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.


Listen to the podcast HERE


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.

@SarahMontana
❏ “Forgiveness and justice have an important relationship.” @SarahMontana
