Family and the holidays can be awesome AND awful. Forgiveness is essential to creating great family relationships!
With the holidays approaching, I often talk with my clients about how to navigate family drama, family hurts, and family histories as they prepare for family gatherings.
As a mom of grown kids, I cringe when I think they may be dealing with some of these same struggles as they come home.

I hope and pray we become skilled and grace-filled when it comes to forgiveness.
