Hi – I’m Linda Graf. I wrote a book about my journey to freedom and abundant life, it’s called Bitter Truth: My Story of Bitterness, Grace and Repentance. Why? Because I was trapped in anger, self-pity and bitterness for years and didn’t know why or what to do about it. If you have similar struggles, I want to encourage you.  There is hope, healing and freedom to be found in Jesus.  Sign up to receive regular updates and my Forgiveness Cheat Sheet: 6 Things to Remember When You Can’t Get Past The Hurt.
