Wasn't that Sister Sledge that sang that song? Now, I am claiming it as my theme song as I prepare to listen to my first radio interview, "Forgiveness is the Path" hosted by Justine Willis Toms, Program Manager at New Dimensions Radio.
It will air beginning Wednesday, May 2nd in the afternoon and will be listed on their front page for two weeks where you may tune-in for “free” streaming listening. The interview can be downloaded at any time for $1.99, and with the download you will be able to make your own CD copies, play it on MP3’s and other listening devices, or listen to it on your computer. Later in the month a free download will be available here on my website.
Our dialogue explores many topics: Growing up with expectations as the preacher’s daughter, the responsibility of being the oldest, the path to forgiveness, how to start a circle, the difference between circle and therapy and much more. Justine inquires about the backstory of writing my book, how my family responded to my telling “family secrets” and my experience of circle as I struggled to find peace within myself.
“My first discovery of healing was provided by sitting in a women's circle. I had an opportunity to look at myself through the eyes of these women with such love and with no judgment. It was unbelievable to me…. the fire that was ignited in the center that kept burning in me as I returned home…it created transformation and actually transmutation in me. I became a different person. For the first time, I was able to face myself in a way with deep love."
I have heard from many of you about how my book has touched you. Those words are music to my ears. I am grateful and thank you ALL for the support in getting the word out about “Coming To Forgiveness.”
