Marty Cole’s new book on forgiveness, love

News Image

Using his own experiences, author Marty Cole shares his journey of healing, forgiving, and loving after suffering trauma and illness in his book “My Amazing Transformation of Love, Courage, and Wisdom.”

At six years old, Cole entered military school, and from age six to eleven, he was verbally, physically, emotionally, mentally, and psychologically abused. Sometimes, he was beaten so badly, he bled. When Cole returned home at age fifteen, it was tough to adjust to home life after nine years away. He asked his father if he could get his own apartment and he obliged.

Finally, Cole started living, enjoying the sexual freedom of the late 1960s and early 1970s to the fullest. However, when he was sixteen and eighteen years of age, two different men raped him. Later, Cole was diagnosed with cancer. He sought counseling, and what he learned is that he needed to forgive – and that love heals all people, places, and things if one believes it will.

“I want to inspire, encourage, motivate, and empower other people with my love, courage, and wisdom,” said Cole. “Love is the only answer to everything.”

Whether one has suffered abuse, is trying to help someone who has, or is battling a serious disease or illness, the reader will be inspired by “My Amazing Transformation of Love, Courage, and Wisdom.”
