A forgiving heart revealed

I've been privileged to know Kitty Chappell for twenty years and have seen for myself the inner joy that radiates from her in every circumstance. Her forgiveness of a sinful father is a holy and genuine thing. To read her book and be reminded of the horrifying experiences that could have shaped a life of bitterness, but didn't, is an inspiration to me. Her words have made me examine my own life and the relationships I've had where forgiveness is overdue. Thank you, Kitty, for your open heart and your generosity in sharing your wounds and your healing with us.

Best inspirational book you'll find on "how to forgive".

Many, many people are going through life harboring deep hurts that stand in the way of their happiness. They want to forgive and know they should, but just don't know how. This is the story of an amazing woman who learned how to do it, and you won't believe what and who she had to forgive, but she did it!!! She shares it all with you, and it will leave you awestruck. I promise you that you won't be able to put this book down. You will want to share it with others who are hurting.

Wonderful, Inspiring, and Helpful!!!

"Sins of a Father" is an incredible book. Kitty Chappell has the rare sensitivity to share the horrors of her childhood without sensationalism and with restraint, telling just enough to help us understand her message. The message...this is what sets her story apart from so many other books dealing with childhood abuse. This is the story of how Kitty, and how any of us, can rise above difficult circumstances. It is not just about "enduring" and "making it through" our problems. It is about what comes next. How do we restore wholeness, joy, love, and mercy to our spirits? How do we truly forgive those who hurt us? My husband and I read this book just as another family dispute with our parents erupted, and Kitty's words rang true in every respect. We underlined and discussed each of her ideas as we read, applying them to our own situation. After twenty years mired in family conflict, she gave us concrete, positive, and loving ways to move forward. So many books offer suggestions on conflict and forgiveness, but the "modern" way seems to center on finding out who to blame for our pain. Too many books seem to encourage forgiveness in a general way, but then reinforce how badly we've been treated and how right we are to be angry. "Hold onto the hurt, but forgive them anyway, even if they don't deserve it." Kitty shows a better way. And she gives concrete I-can-do-these suggestions that we can apply right now. Her suggestions are working for us. Anyone who struggles with difficult people and with a difficult past can learn much from her wisdom, her experience, and her honesty. This book is wonderful!

Sins of a Father

I happened upon this book while looking for something to encourage a friend. I read it with the expectation of sharing it with her and hoping that the message would adress issues in a recent discussion. Not only did this book address the need to forgive, but it also nailed the mechanics of how to forgive in spite of the emotions that so often cloud our view. It is the thing that is missing in most books that address this topic. Yes we know we need to forgive, but how do you do that? I found answers to questions of my own.My heart went out to Kitty as I read her story, and I was pleased by the process through which she identified the right choices and implemented them. I pray that this book will make it into the hands of those who are ready to put the past behind them and move into a productive and positive life. If you are tired of looking back, while trying to move forward, buy and read this book. Thank you Mrs. Chappell!

Life-changing book on HOW to actually forgive

I have had the honor of attending a seminar in which Mrs. Kitty Chappell spoke and shared her story. Kitty has gone through some of the most stressful times I have heard of and has learned how, with God's help, to go on with her life and not be one of the "damaged" people we see all around us. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is hurting and trying to get on with their life. God Bless you, Kitty.Elaine Johnson
