    I am the chaplain at LTCW in Tallulah, La. This book would be so beneficial in this facility. We have 500 female inmates and i am always counseling ladies on this very issue. If you could send me as many as possible for distribution it would be so very helpful. Thank you so much, Chaplain Carla Pilgreen

    I would love to read this… What’s hard is dealing with the situation when the offending party does not ask your forgiveness. Instead they move on as if the offense never occured and years later still treat you as if you should do the same (I’m not talking about a petty offense). In this situation you need to lean on God for strength and wisdom, and pray for peace

    I come from Hindu background. After marriage attended Church. I was like Jesus but never had the experience of Holy Spirit. When I first heard about Salvation, I googled to find the meaning. But after no hope I Surrendered to God, and that when God reminded me how I was holding unforgiveness against one person in my life. It was a very hard for me do myself because I was not able to forget and so the bitterness grew everyday. Since I know I won’t be able achieve myself I pleaded to God to help. God erased all the bitterness and gave a new heart. This is my salvation story
