Jun 18, 2024

Have you experienced trauma at the hands of others? Are you having a hard time healing and finding forgiveness? In this episode, Allie Marie Smith and guest Susannah Griffith discuss the topic of forgiving after trauma. They explore the intersection of Biblical forgiveness and trauma. They discuss the common ways girls and women have been traumatized, and the harmful ways forgiveness has been weaponized. They also discuss the importance of acknowledging and processing anger, the concept of trauma-informed forgiveness, and practical steps for healing and biblical forgiveness. The conversation emphasizes the importance of putting the survivor first and allowing them to heal at their own pace. If you have experienced trauma we hope this conversation will help you heal and move forward.
