The Healing Power of Forgiveness with Corrine Stokoe
Have you ever felt like forgiveness is a much easier gift to give than to receive? It can be really hard to accept that we are forgiven and move on past our mistakes. But the Lord promises in the Doctrine and Covenants that he will remember our sins no more when we sincerely ask for forgiveness. So why is it so hard?
The Lord can take anything that feels broken beyond repair and make it whole.
If you feel like you’re alone in this feeling, just know that most of us feel the same way. In today's episode, Kathryn chats with Corrine Stokoe, creator of Mint Arrow, as she shares her vulnerable and personal story about forgiveness and the path that she has taken with her family to get to a place of peace.
