America We Have a Problem - Our Society is disintegrating: God is missing from the public square, the is family under assault, abortion on demand, homosexual marriage, marriage numbers declining, offensive language, church attendance down, teen-age preganancies, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), pornography, drug use epidemic, mass shootings, black-on-black killings, poverty, national debt and more.
Does it ever seem to you like in some of the more important areas of our lives we pretend there are no rules? The theme of this book is that life is a lot harder than it has to be and certainly a lot harder than it is intended to be because we disregard the rules, the Natural Laws, that tell us how to behave and how to live with Joy and Peace, both with ourselves and others. In our society – in our culture, we have rules for almost every activity in our lives, with more rules being put into place seemingly every day. Rules about which side of the road to drive on, who can drive, laws requiring us to wear seatbelts, even laws and regulations about what we can eat and drink. Rules and regulations are in effect which dictate where we live (zoning laws), the manner and materials, we use in building our homes and businesses (building codes), whether or not to buy, sell, or rent property (local ordinances). In addition to laws and regulations, our employers have policies that address on the job standards, behavior and dress. We are a nation of laws and rules. It would be impossible for our society to function without laws and rules to govern our behavior and conduct; how we treat each other and how we conduct business and our personal affairs.
So then, why is it that in some of the most important areas of our personal lives many of us ignore basic rules for living? For the purpose of this book, I am talking about rules for how we behave and interact with other people, rules regarding families, marriage, sex and even our personal finances - these rules are called Natural Laws and have existed forever.
It may be that these Natural Laws are new to you; that the concept of universal, naturally occurring rules regulating our behavior and conduct has never made it to your radar screen. If that is the case, I ask you to consider the concept of Natural Laws. Most people will be familiar with the ideas we will discuss. If this whole discussion is unfamiliar to you, please determine to give it serious thought. You can Find Joy and Peace with Natural Laws.
About the Author
Hi. I am Tom and my wife and I live in the St. Louis, Missouri area. We grew up here and moved back a couple of years ago from Florida and Alabama. We have children and grand-children in Florida, Alabama and Chicago. For most of my adult life I have served in the U.S. military, both in the Air Force and the Navy. Most recently, I have worked as an accountant. I am now retired. I've been working on the book, "The Truth About Money: How to Find Joy and Peace" for quite a while and finally have it just about ready for you to enjoy and, hopefully, find helpful. Please feel free to review the book or get in touch with me at the website and let me know what you think of it. This book is being followed up by two others: "The Truth About Natural Laws" and "The Truth About God". These are both intended to be published in 2016 and I will, of course, welcome your thoughts and feedback about them. Well, like I said, I hope you enjoy the books and I look forward to your feedback and thoughts. Thank You Tom Maloney
Hello! I am T. C. Maloney. My wife and I live near St. Louis, Missouri. We grew up in the area and went to high school together. We moved back a few years ago to be closer to family. We have previously lived in Chicago, the Norfolk, Virginia area, Gainesville, Florida and Gulf Shores, Alabama. We have children and grand-children in Florida, Chicago and here in St. Louis. For most of my adult life I have served in the U.S. military, both in the Air Force and the Navy, which partially accounts for the many places we have lived. I ended my working career as an accountant. I am now retired. The “Truth About Money: How to Find Joy and Peace" was originally published on Smashwords in 2015 and was followed by two more books; “The Truth About Natural Laws: How to Find Joy and Peace” and “The Truth About God: How to Find Joy and Peace.” Together these three make up a series entitled The Truth Trilogy. Currently I am working on the Second Editions for all three books. “The Truth About Money” Second Edition will be published in January 2020 followed by the other two books - it is my intention to have all three Second Editions published in 2020. Way back in 2005, while taking care of my one year old grandson, I felt the call to write a book on personal finances. It took ten years to get that first book researched, written and published. The next two went much faster and both of them were published by mid-2017. All three books have a similar theme: we make life much more difficult than necessary because we disregard how life is meant to be lived. Take money, for example: almost everyone would agree that we need to live within our means, yet many of us do not and problems develop, sometimes very serious problems. “The Truth About Money” is the first of The Truth Trilogy precisely because everyone has at least some familiarity with money. I would greatly appreciate your review of any or all of the books. Please feel free to review the book or get in touch with me at the website and let me know what you think of it. It is my hope you enjoy the books and I look forward to your feedback and thoughts. Thank You. T. C. Maloney
