Professional counselor and college educator, Jim Velez, guides you through the emotional, cognitive and relational aspects of the forgiveness process.
The Bridge of Reconciliation
One man's story--Joseph. How he could not reconcile until there was evidence of ownership and a change of heart.
When Someone Hurts You
Understanding that forgiveness and trust are two separate things. Learning to release the hurt if the offending party has no interest in asking for forgiveness. Remember, forgiveness is a solo, reconciliation is a duet.
When You Hurt Someone
We are always certain people will hurt us, but what do you do to help mend a relationship if YOU are the one who did the offense?
What is forgiveness?
There are so many misconceptions over this word. This help clarify what forgiveness actually is in a balanced way.
Decide your Identity
This helps us look at who we are INDEPENDENT of what has been done to us. Am you going to let what happened to you become the defining moment of my life?
Mourn Your Loss
Grief and mourning are different. Mourning opens a positive door to positive change to begin the healing process. This clarifies the differences between grieving and mourning--critical to moving forward.
Jim Velez takes the complex emotions of bitterness and betrayal, and provides practical, easy to understand tools for you to navigate this journey of forgiveness and reconciliation.
