Stories of New Beginnings, Beyond Old EndingseBook - 2012
"Granddad's Farmhouse Porch Stories expand nine classic stories out of civilization's faith narratives from yesterday into identity guidelines for the greatest age the human family has ever known. Because Granddad's stories align with the progression of knowledge in science and technology, especially brain science and positive psychology, they help us to make the most of our new age of learning. But the most important keys to our new pathway to tomorrow are ten power words that define the better side of our humanity. The Big Ten power words include the personal qualities of KINDNESS and CARING, HONESTY and RESPECT. They include the relationship qualities of COLLABORATION and TOLERANCE, FAIRNESS and INTEGRITY. They lead to the summit qualities of DIPLOMACY and NOBILITY. These power words define us as the Big Ten Generation. Granddad's stories look at both sides of the human story the look back and the look forward. Those who make the future more important than the past and choose the Big Ten power words as markers for their identity narrative, will develop the positive strengths of their personality and have greater insight for success. Granddad's stories are serious fiction and define a positive future for our age of unparalleled possibilities, where it is more important than ever to learn how to update identity in sync with the world family's growing knowledge base. Granddad's Farmhouse Porch Stories deserve a high priority for every reader seeking to turn old endings into new beginnings and make the most of our time in history and place in the story."-- Provided by publisher.
