Celibacy’s Child: A True Story

 My dear friends
 
Hello!  I am asking a personal favor and this is to support my Mother by either buying the download of her book or passing this on to someone who will find it of interest,  especially those of us raised Catholic
 
 It was years in the making and is a miraculous story of forgiveness and family bonds.
 
The book “Celibacy’s Child”  has been published to the Kindle Store and is already available* for readers to purchase HERE

She will be on TV tomorrow Tuesday in the 8 AM hour PST on the Morning Scramble TV show. See www.aztv.com in Phoenix or online to learn more about my Mother’s personal journey and her way to forgiveness. Please share this with your Facebook /Twitter followings by clicking HERE

Celibacy’s Child Book Synopsis  Celibacy’s Child by Lisa B. Overton is an emotionally rigged, true story of a women’s life starting from the first day she was brought into this world up to the present.  This moving story details her experience growing up as the child of a Roman Catholic priest and an ex-nun who entered into a 30+ year clandestine love affair.   The author, Lisa B. Overton tells the poignant story of her childhood and how she survived loneliness, shame and hypocrisy in her parents’ painful and secretive shadow and how she eventually forgave them both.  It was on her mother’s death bed that Lisa asked, “was Uncle my father?”  Uncle was how she addressed the priest who came to visit on Sundays.  She didn’t know Uncle was her father.   Celibacy’s Child tells the tale of a forbidden love and the child who was. According to the author Lisa B Overton, “I wrote this book, not with malice towards the Catholic church, but with the hope that one day Rome will remove celibacy from its doctrine. The stigma of shame that infected my mother’s life as well as my own came at a horrific price for both of us. I grew up loathing myself, as well as her for the false lives we both had to live. I felt no self-worth, had no friends. No schoolmates were allowed into our home.  We were always fearful that people would find out our secret.  The life I was forced to live drove me away from my mother, I grew to hate her. This made me a demon to live with. My teen years were rebellious, driving me further and further away from her. It has taken me years to heal and writing this book has helped me to love and understand her. I miss her so.”

Green Drinks International


Every month people who work in the environmental field meet up at informal sessions known as Green Drinks.

We have a lively mixture of people from NGOs, academia, government and business. Come along and you’ll be made welcome. Just say, “are you green?” and we will look after you and introduce you to whoever is there. It’s a great way of catching up with people you know and also for making new contacts. Everyone invites someone else along, so there’s always a different crowd, making Green Drinks an organic, self-organising network.

These events are very simple and unstructured, but many people have found employment, made friends, developed new ideas, done deals and had moments of serendipity. It’s a force for the good and we’d like to help it spread to other cities. Contact your local node to get the latest info about coming along.

If there is no Green Drinks near you, you might want to set up a Green Drinks in your City.
