Kom ons wy ons aan Hom toe, kom ons streef daarna om ons aan die Here toe te wy.
Die Here sal verskyn, so seker as die son opkom, Hy sal na ons toe kom soos stortreen,
Hy sal ons verkwik soos lentereens die grond verkwik. - Hosea 6:3
DIE KONING SE DONKIE
Ons leef en dien in Christus-sekerheid

WAY BETTER THAN POPCORN
A true story of survival and healing.
 
Genre: Novel: young adult and adult 
 
WAY BETTER THAN POPCORN is the true story of a larger than life, vulnerable and indomitable mother whose younger son could not live with her biggest mistake. Four years after that fatal mistake she said to him: “We want you to talk to us about your problems. We stand by you, Rocher."  He stared at her and her fifth husband. His reaction: "You can’t solve them:  you are my problems. They start with you."
WAY BETTER THAN POPCORN is about family secrets and shames. It is a riveting, hilarious story of Hades and heaven, hurting and healing. This story is a blessing and a gift.
Deadpan humour is Rocher's trademark. So is honesty:
 
"Natasha speaks to me; she taps with her fingers against my cheek. 'Knock-knock,” she says. “Are you there?'
  “'I’m sorry,' I say.
“'Then show me you’re sorry.'
 “'How?' I ask, but I actually know what she means.
“'Wake up, Rocher,' she says. 'There’s a moon in the sky above you. You’ve got arms, hands and a mouth –'
She slides from the rock and stands in front of me. She puts her arms around me and throws her head backward.. When did she start chewing strawberry gum? Her breath does not smell like coffee and condensed milk any more. 'Do you love me?' she pleads.  I don’t answer her question. I start the French kiss and she does with me what she did with the chocolate and condensed milk and biscuits. She cannot get enough."
 
"To carry a coffin is no easy task. You feel the coffin and the weight of the body inside it.
 "I am carrying my dad, I think while we wind our way through the graveyard with its millions of tombstones to the open grave. How strange. I am small but I carry my dad. I can feel him. He is big, strong and heavy. I know exactly what his mouth and eyes look like now. The last time when I visited him, I saw him sleeping on the couch in front of the TV."
 
Way better than Popcorn is an unforgettable novel about faith, healing and the Son of God who forever says: "With man it is impossible, but not with God. For all things are possible with God."
