Dr. Evelyn Ogletree’s new book, A Day With My Father - Choosing The Path To Forgive!, ($14.99, paperback, 9781498476843; $7.99, e-book, 9781498478625) is an emotional true story about a beautiful little girl who grew up estranged from her father and met the challenges of growing up with a single mother. Later at the age of fifty, her father elected to come back into her life causing her to contemplate whether to accept or reject him. Does she open the door of her heart again and let him in or should she keep the door closed and put a dead bolt lock on it forever? She chose to open the door and let her father in – a powerful story of love and forgiveness that no reader will soon forget.

This book encourages every reader to revisit their childhood and discover the secret to who they are and why they function as they do. As Dr. Ogletree experienced, the visit will reveal one’s true self-portrait and uncover the thoughts that remain from their childhood, which often manifest in undesired behavior. Anyone who has had their heart broken by someone they love and trust needs to read this book. It will bring them peace and give them the power to reconcile that relationship.

“My purpose and goal for writing this book is to help save families and relationships; marriages, parent/child relationships, siblings, relatives, and friendships,” states the author. “My second goal is to bring forgiveness and restoration to broken relationships, redirect marriages to God’s original intent and hinder the divorce epidemic that has overtaken Christendom. I want fathers to see what happens when they abandon their children. I want spouses to see what their mate goes through when there is a betrayal. My utmost desire for this book is to showcase God’s Glory that comes when you choose to forgive!”

Here’s what others are saying about this outstanding book:

“It is amazing how much I can relate to Lady O’s story regarding her upbringing and the events that helped shape her into a strong, powerful woman. Having a psychology and spiritual counseling background, I know all too well that in order for many people to go forward in life, they must often times go back and revisit their past. This book should help them to do just that.” – Lady Narlene McLaughlin, Co-Founder and Chief Administrator, The Potter’s House International Ministries, Jacksonville, FL

“Dr. Evelyn Ogletree’s book, A Day with My Father, brings the reader face to face with one of our greatest modern societal needs; deep sub-surface hidden debilitating ‘Unforgiveness’ and how she learned to deal with it as a model for how we can address it. Her words will inspire you to change the way you see and deal with virtually every conflict in your life.” – Archbishop Dr. Sterling Lands II, Sr. Pastor, Greater Calvary Bible Church and Presiding Prelate of the Family Life International Fellowship
