The Book of Forgiving | August Book Club

In The Book of Forgiving, Desmond Tutu and his daughter, Mpho, explain the four-step process of forgiveness—Telling the Story, Naming the Hurt, Granting Forgiveness, and Renewing or Releasing the Relationship—as well as offer meditations, exercises, and prayers to guide the reader along the way.

The perfect companion for your forgiveness journey, The Book of Forgiving lays out the simple but profound truths about the significance of forgiveness and why granting forgiveness is the greatest gift we can give to ourselves.

This is a special book and I will be hosting a special movie about forgiveness, Just Let Go on September 28th. You can like them on Facebook and see the movie trailer: It is a Fathom movie event and will be shown for one night all over the county on September 28th. The producers of Just Let Go have teamed up with Desmond Tuto to tell people about the Forgiveness Challenge.  You can find out frequently ask question and more about the Forgiveness Challenge here:  This is a special book that will help in your walk to forgive.

"Without forgiveness, we remain tethered to the person who harmed us... Until we can forgive the person who harmed us, they will hold the keys to our happiness, they will be our jailor."
