I’m taking my time and reading one chapter at a time. Very thoughtful
Absolutely loved this book...It came at just the right time...no coincidences!
I highly recommend it to all those who love and want to heal from a Mother
who did her best with the tools she had, but left deep scars along the way.
Forgiving and moving on with love, that's what this book is all about.
...someone whose kind writing truly reflects the reality, the confusion, and the pain of living with a mentally ill mother. To read a book that shows I'm not alone in such suffering has been very comforting. As many of us us who have lived with circumstances of this sort know, wounds can be left festering in the soul of a child and accompanied by an underlying feeling of hopelessness. Thankfully, this author's writing offers a concrete and prayerful path of hope than can lead to a life in which these very wounds offer an opening unto grace, for which I, personally, am very, very grateful.
Just as Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "..the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.".....possibly the arc of true forgiveness is long, but it bends toward healing and wholeness....if...we are open to and accepting of God's invitation. Marge Steinhage Fenelon's book, Forgiving Mother, helps us move forward on that lifelong journey, guiding us on the trajectory the Divine has in mind all along.
I am the brother of Marge Steinhage Fenelon and the eldest of four siblings. One might think my giving a positive review of Marge’s book “Forgiving Mother” would be biased in her favor. That would be purely coincidental. Marge Steinhage Fenelon has been a fervent Catholic since her early teen years. Her book honestly and vividly relates real-life experiences with our mother and demonstrates how Marge (and her three siblings) survived to become strong and responsible adults. I am elated and proud that Marge wrote this powerful book. The novenas that she appropriately included provide a welcomed affirmation in the belief and reliance on Mary for her support and prayers to our Lord Jesus Christ. I view the all-embracing good that comes from this publication to be an offer of healing and comfort to many millions who have had similar or worse family experiences. The shining light to follow is Mother Mary leading us to the Lord Himself. I hope I speak for many in saying, “Thank you very much for this book, Marge.”
