As a relatively new Candid Gal and blogger, I find myself obsessed with and validated by the numbers, such as shares, tweets, likes, and comments; however, as a reader, I rarely do any of these things. A post may be so encouraging that I want to stand up and applaud. Others are so true that it’s all I can do to contain a silent tear or a burst of laughter. Many times, I don’t truly comprehend the impact of a post until days, weeks, or even months later. By then, all that I remember is “I read somewhere that…”, yet the writer’s wisdom comes back to me in perfect timing.

Forgiveness: How to Give to Others as Jesus Gave to You

Let’s talk about the proverbial “F” word of the Bible: Forgive. Go ahead, say it; try not to choke. Does the very thought light a red-hot flame of self-defense? Christians celebrate forgiveness as the greatest gift our Savior died to give us, yet we…
