Julie was raised with a vilolent, alcoholic step-father, who regularly abused her. She developed walls to anyone in authority felt shame and totally rejected a God who would allow this. When she went to live with her grandmother a friend introduced her to Jesus' unconditional love.
Listen to her story to hear how forgiveness totally set her free. Although difficult, she says chose to forgive. It is the only way to let go of bitterness so it doesn't overwhelm and control you. God has a good plan for your life.
