Forgiving Therapy Tools That Work
Forgiving Therapy is very hard work, often with so little to show for it. It can consume a great deal of your client’s time and emotional energy. So often, it is two steps forward, one step back. Aren’t you tired of forgiveness related…

Just finished the Forgiving Path 9 part ministry tool with a small group. Outstanding and so helpful to say the least. Lives were changed!
I went from hating my perpetrator, wanting them to feel the pain and shame that they put me through. That was Wednesday morning. By Wednesday evening I had so much peace for them.

Thank you! This was a wonderful experience and it helped me to also reflect on my wrong doings to others. I was able to sit and cry out to God Thank you!
“To be able to come before this celestial judge and to hear from him that my case has been heard and to know that he’s heard the damage those crimes have done, and that restoration is possible is such good news!”

This reinforced my belief in the justice of God. I know that I don’t need to have retribution in this life to be happy. But I know this will occur because God will take care of it…Thank you for this resource.

This gave me opportunity to cry and to cry out deeply from years of holding it in, keeping it safe, without embarrassment or shame.

“I was surprise when I asked the Lord who I should be bringing to trial–I thought I was all done with that–I experienced healing and release.”
“I mostly feel relieved that some of the guilt I have been internalizing has been lifted. I feel worthy…I should not feel like it is all my fault that I was unloved.”
“This [crime] does not have to own me anymore. I do not have to define myself by another’s [abusive] behavior.”
In that hour and over the following weeks my life changed. I got my hearing. I got my day in court. I got the justice I longed to have.

“Going through the Forgiving Path helped me to see and understand that forgiveness was not an event, but rather an ongoing process… I can say that most of the bitterness is gone and though I still experience grief once in a while, the shackles of unforgiveness no longer ensnare me.

“I didn’t even know I was so wounded–but I see how it colored my ‘view’ of the world. Already I have noticed a different view of myself. I see God’s restoration and healing. I see that I have been healed of a very deep crime.”
It isn’t fair! …Why doesn’t God step in and do something? We discover counter-intuitive yet proven answers along the Forgiving Path. The Path offers real, tangible, substantive steps toward fairness and forgiveness. Who knew? Highly recommended.

“Everyone has something in their memory in need of “attending to.” …Not “religious” programs or religiosity. Give me Truth, give me authenticity, give me willingness to at least check things out broadly-deep.
