Oct 3rd Prevention
Unveiling the sinister connection between serial killers and Satan, my book offers insights to prevent all forms of evil and abuse through the spiritual armor of God.
Ivette Lee is a Published Author. She is a Special Needs Advocate, Consultant, and mother of two children.
Ms. Lee has a degree in teaching and training in marriage and family therapy counseling from Fresno State University. Ms. Lee has a passion for human behavior and seeks to help others have a positive outlook, no matter their struggle.
Her first published work on serial crime precedes decades of research in the life of serial killers. Ms. Lee has been corresponding and analyzing the serial killer's mind and acts of crime to find the answer we have all asked: are serial killers born or bred?
The Satan Model: Exposing the Link Between Serial Killers and Satan explains this long over-due cause of evil. In 2020, Ms. Lee received recognition as one of the top ten finalists of the Author Academy Awards (AAE) for her literary merit and publishing excellence. Ms. Lee has plans to venture into different genres and will be writing and completing the second edition of The Satan Model in 2024.
Domestic Violence Prevention
1. Educate yourself
2. Trust your instincts
3. Develop healthy boundaries and Remember putting on the armor of God also involves seeking spiritual guidance and relying on your faith to guide you in making wise decisions and discerning the truth.
Three immediate steps you can take are: Reflect and evaluate, Seek Support, and take action (rather than be acted upon).

Listen to understand, Let go of timelines (healing is on it's own timeline), Shed the labels
"Unleashing Resilience-Finding the skills, courage, and strength to take flight with broken wings."
1. Most Important-Find a support person that you can rely on.

Broken no More!!! As a Domestic Violence Educator, my goal is to reach and teach women about how to be aware of the signs of domestic violence.
1. Be able to recognize red flags,
2. Know what steps to take to avoid,
3. Have resources to call for help.
My book will tell you some of the red flags I saw in my marriage that I ignored. It will also help you see that you can save yourself some heartache and pain when you follow your gut or instinct. I want the book to help many young women get into relationships to avoid going down a road of pain and heartache.

"From Surviving to Thriving: A Story of Courage and Resilience in the Face of Domestic Abuse."

3) I began a process of healing body, mind, and spirit.
1) Know you don't have to go through this alone. Talk to a trusted friend/relative/or licensed professional.
2) Distance yourself from those that are toxic in your life.
3) Start keeping track of where you are wasting your time so you can stop procrastinating on a new hobby, self-care, or fitness so you can begin taking actionable steps to begin a new habit. (Social media, Streaming, Gaming, etc...)

Protect your child from Predatory Internet Grooming.
Only 15% of parents know what their child is doing online. (Slow this down, let it land) I am John-Michael Lander, a former Olympic diving contender and sexual abuse survivor.
I was groomed by the adults entrusted with my training. I know shame, guilt, and fear to report. Since my experience, online grooming has become an epidemic. So, I have devised Predatory Internet Grooming, or PIG, so parents and children can comprehend the issues of this online crisis. Over 500,000 predators attempt to contact children, ages 12-17, daily through the internet. These predators use AI and GROOMING to establish an online relationship with a child and sways that child to share explicit photos and videos.
Reports show that males are easier to connect with, manipulate, and blackmail, and predators are banking on males not to report. 3 Simple Things Parents can do to protect their children from PIG
1. Talk with your child about PIG
2. Ask your child if they visit and participate in online games, chatrooms, or other social media.
3. Limit the time your child spends online. Help protect your child against PIG, it is not the child’s fault.

The Road Less Traveled: A Story of Love, Pain, and Everything In Between.
Love has already won! The Light shone on the darkness, and the darkness could not overcome it.
Step 1: Acknowledge the abuse was not your fault and you are not responsible for the abuser.
Step 2: Let go of the need to control other's perceptions of your life and decisions.
Step 3: Tell your story. The Light shines into the darkness when we speak truth about evil.
The Road Less Traveled
April T Giauque
Trapped. I was in Domestic Violence for 9.5 with no hope of getting out—the abyss.
The abyss of abuse is different for everyone, but the one thing in common is the deep, dark inky mess. There is no hope but for a pinpoint of light.
Now, who brought that light to you? Where did it come from?
Are you going to follow it?
It was lit for you...by your ultimate supporter. I had family, a first responder, and a complete stranger who became the pinpoints in my life.
How many of you have watched friends, family, or co-workers countless times in abusive relationships and not know what to do? You, too, can shine that light and help.
Be pinpoint! Become the Ultimate Supporter!
