TRACY, Calif., May 11, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Jenean Stokes has completed her new book, "Forgiveness Wins": a gripping and moving true story of the author's abuse and exploitation, and the extraordinary kindness and empathy shown in return. Each story of abuse is followed by a stirring letter of forgiveness written to each of her abusers.
On the healing brought to her by each forgiveness letter, Stokes writes, "Throughout this book, I have chosen not to use the real names of my abusers. I would like to try and protect some sort of dignity for them. I have to believe that had they known the profound effect they had on my life, they would not have done what they did. However, with that said, I do believe that from my experiences, I am a much stronger person, and I hopefully will be able to help someone get through their journey as well.
"Through my personal journey, I've learned that writing letters is a helpful way of expressing feelings that would otherwise not be expressed. I have written several letters, and none have been mailed, sent, or read to the intended recipient. The letters were a way for me to yell, scream, cry, hate, and forgive. This process was very healing for me."
Published by Newman Springs Publishing, Jenean Stokes's inspirational tale is an incredible reminder that no matter what may happen in one's life, healing and growth are possible, and oftentimes must start with forgiveness. Despite this, Stokes's story emphasizes that forgiveness does not make something "okay," but rather helps those harmed to move on and become stronger.
Readers who wish to experience this poignant work can purchase "Forgiveness Wins" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iBooks Store, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble.
