S. L. Willharm Author- NO PART OF THEIR WORLD


      by S. L. Wilharm 

      It’s the stuff of nightmares- being trapped, in danger, stripped of dignity.  Add to that a religion that justifies such treatment and a family ready to reject anyone who protests and it is no longer a nightmare: it is Sarah Garcia’s reality. 

      The novel is inspired by the true-life story of a young woman raised in the Jehovah’s Witness religion.  Follow Sarah’s remarkable journey of abuse, loss, love and renewal. 

      Author S. L. Wilharm and her husband live with their growing family in Benson, Arizona.  She welcomes feedback and questions.  She can be contacted at

      You can also find S. L. Wilharm weekly as co-host of Keeping It Real.  This radio show was created to provide a resource to people who have questions regarding religious cults and recovery to those getting out of them.  Tune in Wednesdays at 5 p.m./ eastern time at or be a call in listerner at 1-347-945-7601

      Judy Stong is pleased to announce the January publication of her second book, A CHILD’S GRIEF: SURVIVING THE DEATH OF A PARENT.  Judy began this book in response to the trauma her family experienced when her first hustand died.  She saw first hand how their father’s death affected her children then, and how it contines to impact their lives today.  Helping a grieving child can be difficult because children cannot always articulate what they feel, and adults are often very deep in grief themselves. 

      Personal interviews with survivors attest to the pain and turmoil of such children.  In addition, Judy gathered data from professional educators, theapists, and socialogists whose body of information bears witnes to the needs of grieving children.  Some facts to consider:

      On child in twenty will lo0se a parent by the time he or she is a senior in high school. 

      Children who had a parent who died suddenly have three times the risk of depression than those with living parents. 

      A CHILD’S GRIEF is a practical and insightful resource for parents, family members, teachers, or anyone helping our most important citizens cope with the grief of loss. 

      A CHILD’S GRIEF: SURVIVING THE DEATH OF A PARENT is published by Beaver’s Pond Press, Edina, MN.  To order visit   The book is also available on, or from Judy’s website

      by T. L Winetsky- 

      5-18-80  Remember This? 

      On May 18, 1980, the eruption of Mt. St. Helens caught the communities east of the Cascades unprepared for the ash fall that followed, transforming for many a bright spring day into a twenty-four hour night.  GREY PINE is the story of an inovative young science teacher’s struggle to survive amidst the chaos of the forces of nature and the inner workings of a troubled mind.
