The Path to Forgiveness (Blue Mountain Arts, 2018)
Forgiving is difficult. So is carrying the weight of undeserved hurt and pain. The Path to Forgiveness is for those who are struggling with an unjust painful experience and in need of healing and hope in their life.
When we are hurt by another it affects our emotions, thoughts, and behavior. Forgiveness enables us to transform our negative energy and to use it positively to restore peace and meaning to our life again. Making the decision to forgive and practice forgiveness strategies offers the hope of a better future.
