The Power of Forgiveness

I am so pleased to introduce to my blog readers a book that has been written by a dear friend. This Christian fiction book is entitled “Journey to Jordan” by Donna Deloney. This is her first novel, and I tell you... she has done a great job with it. I was fortunate to have read the rough drafts of the first chapters years ago when we worked together in Chicago. To see it finally completed and on the bookshelves is a great joy. If you are looking for a good Christian fiction book to read, I highly recommend this one.

This book tells of a moving story about forgiveness and faith in God. Forgiveness is something that we all struggle with from time to time, however, the bible tells us: “For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” (Matthew 6:14-15) Holding on to painful memories, past indiscretions and hurtful experiences not only rob us of our joy, but of our closeness to God. Forgiving others of past wrongdoings and sometimes even forgiving ourselves, free us to have a more intimate relationship with our Heavenly Father.

Congratulations Donna on your accomplishment with this book and thank you for sharing a life lesson on the power of forgiveness.

May your joy abound.

“Journey to Jordan” can be ordered through Amazon.com or through the publisher at HollyGrovePublishing.com.


  1. Being able to foregive is a privilage.

  2. Donna is certainly blessed to have friends like you. Your brief synopsis of the book inspires us all to pick up a copy. Thanks for the recommendation.
