 Book Description:

Are unresolved feelings of anger, resentment, and guilt keeping you from living your best life? It's time to let go of the pain and make the life-changing decision to forgive. A stirring new work from bestselling author Ganel-Lyn Condie, I Can Forgive with God features the personal accounts of an incredible group of women who have harnessed the power of forgiveness after enduring the furnace of affliction. from divorce and death to addiction and abuse, these sisters' experiences are linked by one common truth: the power of absolution is available to all through hard work and faithful reliance on our loving Heavenly Father.

The women spotlighted in these stories have come face-to-face with devastating tragedies and trials, ultimately learning to forgive those who have hurt them—including themselves. With the help of this book, you too can find strength in the Lord—the giver of grace—to see your mistakes and others' through the lens of forgiveness.

My Review:
I was very interested in reading this story about forgiveness. I've been trying hard to practice forgiving ever since my husband left me and my kids almost eight years ago. There were many days when I struggled not to let bitterness overcome me. Things have gotten better and I have learned to forgive him, but I'm always looking for additional ways to help me. By reading other women's stories and how they were able to learn to forgive was a very healing experience. As one woman said, forgiving doesn't always mean forgetting and it takes time. Not only do you gain insight about how to forgive others, but better yet you gain knowledge about how to forgive yourself in dealing with life's trials and tragedies. 

One thing I really loved in the book is what the author said about Forgiveness...

"Forgiveness is an inside job. That work can't be observed, and we don't see the struggle that accompanies this private path."

Those words are so true because often people wear masks and we don't see what they are going through in their lives. We can't judge others and we just need to forgive and let it go. I know that this is hard, believe me, I know. In order to find true happiness and healing though we must go through this process.

The stories in this book cover many topics such as:

  • Moments of Truth
  • Marriage/Divorce
  • Parenthood
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Looking Past the Past
As I read this book, I shed many tears for the heartache others have gone through. I also shed tears as I related things to my own life. The tears soon turned to joy as readers see how God can help in the forgiveness process. This book will really help people change their lives for the good.
