Synopsis

Abuse is an empty word before it becomes a learned context or sadly, an experience! Education systems currently are missing a curriculum that teaches the word and context. Canadian statistics show that 3 in 5 girls and 1 in 6 boys face abuse and 93% of abuse is usually from someone children are supposed to trust. If abuse prevention education was taught early to kids, starting at reading ages, 5 years old we, as a national community, would see reduced victims, early offenders, youth mental health, addiction, trafficking even suicide. By legislating for a new and mandated law for an Abuse Awareness and Prevention Week in our schools, we as a nation can reshape the safety and future for our kids and their kids!

Sexual assault victims face intimidation and re-victimization with the current outdated Canadian Justice platform. It’s policies and rules solely protects the rights for “innocent till proven guilty,” which sadly result into the victims feeling re-victimized, intimidated, quitting, with expensive post mental health recovery costs even tragically suicide. If we, as community ruthlessly stand and hold the Canadian Justice system account to uphold a full public review and change for more current policies and rules, together we can see positive support and change for all victims!

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (also known as ALS, Lou Gehrig’s disease, or motor neurone disease) is a disease that gradually paralyzes people because the brain is no longer able to communicate with the muscles of the body that we are typically able to move at will. Over time, as the muscles of the body break down, someone living with ALS will lose the ability to walk, talk, eat, swallow, and eventually breathe. Every 90 minutes someone is diagnosed with ALS and every 90 minutes someone dies from ALS, there is no cure with a prognosis of only 2-5 years. Through global urgency for awareness, education and funding a cure is possible and many lives can be saved.

I'm Charmaine Loverin, Founder of the Centre for Mental Health Transformation (CFMHT) and Loverin’s Law. I grew up in a blue collar small town as a bisexual, C-average student. School was tough - I was one of those kids bullied - and my home life I was physically, emotionally, mentally, and sexually abused. After graduating high school at 17, I left for the big city and my new home, Toronto! I would quickly make new friends, boyfriends, and would venture into all kinds of jobs that would shape and influence my life in big ways. The next 30 years, I would change my career on two separate spectrums from marketing to mental health - leading two companies to award-winning status and prestige. At 34, I became a mom to two gems who would teach me how to live with vulnerability, wonderment, transparency and truth. I continued to live “love” as I knew it to be, loving beautiful people with two polar sides: one side full of love and fun, and the other, intermittent with familiar childhood memories of harm. Being a mom, combined with my past, it all drove a deeper responsibility for reshaping abuse prevention and lead me to ultimately creating the initiative known as Loverin's Law. Then at 52, God would give me his final and toughest plan. It’s now a battle against time, uplifting and leaving behind a whole life to design a new life into living healing or dying with ALS.

This is a real life story that will explore what it means to truly have faith and, this book aims to reveal those inevitable miracles that appear when we choose to have faith and believe.

  • Conversations with God, An Uncommon Dialogue Book 1, Author, Neale Donald Walsche | Published October 29, 1996 by G. P. Putnam’s Sons. How “God?! WTF?!” differs because it’s a personal life story riddled in detours of trauma, leaning on faith. Since childhood “though shall not lie” gets confronting when living in a life of lies, I decide for good, being a mom to live that testament even if it means exposing ugly secrets! God has his plan through me! It’s raw, real and revealing!
  • No one ever asked, Author, Katie Ganshert, Published April 3rd 2018 by WaterBrook | How God? WTF?! differs is I, like the women in Ganshert’s story go head to head with social and systemic change in context of sexual assault. It is one woman’s personal journey to reshape the future of all kids in time she know longer thought she had now diagnosed with the most rare and severe terminal illness. It’s chilling, eventful and inspiring.
  • Daring Greatly, Author, Dr. Brene Brown, Published September 11, 2012 by Avery | God? WTF?! Differs because I am not a researcher nor teacher or teaching about daring greatly and vulnerability, I am the actual real life example and subject of the two. It’s a life-long personal story taking a gamble on living a life transparent with hope and promise met with shock, trauma, reward, love and hope.

    Sooooo excited to hear about your recent Blessings!! I've always wanted to start my own publishing company for so many reasons, but my mind couldn't comprehend that if you wanted to break free, you must first smash the mould. Transparency and integrity in publishing bring a welcome breath of fresh air into my lungs for me 🙂

    Awaiting with much eagerness your summary. Good luck. You have it within you to determine the outcome.

    Sending more blessings out into the universe for you 🙂
