What is Forgiveness?

what is forgiveness Once a victim of horrendous sexual, physical and emotional abuse, Sylane Mack shares with passion, vulnerability, and some specifics about being victimized by her family and being raped by a stranger at age 12.

Her story is a mirror reflecting Christ’s suffering and His redeeming work and forgiveness in our lives. Jesus’ unfailing love has renewed and healed Sylane’s mind and spirit allowing her to forgive, live and love with a passion and joy that only comes from our Savior.

If you are a victim of abuse and still need healing, you may react strongly to Sylane’s story. It’s as ugly, beautiful and miraculous a story as you’re ever likely to hear. But remember: No matter what, love conquers ALL!
