Mabel is a young girl whose parents' reckless decisions dealt her a cruel blow in life. She embarks on a journey, trying desperately to escape a dysfunctional and abusive home, but the journey takes her through ill treatment and neglect. It is only through others that she begins to learn to practice the art of forgiving so as to lessen the crippling weight and burden of unforgiveness. But just as she believes she will triumph and master the art of forgiving and forgetting, disaster strikes in Andrea Thompson's Forgiven but not forgotten: Mabel's Journey (paperback). This captivating new book will resonate with readers who need to learn how to forgive those who have inflicted hurt on them.
Says Thompson, "Forgiven but not forgotten: Mabel's Journey is an action-filled book which you won't be able to put down. It's riveted with acts of deception that some may find difficult to forgive, but forgiving is a necessity. You'll be itching to get the sequel, Forgiven but not forgotten: Deceptions."
The Upper Marlboro, Maryland-based author has worked with many people who have found themselves in similar situations. "I know what it means to forgive, forget, adjust, and release in order to move on," she explains. The book will teach readers to pray for the ability to recognize perpetrators' motives, to ask God to renew a right spirit within them, to dialogue with offenders to increase awareness of the painfulness of their actions, and to accept apologies and pray with the perpetrators immediately thereafter to remove the yoke of unforgiveness.
