Not only did Melanie Washington visit in prison the gang-banger who killed her son, she hugged him and called him her son. Not many Christians exude such supreme grace. Not many have undergone as severe trials either. Since overcoming drugs, alcohol and childhood abuse herself, Melanie sponsored safe houses for troubled teens who were too hard to handle in the foster care system. She has spoken to myriad inmates, reducing hardened felons to tears. A book about my Journey to know Jesus. As a Memoir of that journey from Pain to Forgiving. All who have wronged me by taking the lives of my loved ones brutally hurt me and my family. It took me 20 years to write this book through those tears.
