    Popular! A Place to Grow
    Gina Weiss is the author of the article 'A Place to Grow' and believes sexual abuse of children is an issue in the collective consciousness of society, and it will remain so until enough healing has occurred to stem the tide of abuse. She suggests that as more survivors and perpetrators of abuse are healed, the overall level of denial in the collective consciousness will be reduced. Thereby paving the way for faster healing in the future such that at some point, there will be no more abuse.'sRoleEndingAbuse.pdf - 4-Mar-2005 - Hits: 1908 - Rate This | Details

    Anastasia and The Ghostly Owl (The Choice Was Hers!) Top Rated
    Please visit my new Website at and discover for yourself the new sequel to the Anastasia series. “Anastasia and The Ghostly Owl (The Choice Was Hers!)” are true stories about a young girl that is abandoned, abducted, and abused. These stories are autobiographical but do not say so; they are about abuse but do not explicitly provide the details. They are about hope, courage, determination, persistence, and perserverance. These stories follow Anastasia, an heroic child, on her journey towards becoming a mature woman. From start to finish, both The Original and The Sequel are written using rich metaphors and similes. To open theses boxed-shaped books will spring you into your journey of thinking outside the box because that is the way they are written. Each page and chapter encourages reading between the lines because it is written to stimulate free interpretation and self-evaluation, yet provides hope to everyone that boldly opens these books. The deadly culprits of Silence and Secrets present themselves. For example, silence allows the Owl to survive; however, for an abused child, silence is deadly. These books are educational as they present many survival techniques that Anastasia used on her journey to self-discovery, self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-worth. Child abuse is not restricted to any one particular segment of society, so I am contacting various groups and organizations with the intention of helping others who have suffered adversity. Adversity faces us all, and we all seek our own ways to help ourselves as well as others during demanding times of darkness that consciously or unwittingly swoop upon us. These are the only books of their kind which do not describe the horrific details of verbal, physical, and sexual abuse and are, therefore, suitable for all ages. My intention is to help each reader through their own journey towards self-healing. The choice is yours! Please visit my Website at and read excerpts from "Anastasia and the Ghostly Owl (The Choices Was Hers!)" to see what reviewers and customers are saying about my books. For a short period of time, if you purchase the orignal book, "Anastasia and The Ghostly Owl (The Choice Was Hers!)" from my Website, I will send you a FREE E-book of The Sequel (For a limited time only and while quantities last!).
