Wash n' go ;)

24/7 Revolution Laundrette.

Have clothes in washer.

Almost done to wash.

Someone sneaks in and puts clothes in the dryer for 30 mins.

Have things to do today.

Wasting valuable time.

Irritation builds.

Time is up on their dry time.

They are late.

A woman walks up with toddler in arm.

Ends up being the dryer holder-upper.

We laugh.

Imagining our small people and how they make us run on a different clock.

Forgiveness is a funny thing.

Pulling her clothes out of dryer she can't look at us really...and she gets her items as fast as she can manage.

All is forgiven.

Shite Happens to us all.

Life goes on.



Peace, Love & Happiness,


Saddleback Church one family, many locations


A.s.C., was born the eldest of Howie and Ann Sarmiento of Saddleback Church's main Human Trafficking Ministry based in Southern California. A.s.C. was brought up volunteering from a young age and raised to help wherever possible. It was ingrained in her that although the world can be beautiful and wonderful…it can also be frightening and destructive for many who lose their way in life and it was always a personal responsibility to lift up whomever whenever and be the change she believed was needed in the world. This book is a tribute to the Sarmiento family and their struggles against the odds to help their community. Join A.s.C. and her writings and show support for her family at

Project Cuddle


While A.s.C. volunteered for Project Cuddle, her understanding of the great need for support and counselling for families, young women and children throughout the world grew. Project Cuddles efforts of providing safe and loving homes to babies that would otherwise be abandoned or thrown into the machine we call ‘Child Services’ to grow up in foster care or orphanages is felt and deeply appreciated by many.

The tremendous support and advice Project Cuddle provides to women, babies & adoptive families through their compassion and strong leadership still inspires many today.

Girl Guides


The Irish Girl Guides is an exceptional example of how an organisation can encourage young women to become the best they can be. Through the experience of volunteering to support a progressive youth leadership program and being privileged to be a part of such an inspirational organization has inspired A.s.C.’s works in many ways.
