Many people go through life struggling through the deep pain of a broken relationship with a parent. Leslie Leyland Fields, author of "Forgiving Our Fathers and Mothers," shares about her challenging childhood growing up with a frequently absent and abusive father and how God worked through her heart and life to forgive her father. She compares our stories to the biblical narrative of Jonah and how running from our pain often leads to more sin and brokenness. She shares the heart of forgiveness, and how to have love and mercy towards our parents, even when that love and mercy is not reciprocated.
