My Redemption Road: From Devastation To A Dream

by Mary C Thielen

This book is a very short version of my life. It contains some snapshots to help the reader get to know me a bit. My reason for writing the book is to bring hope and encouragement to all who have experienced domestic abuse. Whether you are currently in an abusive situation or have come out of abuse; I want you to know that you can make decisions that will bring fulfillment and peace to your life. I also wanted to share my dream of redemption for others. So I started a nonprofit organization to provide housing, programs, supportive services and more for my community and beyond. Unfortunately domestic violence is a serious problem worldwide. We are dedicated to being a part of the solution. My joy in life now comes from encouraging and positively impacting those who have walked in the same footsteps of pain, rejection, trauma and shame associated with domestic abuse. I sincerely want to help others turn their lives from devastation to a dream.

Interwoven with her rice-planting masters in the South Carolina colony, her legend of survival begins a two-century legacy of lineage and hope that follows her family from the slave-breeding plantations of Georgia through the frontiers of northern Louisiana and into the harsh coastal flatlands of the fledgling Republic of Texas.

    Was Shake-speare Gay?: (Not that there would have been anything wrong with that.)

    by Gilbert Wesley Purdy

    For over 200 years scholars and readers have sought for answers. Who was “Mr. W.H.”? What was his relationship to England’s greatest playwright William Shake-speare? Why do Shake-speare’s sonnets seem to portray a same-sex amour? Had they been lovers?

    Each generation has tried to find an answer that fit the mores of its times. In each instance, those “answers” have succeeded at nothing but comforting readers that all evidence regarding this towering figure in the literary landscape could not possibly offend their biases. Shake-speare’s sonnets, they are assured, portray whatever sexuality will satisfy them. If they are shocked by gay poetry, then he was clearly straight. If they seek out gay exemplars from cultural history, he was clearly gay. If the reader wishes not to be bombarded by yet another source of sexual content, clearly the sonnets portray no sexual information about the poet at all.

    But there are actually answers based upon fact rather than desire. If you want to know, those answers are in these pages. For the first time, analysis of verifiable facts has been brought to bear.
