  1. Glenda Brunson says:

    Question 5 asks us for the author’s formula for forgiving ourselves? She suggested
    “try to remember that God loves you, that God loves you much more than He judges you. He tries to bring us to see our sins, yes, our failures, and things we do to put up barriers between ourselves and other people and Him. ” Pp 77-78.
