Today’s book is a little different than the usual light-hearted fiction, but it’s one that I was eager to read. I Can Forgive with God is a collection of stories of healing from Mormon Women compiled by Ganel-Lyn Condie.
I used to think I understood forgiveness–it’s something you give to a person when you do something wrong, right? Yes, it is, but it’s so much more than that. What about when you are the person who is innocent? The person who has done absolutely nothing wrong? According to the Bible, we are all required to forgive. In my personal life, I’ve never had trouble offering and accepting forgiveness when the offense was a two-way street, but I’ve learned so much about another side of forgiveness that for me, has been a huge challenge. I Can Forgive with God may be a book that can help you find peace if you’ve struggled to forgive someone in a situation where you were an innocent party. This book encompasses all kinds of scenarios and needs of forgiveness, but this is what spoke to me because it’s what I needed to hear right now. I needed to hear the reminder, that no matter what has happened to me, I Can Forgive with God. Thank you, Ganel-Lyn Condie for producing a beautiful book that helps people draw closer to Christ and utilize the atonement and the amazing power of forgiveness.
