are on the adventure of their lives.

Like many
others among the 77 million baby boomers, these men and women don't want to retire
from contributing when they retire from their careers. So they are using their
time, skills, and resources to make a difference. Written in conjunction with Finishers
Project, an umbrella organization that encompasses more than 100 mission organizations,
this book will help baby boomers discover a second-half adventure that fits them
and counts for eternity.

More About the Author

I am a writer and speaker who loves learning about the world. And what better way to learn than to travel? My dear husband puts up with me... even accompanies me on occasion.

Of course, the more I learn, the more I want to write. And then I want to jump up on my soapbox and share all my insights and ideas.

For years I've been known as a writer of non-fiction. That's still true, but I am also having the time of my life writing fiction. Sometimes there is no better way to share a passion than through a rollicking good story! I just finished writing one historical trilogy, "Grace in Africa," (Book 1: The Call of Zulina, Book 2: The Voyage of Promise, Book 3: The Triumph of Grace). Now I'm working on the next series, "Blessings in India." What fun! It's like eating my chocolate dessert when I haven't finished my broccoli!

Come, explore the world with me. Together we'll strive to make it a better place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Resource for starting on your own 'Second-Half Adventure'! 24 Jan 2010
By Marta - Published on
I loved this book! I've been really searching for what I'm to do with my time and energy since I am back at home and this book gave me some excellent ideas! Many of you know that I've been in the nursing home for the past two years and have recently moved back out into the world, after some life changing events. I've been struggling to not just fill my time, but to fill my time with something of substance.

This book was an eye opener as to how many opportunities there are for those who are entering the 'second-half' of our lives. While the book is definitely written from a Christian perspective, there are any number of activities that would appeal to anyone looking for a way to go out and change the world even in a small way. I've already gone to The Finishers Project and filled out the questionair and I encourage all of you to do the same. We all have skills and passions that could be put to use in ways we can't imagine!

Please consider this book as a gift to everyone you know that is approaching that 'second-half' of their life...and even those who have been in it for a time. It would also make a wonderful addition to the library of every Pastor, both for himself and to aid in counseling others.

This is a great resource for planning your 'second-half adventure'!

A Solution Waiting To Happen
The Gift Of Maturity

Using true life examples, the author shows how you can live a full, wonderful second half of your life.

This book is for anyone who is wondering what to do with the second half of their life. It's full of great ideas of how you can make not only your life more meaningful, but how to also enrich the lives of others.
