Melanie Washington is someone who experienced God and speaks of God to each and every one of us, especially those of us who despise ourselves, despise the Bible and have given up on ourselves. She speaks to those of us who are struggling through the grudges we hold, especially in areas that are very hurtful and hard to touch, areas with the most painful scars. Through sharing her personal experience of forgiving the unforgivable such as the murder of her dearest loved ones and sexual abuse from different family members, she has been an open book. With regal grace, Melanie speaks from her heart with complete vulnerability and authenticity while sharing her real experience of wrestling with God. It can be easily related by each and every one of us. Whether you are struggling with something that you can’t forgive, trying to hide it or pretend that you have already forgiven, listening to Melanie will give you the courage and power to face yourself and confront what you have not forgiven. You will find the power to truly forgive and have the freedom to truly live and love.
