Publisher's Description

Jackie Kendall's childhood was a horror story of abuse. A counselor deemed her family "one of the top-ten most dysfunctional in America." Family members have dealt with this trauma in different ways: Two siblings committed suicide. Some siblings ran wild. When Jackie decided that she wanted to break the mold and be a healthy, loving woman, to forgive or not to forgive was not a question. Simply put: one can't love freely without the developed skill of forgiving freely. In FREE YOURSELF TO LOVE, Jackie shares her own story and struggle to learn this vital life skill. She also reveals the reasons for--and results of --refusing to forgive. In passionate, empathetic prose, Jackie urges her readers to exchange free-floating bitterness for the freedom to love and be loved.

Author Bio

Jackie Kendall has been involved with ministry for twenty-five years, working as teacher, counselor, conference speaker, and author. Jackie works with several athletic teams, including the Atlanta Braves and Pro Athletes Outreach (which is involved with professional baseball teams and the NFL). She is also the president of Power to Grow Ministries and the author or coauthor of several books.


"Free Yourself to Love unlocks the mystery of true forgiveness. Jackie Kendall masterfully explains that forgiveness is not an automatic 'knee-jerk' response we need to offer as Christians but a process that involves acknowledgment of the hurt inflicted by the offense and a purposeful choice to quit being a hostage to shame, to the memories of the past, and to the incubation of anger. The principles in this book will set you free! I highly recommend it!" --Carol Kent, speaker and author of When I Lay My Isaac Down and A New Kind of Normal

"Jackie has more wisdom for us on the subject of love. She thoughtfully takes the reader on a journey deep into the rich topic of forgiveness and its implications for the human heart. I recommend this book for anyone longing for release from resentment and desiring the freedom to love." --Kristin Armstrong, author of Happily Ever After and Work in Progress

"When I think of what I have learned from the message of biblical forgiveness I heard from Jackie Kendall, I think of going from being a prisoner in the jail of bitterness to being a free citizen in the country of grace. Jackie's message has been instrumental in my life many times. Forgiveness is not a suggestion, it is a command, and I know personally why God desires for us to forgive, forgive, forgive." --Jon Kitna, NFL quarterback

    This primer on forgiveness gives an in-depth insight on how to do the job. The author breaks down the ability to forgive as per the biblical command to forgive 7 times 70. She lists the six most commonly used excuses for not forgiving: 1. The offense was too great. 2. The memories of the offense are so vivid. 3. The offense was repeated. 4. You want to make the person pay for the offense. 5. You are too angry to even consider forgiving this person. 6. The offender didn't say, "I am sorry." Addressing each excuse, the author points out that forgiving is a gift, a choice that we must make to experience the freedom to love. She also points out that reconciliation does not necessarily go hand-in-hand with forgiveness. A list follows each chapter that help "Make It Personal." I feel that most folks will find this book helpful.

    We all have someone who we are holding a grudge against, but how do we let go? Jackie Kendall is embracing the subject of forgiving those unforgiveable in your life. NOT forgiving someone is a sin; she explains how and why this is so, and why if you want to move on and have loving relationships you need to conquer that. I thought this book was great. We all have baggage from our pasts that really threaten our happiness in the future. I know I had feelings of unforgiveness against my ex-husband. This really opened my eyes to how to find forgiveness towards him and how that could open up my future. Whether youre angry at an abusive husband or parent, a friend who said the wrong thing, people in your office, or even your children Jackie helps you understand why you need to forgive them, and how to do it. The book also examines the artificial forgiveness we all seem to practice on a daily basis. Have you ever told little white lie excusing peoples actions to their faces and then silently stew about the offense. This book is a must read for just about everyone. Believe me, it will shine a bit of light in places you didnt know you had to work on!
