An uncle who went too far. A mother who didn't care. A little girl who waited for justice.

In this powerful and honest memoir, Laurie Matthew takes the reader with her as she revisits her childhood in 1950s and 1960s Dundee. Raised in a home which consisted of an emotionally neglectful and physically violent mother, a distant father, a chronically sick brother and a sister she needed to protect, the only ray of light in little Laurie's life came from the man who would return home from the Army with pockets full of sweets and bags of toys. Uncle Andrew would shower her with attention and love, capture the hearts of everyone around him - and carefully groom her for years of abuse by not only himself, but also by a network of paedophiles. Laurie tells a harrowing story of isolation, as her abusers went to extraordinary lengths to carry out their sick acts, wearing masks to confuse and torment her and keeping her away from other children. But these evil men had no idea that the girl they systematically violated would turn into one of the country's leading child protection experts, and that their legacy would give her the impetus to change the lives of so many innocent victims.

A $70 billion industry hinges on two terrified people investing their lives into answering four simple words: Will You Marry Me? Once the catalyst begins, however, their relationship becomes an afterthought to the thousands of decisions made planning the wedding. There are more than 2 million weddings each year in the United States. Wedding magazines reach circulations in the hundreds of thousands, and wedding guides, tips and how-to books line the shelves of bookstores to tell couples how to plan the best wedding. But what about planning for the marriage? What happens to the relationship before a couple says their vows? "Groomed" is a story not just about wedding planning, but the relationship of an engaged couple from proposal to vows, all told from a groom's perspective. It's 14 months of flower arrangements and guest list bloopers, and a humorous commentary that anyone who's ever been a part of the wedding process can relate to. A couple in limbo for more than a year, a family adjusting to new members, friends watching their relationships change as a wedding nears. Getting down on one knee is merely the beginning.

Texas horsewoman Robin Vaughan is surprised to find herself flat on the sidewalk the first time she leaves her hotel. More surprising is the young woman who picks her up. In her black fishnet stockings, Flora looks more like a hooker than someone who gets up at five A.M. to feed the horses at an uptown riding stable. She may in fact be a hooker, for when Jeet, Robin's nervous husband, calls Claremont Riding Academy to confirm her identity, nobody there has heard of her. But is the staff at Claremont as sinister as Flora claims? Or is trustful Robin being set up for a deadly fall? There's only one way to make sure, and Robin takes a ride on the wild side of the West Side that culminates in glory...but not before murder is done...

It is estimated that 1 in every 6 boys will experience a sexual encounter with an adult at some point in their lives before they reach the age of consent. In this day and age, many adults find this topic unsettling and will often circumvent the issue even if they remotely suspect that some form of abuse may be occurring. Parents, regardless of intent, have a tendency to blame the victim, which further perpetuate feelings of guilt and shame in the child. They don’t know what questions to ask, and if they do, they may not believe the answer no matter how honest the child is capable of being at that moment. Groomed tells the story of abuse and how it changed the trajectory of who the author would have been. The story is told from the perspective of a thirteen-year-old victim and a fifty-five-year-old survivor.

There are many things that can be written and said concerning the nature of God, but among the most mysterious aspects of His being is His glory—His manifested presence. When you have a revelation and an understanding of the manifested presence of God—His glory—you will grasp all the other aspects of God so much better. We will never be able to completely understand or explain the full meaning of the glory of God. It is beyond description and too marvelous for mere words. In fact, the glory of God is not something to be understood or explained but rather something to be displayed. We need to be changed by the glory of God, and then we need to reflect it to the world. God is more excited to let His glory fill the earth than we are to spend time in His presence—the realm of His glory. Allow Pastor De Wet Steyn to give you the keys so you can open the door to a personal encounter with the glory of God, so that it might be brought forth and released on earth.

It's late on Friday night when Casey's mobile starts to ring. She is expecting it to be her daughter Riley. But it isn't Riley. It's a woman from the Emergency Duty Team. So begins Casey and Mike's latest fostering challenge - a fifteen-year-old girl called Keeley who's run away from her long-term foster home 25 miles away. The Jonathan Ross Show has just started when Casey gets the call. She thinks it will be Riley - telling her that her favourite actor is going to be on TV. But it's something far more urgent: a fifteen-year-old girl who has run away from her foster family and accused her foster father of sexual abuse. The family deny in vehemently, but such an allegation can never be taken lightly, so a new home must be found for Keeley. Keeley is polite, but she's sharp, and she has all the hallmarks of a child who has been in the system a long time, and knows how to play it. Whether the allegation is true or not, Casey knows there will be no winners here. If it is true, then a young girl's life has been torn asunder. If not, then the heartache for the family will only be surpassed by the bleak outlook for Keeley. In the short term, it's a case of providing a safe, supportive home for a vulnerable child. But with the dangerous world of the internet at her disposal, it seems this strong-minded youngster has her own ideas of where that safe place should be...
