About the Book
Love & Forgiveness is the first of a six volume pocket book series called the MeatyWord Series. Each volume of the series will focus on a very essential Biblical principle and its application in our daily lives. In Love & Forgiveness, love and forgiveness are defined Biblically and then contrasted with worldly use. The book explores what love is, what love does, how love feels, the importance of repentance and forgiveness and the benefits of both.

PODCAST 3 - Excerpt
This book was unbelievable hard to put down. As a person who struggled with issues of identity, love and unforgiveness, I found myself nodding, weeping (a bit), and stopping every once in a while to thank God. I am so thankful that I woke up and realized that by choosing God, I was choosing to love myself and that forgiveness is a gift you give yourself, whether the wounder is repentant or not. It is at the point of forgiveness that we can begin to heal and have a rebirth. Although I have come such a long way from the severely wounded woman that I once was, I do wish that I had been able to get my hands on a copy of this book back then.
Love & Forgiveness is broken down into seven cohesive sections:
- Introduction (Belief/Salvation)
- Pop Culture vs The Bible
- Oneness of Giving and Receiving
