for persons seeking assistance and direction with difficult decisions in life involving

Bonnie Kaufmann, former legal assistant to Stephen Kaufmann with the law office
A Better Choice Elder Law, Retirement and Estate Planning Center. Former President
of Heritage Planning Group, Also an Asset protection  - Financial consultant. Together
they write nd provide Legal and Financial education for "LIFE" - Legal, Insurance,
Financial and Estate Planning.

She is mostly known for her public service work on a regular basis with education
 programs through The A Better Choice Foundation, The Estate Planning Institute and the
law firm ABC LAW. She researches and addresses issues that effect peoples personal privacy,
liberties, health care, legal-financial, retirement, financial and long term care matters. She is the
host of the radio program The Law and Your Money which is aired on the web site abclaw.com
and other various radio programs throughout the US upon request.

Her background includes being the only daughter raised in a home of carpenters in the
metropolitan DC area. There she grew up in the late 60's and early 70's while going to
school as a minority caucasian during the troubled times due to segregation
battles and drugs in the schools.

During that time she maintained her status of leadership and respect among her
peers as a sports team captain. She was chosen and trained at Maryland University and
became the first professionally trained peer conflict and drug counselor for the State's pilot
school drug prevention program as a high school student for her peers.

She later married and soon after became a single parent in the early 1970's. She also
had the misfortune of becoming disabled by an accident. During a 5 year recovery, she
started a cleaning business out of her hospital bed that quickly grew into a residential
construction company, then grew to become a commercial construction and consulting
company. She was noted in news articles as being one of  it not the first woman hands on
general contractor to own and operate her own construction business in the Washington
Metropolitan Area in the 70's and in VA in the 80's

For health reasons in the mid 1980's , she moved to Luray VA to continue to raise her 2
sons as she free lanced as a construction consultant and builder.  She went back to
school full time to learn computer technology and communications and started steps to
change her career while teaching art lessons to elementary school students that
otherwise would not have had an art program.

During that time she was contracted by a local county school system to help administrate
federal programs for the troubled children and their parents and to administrate the grant
funds for Warren County school system in VA. Soon after she was requested to help spear
head and develop the Job Training Partnership Act program for that county. Her duties included
teaching GED, Job placement Counseling, Overseeing Summer Youth Programs and working
with many local and state governmental agencies, businesses, schools, single parents and
 juvenile agencies dealing with troubled youth. She became very well known in that community
in the 1980's as a role model for women. During this time she also built ab apartment complex -
 overseeing the construction for low income housing for disadvantaged persons.

It soon became her goal in life to reach and implement programs to help persons that have
difficulties in life to over come and grow into responsible self sufficient citizens. She is
committed to helping people make better informed and educated decisions younger in life
rather than un-responsible crisis reaction decisions that usually become bad decisions in life.

This desire also soon developed into a deep interest and involvement of Legal, Insurance,
Financial and estate planning practices and services for the middle income families.
It became her mission to help people understand the importance of making Better Choices
involving insurance, financial and legal decisions young in life or as soon as possible.
She has since concentrated on educating people about all the various aspects of "LIFE
Planning" legal-financial, insurance, retirement and long term care and important estate
planning matters that effect a persons destiny in life.

She met Stephen J. Kaufmann in 1994 and soon after married. They live in Luray, VA and
together have 5 sons ranging 19 and 32. Three grand children.

Together they have established The Estate Planning Institute. They write educational programs,
and professional courses together for lay persons and professionals. They are also the founders
of the CEPP professional designation program, Chartered Estate Planning Practitioner self study
program for social service workers, attorneys, bankers, life and health and property casualty agents,
financial advisors and other professionals that advise persons on a daily basis on financial, health
care, insurance and/or legal matters.

Later Bonnie Kaufmann established the LIFE Planners Advocate Training Program for
persons seeking to become an advocate to seniors and help to reduce and avoid
Elder Abuse - especially subtle financial elder abuse that is one of the most rampant
growing ways elders are abused today.

The ABC Learning Park - Bonnie Kaufmann Founder with her husband has since
dedicated her knowledge to helping people understand the importance of knowing
how to manage their personal matters and taking care of business - taking charge of
their lives early and planning for their goals in life as soon as they can for a successful
and happy life today and most especially for their later years in LIFE.

As of December 2004 ABC Inc. has put her corporate responsibilities and the running of all her businesses in the hands of Stephen Kaufmann.

This web site is donated to A Better Choice Foundation. 

Since December of 2004 Bonnie Kaufmann has had to face limitations that requires her to focus more on her other strengths with animals and people she can spend time with and share her knowledge without demands with stress - and responsibilities with people that do not appreciate her talents.

She is focusing her time with young persons with the assistance of others that can help train young people how to become more self suffecient in all aspects of life - including knowing how to provide for their families in many ways including building a house, a home and a quality of life that brings a peaceful and proud lifestyle, by helping them make better choices in life and get back to basics in life.

We welcome your prayers!
