Verby Omdraai

Skrywer: Christiaan J Blignaut

 

Verby Omdraai is die avontuur van twee broers en hul pad tot rekonsiliasie met hulself, met mekaar en met God.

Ross en Albert Naudé worstel met innerlike demone van liefde en verlies, opgee en geloof. Die een sit in Londen na hy geen ander keuse gehad het as om te vlug nie. Daar waar hy met bloedbelope oë oor sy lewe nadink, bereik hy ‘n punt van geen omdraai. Die ander een is ‘n modelstudent op Stellenbosch, ‘n sterk en suksesvolle jong man. Al is die tweelingbroers met duisende kilometers van mekaar geskei, is hulle nou, meer as ooit tevore, van mekaar afhanklik.

Die donker wolke pak saam en die sneeu is aan die kom. Elkeen het sy eie berg om te klim, en om lewend aan die anderkant uit te kom, gaan niks minder as ‘n wonderwerk kos nie. Ross en Albert gaan nog ‘n hele paar ou wonde moet oopkrap voor hulle rus kan vind.

Through the Valley

Author: Birgitta Nell

 

F. Scott Fitzgerald is claimed to have once said, “In the real dark night of the soul it is always three o’clock in the morning.” (Fitzgerald. 1945).

To those many people who have never suffered from a major depression, this dark and hopeless statement may seem like an unrealistic exaggeration.
How can a person be so morbid? Can’t they just look on the bright side? After all, happiness is a choice, isn’t it Just take a walk have a bubble bath, and you’ll be fine.
This advice might be helpful to person who is having a bad day, or even a bad week. But in suffocating space of the depressed person’s mind, there is no bright side. There is no choice, there is no other way.

The Ultimatum

Author: Frederik H Steyn

 

The choice of Sydney as the Olympic venue in 2000 would ultimately prove to be the correct one, but it was hardly without hitches. Very few people knew the malign coterie and their arms with which the Australian security forces had to grapple.

In The Ultimatum the reader get insight into the criminal activities of a rightwing in South Africa which in the end flows over to the Olympic games in Australia.

Will the Olympic Investigation Strike Force be able to fend off this criminal attempt?

The Good News is also for Gay People

Author: Rev. Robert H. Langford

 

Each person has given these talents and each one can specialise in their particular fields. Much like in a rugby team, where there is a clear indication of the position the person will play in the team, based in their build.

“My opinion can be such a destructive force because in all cases it will marginalise or exclude someone, at any time. The purpose of this writing is, in some small way, to show-up this thinking as a weakness predicted for the end time and to encourage Christians and churches, teachers and preachers to move away from focussing on sin to focussing on Jesus and His Covenant of grace.”

The only success against sin is Jesus and His Good News. To focus on what we are doing wrong is not the answer. The answer is to focus on what He did right.

Persoonlike Geldsake

Skrywer: Hein Swart

(Grootte: A4)

 

DIE doelwit van hierdie boek is om die basiese begrippe van persoonlike geldsake so eenvoudig moontlik aan die leek te verduidelik. Ingewikkelde formules, uitgebreide tabelle en omvattende grafieke is met opset vermy, want dit kan lesers net verwar en ontmoedig.

Die wêreld van finansies en geldsake kan vir die oningewyde soms intimiderend wees. Die terminologie wat soms in die sakesektor gebruik word, val dikwels vreemd op die leek se oor, ekonome praat bo-oor mense se koppe en finansiële raadgewers is dikwels nie in staat om ingewikkelde finansiële produkte op ‘n verstaanbare manier aan hul kliënte te verduidelik nie. Dit alles veroorsaak dat die gewone salaristrekker eenvoudig sy hande in die lug gooi en hulle dan op deskundiges verlaat om hul persoonlike geldsake namens hulle te behartig. Hierdie manier van doen is nie net duur nie, maar laat jou ook wawyd oop vir uitbuiting deur mense wat hul eie belange nastreef en nie ‘n duit vir jou as kliënt omgee nie.

Enige mens met ‘n gemiddelde intelligensie en ‘n bietjie gesonde verstand is in staat om self beheer oor sy persoonlike geldsake te neem. Hierdie boek dek nie net die hele spektrum van persoonlike geldsake nie, maar inkorporeer ook die nuutste finansiële ontwikkelinge en die jongste wetlike bepalinge. Dit sal jou nie oornag in ‘n miljoenêr verander nie. Om kitsrykdom  op ‘n eerbare, wettige manier te behaal, is ‘n mite. Net diewe, loterywenners en erfgename word gou ryk.

Wat hierdie gids egter wel vir jou kan bereik, is om jou in staat te stel om na ‘n leeftyd van harde werk en oordeelkundige beleggings jou senior jare te betree met ‘n hele paar miljoen rand op jou naam en een van net ses uit elke honderd mense te word wat eendag met finansiële gemoedsrus kan aftree.

Dit sal veral ook leerders help om die basies begrippe van persoonlike geldsake te verstaan.

Pain from a child’s heart

Author: Belinda Michelle Schwartz-Burger

 

Belinda tells us the tale of her life after her father’s death. Of abandonement, abuse and neglect. She tells us of the light brought to her by her stay in the children’s home and how it prepared her for the outside world, far better than being with a mother she loved, but couldn’t reach. She speaks of how society rejected her, merely because of where she felt safest. This is a cautionary tale to the world – to not judge a child by his or her parent’s failings.

No Daddy it hurts

Author: Charmaine Marè Mack

 

When you are a child; who do you trust the most to love you, protect you, guide you and teach you right from wrong?

The world is sadly full of sick and deceitful people whom harm children; parents and caregivers will educate themselves about child abuse and in turn educate children too. Children need to know from a young age what is right and what is wrong when interacting with an adult. They need to be empowered so that their childhood is not stolen from them.

Born into a family tortured by an alcoholic father the author’s life became fraught with more than just fear of his rages, she becomes the object of something more frightening – his depth of her despair as she attempts to repair the seams of her life. When she realises that her father was not her biological father her life changes again, with more adjustments to make and more repairs to make.

My Tieroog

Skrywer: Alta Geldenhuys

 

‘n Oorsese lugvaartmaatskappy slurp ‘n hoogs vaardige vlieënier op uit Suid-Afrika. Bernard Oelafsen vertrek met ‘n twee jaar kontrak met die verstande dat sy nooi hom sal volg sodra hy vir haar verblyf kan reël.

Hy skryf die eerste aand vir haar waarin hy wonder of die loopbaan hul skeiding werd is. Na drie weke waarin hy angstig op ‘n antwoord wag, bel hy sy ma; hulle is immers bure! Van haar moet hy verneem dat sy geen idee het waar Heike haar bevind nie. Iets is vir hom uiters ongerymd. Hy kan glad nie verklaar waarom sy nooi nie reageer nie. Hy hou aanskryf, sonder terugvoer.

Hierna gooi hy hom kniediep in sy loopbaan aangesien niks hom meer tuis trek nie, salig onbewus van die drama wat plaaslik afspeel.

Die poppe begin egter dans toe hy na 5 jaar besluit om te kom uitvind wat van Heike geword het.
