Publisher's Summary

You deserve to stop suffering because of what other people have done to you.

Have you ever felt stuck in a cycle of unresolved pain, playing offenses over and over in your mind? You know you can't go on living like this, but you don't know what to do next. Lysa TerKeurst has wrestled through this journey. But in surprising ways, she’s discovered how to let go of bound-up resentment and overcome the resistance to forgiving people who aren’t willing to make things right.

With deep empathy, therapeutic insight, and rich Bible teaching coming out of over 1,000 hours of theological study, Lysa will help you:

  • Learn how to move on when the other person refuses to change and never says they're sorry.
  • Walk through a step-by-step process to free yourself from the hurt of your past and feel less offended today.
  • Discover what the Bible really says about forgiveness and the peace that comes from living it out right now.
  • Identify what's stealing trust and vulnerability from your relationships so you can believe there is still good ahead.
  • Disempower the triggers hijacking your emotions by embracing the two necessary parts

When the student is ready to receive the teacher appears

This book was written for me Soo many things paralleled my journey Told in such a way that I could understand & not feel ashamed that I have not been able to forgive To understand that what happened to me was devastating but not the end of who I Am With gratitude Lysa...

Worth the Read

If you're struggling with forgiveness of others over some really difficult issues then this is the text book to move towards healing. We each have to do the work to heal, to forgive. Lysa's book helps you do just that.

Waaaay Toooo Many Bible references...dragged on.

She basically is pushing Jesus, God and the Bible. Which is fine but if someone is agnostic, or not Christian this book is very bible thumpy. Nothing about mental health or cognitive behavior solutions. I should have researched the author before purchasing. Don’t get this book if you’re not Christian, it drags on otherwise. I wanted to like this book, but everything in it referred back to a verse in the Bible....I’ve actually read the Bible front to back.

Quick summary

I’ve just listen to around 2h, but this book is apparently not for me due to my religion beliefs. Too many mentions about god made me to stop listening to that recording. I’m greatly convinced that Christians will appreciate that book.
