How far can you go before it's too far for you to be rescued by anyone or by God? Peter Gladwin felt like everything was over for him - scarred and disabled, in trouble with the law and with drugs, and almost committing suicide - until his sister took him to a local church. He talks to Clayton about the change in his life and how he rose "out of the ashes" to become what he is today.

Kent Whitaker experienced a tragedy that most of us will never go through. On December 10th 2003, his wife and youngest son were murdered before his eyes by a masked gunman in their family home.
Kent and his eldest son Bart were also shot that night, and it was Bart that was accused to have arranged the 'hit' on his own family.
"it's a strange feeling to realise that you might actually be dying..." - Kent Whitaker tells Clayton.

Katrina Roe was frustrated to find that there were no books or resources to help her daughter understand her nut allegies. She was even more frustrated to find that most people misunderstand allergies, especially other parents. So she came on to tell Clayton about her new picture book, Marty's Nut-Free Party, that explains to both children and parents about what it means to have allergies.

Fighting addictions has been dramatised a lot over the last few years but Clayton's guest, Ryan Sholes, tells us about how he really turned his life around.
Ryan tells us how simply his addiction to alcohol started - through being a lot of exposure to it at home - and the long term consequences of it. But Ryan also tells us how important the support of his friends were through his struggle and what baptism meant to him as he turned his life around.
"Everything was so chaotic...but once they pulled me out of the water, it felt like layers coming off."

Doing charity work and helping NGO's can make people feel disconnected to the people they're striving to aid but the Watoto Choir approaches it differently. They meet the community, learn their stories, and spread their message once they understand what the children really need, not what we think they need.
Ruth Mitchell joined Clayton this morning to tell him about helping these impoverished African communities without imposing our culture onto them.
