Review: Forgiving Our Fathers And MothersUser Review - Lindsay - Goodreads
This book is excellent. It focuses on forgiveness, compassion, and honor for parents whose actions are less than honorable or outright abusive, all from a biblical perspective. This was like a breath of fresh air. Read full review
