This book is equipped with many scriptural references to aid the reader in his//her quest of forgiveness. “Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.” Ephesians 3:20

How did the book, The Forgiving Wife come up? It was the year 2007 when the Holy Spirit prompt me to write about my story. At first, I was reluctant and pulled back, but the spirit of God kept pressing upon me. I finally decided to start jutting information here and there. As I started to gather more and more memories of my early marriage each day. I realized that I didn’t have a name for the book. I then consulted God about giving me a name for the book. Within ten minutes of me asking, the Holy Spirit spoke quite clearly and said calmly, The Forgiving Wife. Not putting up a fight with what I heard and felt, I continued writing. As I gained confidence in writing my book, my marriage once again started to spiral downhill in 2011. I then started to doubt my book and asked what sense was it to continue? There was no way I could finish my book. How would I end it? Not sure of which way to steer my writing anymore, I was forced to stop writing. After taking another blow to my marriage in October of 2015.Two years later I finally realized that my battling marriage was far bigger than my husband and me. This was far beyond our intellect. I realized that we were not walking this road for ourselves but, for someone else. July 30th, 2017, I began to consolidate all of the writing pieces into chapters. After receiving approval from my husband to write about our personal, behind the scenes relationship. I then had a clearer understanding as to why I was writing this book in the first place. It was to help broken and hurting women out there. I wanted to let the world know that Jesus is still in the business of restoring, healing, changing and saving lives! I’m not asking you if Jesus can do it, I’m telling you that he can! I urge readers that if you don’t have Jesus as the head of your marriage and home, get him because you will need him! Some battles you win and some you lose. Whatever the case may be, don’t allow your marital issues cause you to become so disoriented that you want nothing to do with life anymore. Neither let them allow you to lose your integrity, your dignity, nor your identity! At the end of the day, both spouses must want the same thing. This book is intended to help both men and women. I explained in this book that fighting for your marriage is not an easy fight. As a matter of fact, in the book shows how difficult and discouraging it got for me at times. I talked about how I was at my lowest point. Where I felt like my breath was literally being snuffed away from me, but God! It talks about how I was so confused at times; I almost lost my mind. I do not suggest you stay in a marriage if the situation is life threatening. This book does not talk about having a perfect marriage. As a matter of fact, my book shows that my marriage is still far from perfect, we must learn to accept imperfections as well. You won’t regret buying this book. The content is intriguing, the events are interesting and engaging. And the message is authentic!

Each individual has been hurt emotionally, physically, psychologically, or spiritually at some point in his or her life. Although some people have been able to address their painful issue and move on, far too many persons resolve that they “will never forgive” the person who has injured them. Victor D. Marshall holds the view that people who are unable to forgive and let go of past hurts have not experienced healing. In fact, the major principle of On the Road to Forgiveness: Experiencing Healing on the Way is that “for a person to forgive, he needs to experience some degree of healing; and to experience healing, an individual needs to forgive themselves and others.” Out of this audacious perspective, Victor has developed eight principles, on which each chapter is built. Marshall then identifies five stages that every individual needs to pass through in order to experience healing and move on with his or her life. In his biblically grounded, insightful, and well-researched book, Victor uses a psycho-spiritual approach to illustrate the impact of forgiveness on our lives. A key element of this volume, On the Road to Forgiveness is the practical cases he includes to provide analytical discussions. If you are struggling with issues of forgiveness, this book identifies ways by which you can overcome “living in the past.” Victor also shares some major discoveries about the psychological benefits of forgiving others, one of which is that forgiveness contributes to the fulfillment of various psychological needs. As you turn the pages of this intriguing book, you will be helped to experience emotional freedom, be encouraged to develop your spirituality further, and ultimately grasp the importance of focusing on issues of eternal value. May the Divine One be with you on this journey!

A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself. - Joseph Campbell What Cindy Currier teaches us is that everyone has the potential to be a hero. Despite years spent struggling with her troubled past, Cindy finally found the strength to let go of her trauma and move forward into a life of happiness and peace. Though this kind of healing can require a monumental amount of strength and temerity, Forgiveness: A Hero's Journey shows that any feat can be accomplished through determination and faith in God's love. Once lost in the woods of despair and hatred, Cindy faced down witches, ogres and all manner of beasts before emerging once more into the sunlight. Now, in simple sections and with heartfelt words, she explores the nature of Anger, Fear, Shame, Guilt, and ultimately Forgiveness and how it can be achieved. The journey to forgiveness is cyclical: It begins with a call to adventure (dissatisfaction with life as it is), and is followed closely by chaos (a life event that calls into question old beliefs and thought patterns), battling enemies (marshaling new coping skills and strategies), spiritual awakening (development of new insights, new self-awareness), and carrying the message home (sharing new insights with others). Following these steps will enable anyone to overcome the monsters of anger and shame and emerge from the forest into forgiveness and love, and to share that love with the world.

"Husna's Story is written by Husna's husband Farid Ahmed. They were praying at El Noor Mosque in Christchurch when a gunman burst in and shot and killed 51 people and injured many others in a terrorist attack. This book tells Husna's story, describing the day of the attack - in all of its normal, mundane detail up until the tragedy, and then the horrendous tragedy of what followed. Interwoven with this is the story of Husna's life, telling of the selflessness and bravery with which she lived her life. As well as looking after her paraplegic husband, Husna was an important member of the community, helping women when they were giving birth, running classes for children and helping many others. Her last selfless act was going back into the mosque to look for her husband on that fateful day. She had already led the other women and children to safety. Tragically she was shot. Husna's husband, Farid Ahmed, quite incredibly, forgives the alleged killer. His remarkable philosophy of forgiveness, peace and love is an example of how religion and faith, through personal application, can be a tool for navigating the most horrific of tragedies."--Publisher's description.
