Look beyond the hurt and use the power of forgiveness to move forward. Forgiveness is one of the best tools we have at our disposal to create a better life for ourselves. Leave that baggage behind as you put the past in the past— where it belongs! Forgiveness is an amazing tool—it can transform your life in just one second if you decide that you want to use its power. There’s a reason we refer to anger, resentment, and disappointment as “baggage.” We carry it everywhere we go. We’d like nothing more than to drop it on the side of the road and forget about it. But how do we do that? How do we process the past and then leave it behind? These 101 revealing true stories show you how. Learn how to manage your hurt with or without an apology and focus on what’s really important. Read about marriages being strengthened, families getting back together, grown children coming to understand their parents, and people overcoming the worst transgressions—even crimes. These men and women walked forward light and free, and you can, too—onto the bright, warm, welcoming road ahead. And, because no one’s perfect, you’ll also learn how to apologize if you’re the one in the wrong... and how to use the power of self-forgiveness to find peace and happiness.

Amy Newmark shares what she’s learned from editing and writing more than 100 Chicken Soup for the Soul books. This irreverent and insightful look at the human experience provides a road map to a happy, productive life. Recovering cynic Amy Newmark was a crusader for truth on Wall Street, exposing companies that were defrauding investors, but the main emotions she wrote about were fear and greed. But now she and her family own Chicken Soup for the Soul and her life is very different. Amy’s journey from Wall Street to Main Street has changed her in ways she never anticipated. Now, as author and editor-in-chief of Chicken Soup for the Soul, she covers the whole range of human emotions and finds herself a much more positive and productive person. Still a maverick with an irreverent sense of humor and a penchant for self-deprecating stories about herself and her family, she also synthesizes everything she has learned from reading and editing tens of thousands of Chicken Soup for the Soul stories, and presents her findings to readers. A keen observer on parenting, love and marriage, positive thinking, working, and relationships, she shares her wisdom, her humor, and her advice in this wide-ranging book, filled with real-life stories and no nonsense, practical tips that readers can actually implement to improve their own lives.

(“Pretty Lady”) Courtney, in tears and praying in the back seat of her mother’s car after it had stalled, watches the impossible as the gas gauge needle suddenly begins moving above E. (“Fueled by Faith”) Terrie, a cash-strapped newlywed who skips a weekly milk purchase only to marvel at how long their one gallon lasts. (“The Milk Jug”) Martha, who after 50 years still feels the flood of God’s love for her nine-year-old self, who had asked Him for healing and then looked in the mirror.
