Forgiveness is hard. You have been wronged. Something may have been taken from you and you are left with hurt and possibly bitterness about the injustice. How do you overcome that? What is the process for truly forgiving someone? This is a difficult topic that we are tackling in this week’s episode with Sarah Montana.
As a young girl in her early twenties and only a few days before Christmas, Sarah Montana’s mother and brother were murdered in their home by a 17-year-old who broke into their house. Her incredible story challenges us to dig into the meaning of forgiveness and begin the process towards true healing.
If you have struggled to let something from your past go or release someone from built up bitterness this is a MUST listen. We talk about the healing process, the difference between anger and hatred, and how to reclaim and move on with your life after a tragedy.
Questions I Asked Sarah:
How can we free ourselves from wanting revenge?
How did you get to the place where you were able to forgive?

The process of forgiveness.
The moment when she discovered that she did not know what forgiveness was.
How we know if we are forgiving for the wrong reasons.
