Forgiving Others, Forgiving Me

Forgiving Others, Forgiving Me releases today!

I created a new website for Forgiving Others, Forgiving Me. At, you can:

+ Locate bookstores are selling

+ Learn why I wrote the book

+ FREE Extras: Download Chapter 1 for free and a free eBook of all the scriptures on forgiveness from my book.

Also, at, I will soon be releasing Chapter Videos so you can go along with the Discussions Questions at the back of the book. If you’re looking to host a 7-week Bible Study on forgiveness, you will be able to soon!

In my new book you can learn to forgive your past and discover your future.

“I had been writing in my journal every night since my life fell apart. My skin was covered in rashes, the medication had caused me to gain one hundred pounds, I dealt with crippling bouts of anxiety and I lost my first love. I needed healing. God did heal me, in a big way. God came alive as I wrote to him, and it was there in my journal that I found what I was searching for—forgiveness” (Forgiving Others, Forgiving Me).

In Forgiving Others, Forgiving Me, my aim is to reach out with an important message—”there is freedom in Christ from your past hurts, present circumstances and future fears.”

I draw from personal experiences and share real quotes from everyday people alongside stories of Biblical characters including Job, Jonah and Joseph and their journeys to forgiveness.

Providing a three-step process, I offer you, the reader, encouraging words to guide you through the healing process and insight into the most important aspects of forgiveness including:

• Christians are taught to forgive each other, but little emphasis is put on the fact that many of us need to forgive ourselves.

• Forgiveness is a personal process and is always a choice we can make.

• If we choose to not forgive, it not only affects the person we choose not to pardon, but it affects our body, heart and minds.

• Forgiveness matters because of the cross.

I also utilize scripture throughout the book and provides Bible verses with room for the reader to journal and reflect at the end of each chapter. Forgiving Others, Forgiving Meprovides the tools to find freedom from pain to purpose.

Below is my original book cover from 10 years ago. My professional photographer friend Angela McNeil of took pictures to help me recreate that same feeling I had 10 years ago with balloons.

I hope it serves as a reminder to you never to give up on your dreams–even if they take ten years like mine!

Dreams are worth the wait.

“Forgiveness is a personal process, and with God’s help you can overcome” (Forgiving Others, Forgiving Me).
