I have been a fan of Lori's novels in the past--but my niece and her husband are among those facing charges for child abuse under the teachings of this cult. Members are brainwashed or shunned (for non-compliance), and family after family has been torn apart by this. Lori not only knows what is going on and supports it financially, the church is sometimes held in her home.

Lori and her husband not only donated to ABC, they are members, as well. They have full knowledge of what goes on, and it is their son Tim who is being charged along with seven others. I'm sorry to say Lori was foolish enough to go along with this- she and her mother-in-law love this kind of teaching, since it puts others on edge.

I am sure Lori Wick wouldn't knowingly support child abusers. It said in the report that they gave money to the church when it first opened, maybe it was different then. Besides an author writes from the heart, I think anyone who has read Lori's books would not think her to be cruel to children or anyone else. Besides it is unwise to judge. You never know if what is on the internet is true.

Lori Wick donated a large sum of money to a church that promotes hitting infants and young children with wooden implements. The "pastor" and his brother have been arrested, and other church members are in legal trouble because of the abuse. Two of these church members appear to be her relatives, as they share the last name of Wick. I hope her career suffers as a result of her complicity in this abuse. If she did not know that this pastor preaches causing pain even to month old infants, then she shows very poor judgment in donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to someone she did not know.

I will never read another one of her books and will spread the word to all that will listen. ANYONE that would financially support a church with such crude, cruel treatment of innocent infants does not deserve fame or success. Shame shame on you Lori, I hope your career is toast.

Not fair to call her a child abuser. The charges are against the pastors of this church. We should not rush to judgement against everyone. The thought of infants being hit is aborant but let's wait to here more of the facts.

Please tell me why people like to read books by a child abuser? Is she really "Christian." Are those who buy her books really "Christian?"

This woman is a child abuser & any supporters of this type of "discipline" fall under that label as well. Small children should not be beaten or spanked with crude instruments ever. This is uneducated, abusive & has no part of a good spiritual upbringing. How can anyone regard this woman as a true author or expert on parenting? That is truly frightening. I hope justice will prevail for those poor children.

Careful who you support and give your money to. It appears that Lori is funding a cult that encourages child abuse. Check out Madison, WI news web pages for the full story.
MADISON (WKOW) -- Dane County authorities say eight people from Black Earth and Mazomanie are facing child abuse charges in a sixteen-month investigation.
In November of 2010, former members of the Aleitheia Bible Church (ABC) came forward and told detectives about their concerns about the mistreatment of children.
The five men and three women arrested belong to ABC. Authorities say the church was formed in 2006, when some members of the Curtis Street Bible Fellowship broke away to start their own church, with a starting donation of between $500,000 and $600,000 from Bob and Lori Wick of Mazomanie.
One of the suspects arrested, Philip B. Caminiti, served as the head pastor for ABC. The small congregation held worship services and meetings at members' homes. Another suspect, Matthew Caminiti, was also an elder at ABC.

I truly hope to see more of Lori Wick's books in the future. I want her to write another book about Silas and Amy in the "A Place called Home Series". I've personally known 4 people who have become pregnant after 10, 15 and 20 years of marriage. Lori, I hope you've had a good rest. You have been missed.
