John-Michael Lander Oct 17th Predatory Internet Grooming
John-Michael Lander is the Voice for the Voiceless and the founder of An Athlete’s Silence. As an athlete, he silently endured sexual abuse and trafficking from the adults entrusted with this training while winning gold medals at the Norway and Danish Cups. He broke his silence with the TedTalk, “An Athlete’s Silence,” and developed the Predatory Grooming Trifecta© and Predatory Internet Grooming© (PIG). He has been interviewed for TIME and the George Clooney Productions Company’s documentary about the Ohio State/Dr. Strauss Sex Scandal. He has two novels, Surface Tension and Cracked Surface. As a certified Trainer and Coach for The Self-Talk Institute, John-Michael is passionate about helping people overcome trauma, change their thinking, and change their lives. 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
April T Giauque Oct 26th OUT of Darkness
Trapped. I was in Domestic Violence for 9.5 years with no hope of escaping—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.
When I finally scaped, I needed to find ways to heal. One way was that I had to take a deep dive into my life and see why I acted and believed the way I did.
For the first time in my life, I leaned against the side of a cage, and noticed that I was trapped in the Comfort Cage. I knew I needed to get out. But how?
You can't stand in light while sheltering in the Darkness. Step out of Darkness and into Light!
Pain. Fear. Shame. They all thrive in darkness, in unpredictability, in loneliness, and in feeling friendless or unloved. Where are these voices? In your head! They say things like, "you are not enough, or you are too much." Darkness feeds them because they are hidden deep within you. They are like a black hole sucking all your energy and robbing your light from shining.
Are you tired of walking around in a darkened state of mind never changing? Are you satisfied with sheltering in the darkness? Is there something you are hoping for? Are you wanting to come out of the darkness to find light? If you're feeling trapped by the voice in your head? it's NOT too late to come Out of Darkness and into freedom! It won't be easy. Pain, fear, and shame will all take an emotional, physical, and mental stand against you. But don't give up! You are not alone in this battle.
"Out of Darkness" is a parallel companion book to "Pinpoints of Light: Escaping the Abyss of Abuse." It is April Tribe Giauque's journey of her life, what she learned in abuse, what she learned after the abuse, and how to never fall back into abuse (self-inflicted or otherwise).
April Tribe Giauque shows you in, Out of Darkness, a powerful method to find your light. She will empower you to:
- Identify your enemy and how to defeat him. You are worth fighting for!
- Discover your self-worth and the beauty that you are. You are more than you know!
- Say YES to loving yourself.
Deep breath. Be brave. She is in the pages of the book and will walk the journey with you to find, fuel, and live in your light! You are worth it!
