A life lived… Cancer survived

Author: Tebogo Malema

 

“Hardship, trial and pain are the best gauge of what one actually has inside oneself. Those are the things that beg for more than just muscle to fight off its challenges. The things, that digs deep inside of you for a solution. A solution that will be seen by all; but who can’t for a second feel an inch of the pain that you experience. Well, I have felt it. I have been down and out. Pushed to the edge, and in agony to my very core. Lost people, support, structure, money, health, strength and almost lost my mind, but nothing could have prepared me to be told by the doctor that I have less than 6 months to live!”

Tebogo Malema tells her story of survival against all odds five years after the doctors said she will die. This is a true story of survival and education about the rare cancer she has, and prejudice overcome by faith.

The best of South African Bonsai and a little history

Author: Willem Pretorius

(Size A4)

 

“The story of bonsai in South Africa is a fascinating one with colourful characters.

Not many bonsai countries can boast of trapeze artists, fighter pilots, a grower who established a bonsai-en on his bathroom roof and even a blind practitioner in their midst.

It is a rich heritage albeit poorly recorded and with lots of gaps that we can hopefully fill as the years pass. It is imperative that we do it as some of the characters are dying and without a record their tradition will mainly be transferred orally to next generations..”

Drie treë na die hemel
[btn text="Go to Facebook..." tcolor=#0000FF bcolor=#CDCDCD thovercolor=#FFF link="https://www.facebook.com/Drie-Tree-na-die-Hemel-744038712395181/?notif_t=page_admin" target="_blank"]

 

Lees Drie Treë na die Hemel en ontdek hoe God ‘n ongelukkige sameloop van omstandighede in ‘n boodskap verander, nie net vandag nie, maar elke dag.
“Die nagmerrie het begin: seksuele mishandeling, ‘n alkolistiese pa en ‘n disfunksionele familie. Hierdie boek is ‘n reis van pyn, wanhoop en verslawings wat tot die sirrose van die lewer lei en ‘n tydperk van slegs ses maande oor het om te leef. Een lawwe partytjie na die volgende wat altyd eindig tot die braking liters bloed, wat skynbaar genoeg is om in te verdrink, waarna Janine in die hospitaal in die intensiewe sorgeenheid opgeneem is. Daar was geen hoop om oorlewing indien sy in die diep, donker put val nie. In hierdie plek, ‘n verskriklike grot van vrees en pyn, het sy tot die besef gekom dat die dood nie ‘n verlossing is nie, maar eerder die oorsprong tot die ewige hel; ‘n ewige gevangenis, een waaruit wat jy kan nooit ontsnap nie en vir ewig vasgevang is.”
Drie treë na die hemel is Janine Haun se eerste boek, ‘n biografie van haar stryd om die trauma en pyn van seksueel mishandeling vanaf ‘n jong ouderdom te oorwin. Na haar pynlike reis het sy uiteindelik ‘n plek van vrede en beslissing gevind en besef dat wonderwerke nog gebeur.
Janine is ‘n gekwalifiseerde onderwyseres en sielkundige berader. Sy het in beide Engeland en Duitsland klas gegee, maar dit prys gegee om aan haar loopbaan en eerste liefde, berading, te werk. Sy help die gebrokes deur middel van kragtige geskrifte soos dié wat haar lewe gered het. Sy woon tans in haar geboorteland, Suid-Afrika, saam met haar man Elmar Haun. Sy het ‘n  seun wat in Duitsland groot geword het en steeds daar woon. Haar ma en mede-skrywer, May Saunders, is op 19 Julie 2015 oorlede.
Janine vervul haar visie van die verkondiging van die Evangelie deur haar ongelooflike getuienis by elke moontlike geleentheid te verkondig.

Three Steps To Heaven

Author: Janine Haun

 

Read how Janine took “Three steps to heaven” to discover that God can turn a mess into a message, today and every day.
“Nightmarish beginnings; sexual abuse, an alcoholic father and a dysfunctional family. A journey of pain, despair and addictions which leads up to cirrhosis of the liver with only six months left to live ensues. One more crazy party leads vomiting litres of blood, seemingly enough to drown in, and Janine is taken up in the intensive care unit. There is no hope of survival left as she falls down into a deep, dark pit of terror. Entering this place, a terrible cave of fear, pain and terror, she comes to realise that death is not a release, but rather a descent to eternal hell. An everlasting prison with dark, slimy walls alive with black creatures, spiders and petrifying evil. One from which you can never escape; forever chained and trapped there.”
This is Janine Haun’s first book, a biography of her struggle to overcome the trauma and pain of being sexually abused at a very young age. After her painful journey, she finally finds a place of peace and resolution and realises that miracles do happen.
Janine is a licenced teacher and psychological counsellor. She has taught in both England and Germany, but is now building a career pursuing her first love; counselling the broken-hearted with the help of powerful scriptures like the ones which saved her life.
