The Way of Letting Go by Wilma Derksen was a timely read. I feel like most of my life has been spent learning to let go. While I’ll never understand the pain of losing a family member to unspeakable tragedy, I understand what it means to lose someone I love.

Forgiveness is a way of life, and with this book, Wilma shows you how to start.

The time between letting go and learning to forgive is a never ending process. Forgiveness isn’t a one time thing and then you’re free; forgiveness is a lifetime of learning to love other people, love those who hurt you, and ultimately, yourself. 

This wasn’t my favorite book of the year so far, mainly because it was hard to connect with her tragedy and my heart break. It felt silly at times to compare the two. But regardless, I believe any one who struggles with forgiveness or is still in the process of learning to forgive can relate to this book.

Forgiveness is a moment by moment decision to set the offender free. 

If you’re in a season of life where forgiveness is difficult, this book will help.
