What is ‘a book’ ?


‘a book’ is a global self-help book.

 ‘a book’ is being written with the intention of starting a large-scale conversation.

‘a book’ discusses how we as humans can possibly change ourselves and our social structures in order to improve the global condition for all living [or non-living] things.


The first three steps are the foundation stones that need to be set before the bigger picture can be observed and adjusted for the benefit of our planet and all its inhabitants.

Until we can make adjustments to our relationships with ourselves, our chosen families & friends…we have no business trying to change external people/places or things.

‘a book’ is just one human's idealistic attempt at a global realignment to reduce the unnecessary levels of pain and suffering for all.

  If we believe it, we achieve it..I believe it is possible, do you?

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.
