“The Gift of Forgiveness” by Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt is an inspiring book on the power of forgiveness and how it is much more a gift for yourself rather than those you forgive. It is a story about overcoming and about beginning again in the face of tragedy. It is about moving forward and letting go instead of being controlled by something or someone that has wronged you in the past.
Ms. Schwarzenegger’s nonfiction collection of the lessons learned by some of the most inspiring sources is very powerful. Some of the powerful people who share their stories include Elizabeth Smart, Sarah Klein, Immaculee Ilibagiza, Nadia Bolz-Weber, DeVon Franklin, Sue Klebold, Mark Kelly, Tanya Brown, Adel Altamimi and many others.
This is a quick read, but also a book to come back to time and time again as you face the challenges of this life. There is some important lessons about becoming whole in a place where brokenness abounds.
