Emily Hooks is an author, speaker and founder of the Forgiveness Academy™. Her book, The Power of Forgiveness: A Guide to Healing and Wholeness is a comprehensive guide to forgiveness as a healing practice. Emily speaks on forgiveness and her personal journey at conferences, churches, and other events. She also facilitates workshops and provides group training in person and online. To date, Emily has worked with over a thousand individuals and groups, guiding them through the healing practice of forgiveness and helping them realize their potential with the belief that as we heal, the world heals.
If you’ve ever struggled with forgiving someone, then you will truly appreciate my conversation with Emily. She takes time to explain why forgiveness is an act of self-empowerment and an internal process that has nothing to do with the person you are forgiving.
She walks you through the steps to forgive someone and she even talks about how we can begin to forgive ourselves when we make mistakes as parents.
This is an enlightening conversation that will help you understand the power of forgiveness and lead you down the path of forgiving even when it feels impossible.
