Forgiveness is an essential part of being a Christian. But what do we do when confronted with the unforgivable--an act that shakes our moral foundations to their roots, often committed by someone trusted and loved? 

Murder, sexual abuse, adultery--all leave lifelong wounds and all are trespasses that, through the grace of God, can be forgiven. Dr. David Stoop compassionately guides us along the course of heartfelt forgiveness, freeing us to apply the biblical teachings that have already changed thousands of lives.


by Heather Burch 

Home. That’s what the best love feels like: the place you belong, the place you return to, the place you’d rather be no matter where you are.

In One Lavender Ribbon, home is all those things and a refuge for a World War II hero who writes often of his. But his letters, hidden in an attic and forgotten, are about much more than love and home. They reminded me - just as they do Adrienne and Will - how to live.
