Just hours away from being aborted A child of divorce Twice adopted Three different last names by the age of 16 Married the love of my life who - 48 years later - promised me, "Your life will be hell!" 4 times displaced from my home Emotionally abused A casualty in the war of divorce Left heavily in debt, with little resources and a bad credit rating Can anything good come from such a life?!? Absolutely, if God is in it. When I was 12, I met Jesus. That began a love affair that still continues to grow. Family interference started two years later with restrictions as to when and if I could go to church. During those disappointing, tough teen years, I found two Scriptures that became my solid foundation: 1 John 3 - reinforced my identity and revealed my characteristics as God's child. Sadly, so many people today live in spiritual poverty because they don't know who they are. But that's another book. Ephesians 4:11 - became my life verse. It taught me that contentment wasn't dependent on where I was or what I had. It gave me a mindset based on God. He was in control of my life. Wherever He placed me and whatever my circumstances were, I was there for a purpose - a purpose that would glorify Him and benefit me. So, what then is God's take on forgiveness? The answer is found in 2 Chronicles 7:14. When we meet His conditions, God promised to forgive our sins and heal our land. To me, 'land' means what farmers need to produce their crops. I'm not a farmer. What, then, is my land that God will heal? What are my crops? Land in the physical brings forth fruit. So it is in the spiritual. My very existence is the land that God heals. When I am forgiven, I am in a position to receive healing from the wounds caused by those sins - whether my sins or other people's. As that healing takes place, my capacity to produce spiritual fruit (Galatians 5:22, 23) increases. Unfortunately, people - like my husband - stop at the 'forgiveness' step. Never receiving God's healing leaves the soil of their lives uncultivated. Journey with me through these pages. Listen to a dialogue between God and his child as He shares insights of His actions. Visit with biblical characters and learn of their feelings, fears and thoughts on forgiveness. Discover the process to find out who exactly needs forgiving. Read God's letters explaining His point of view on 'loving our enemies.' Come. Take my hand as we walk through the field of Forgiveness, God-Style.

The book explores diplomatic style and its use as a means to provide analytical insight into a state's foreign policy, with a specific focus on South Korea.
Diplomatic style attracts scant attention from scholars. It is dismissed as irrelevant in the context of diplomacy's universalism; misconstrued as a component of foreign policy; alluded to perfunctorily amidst broader considerations of foreign policy; or wholly absented from discussions in which it should comprise an important component. In contrast to these views, practitioners maintain a faith-like confidence in diplomatic style. They assume it plays an important role in providing analytical insight, giving them advantage over scholars in the analysis of foreign policy. This book explores diplomatic style and its use as a means to provide analytical insight into foreign policy, using South Korea as a case study. It determines that style remains important to diplomatic practitioners, and provides analytical insight into a state's foreign policy by highlighting phenomena of policy relevance, which narrows the range of information an analyst must cover. The book demonstrates how South Korea's diplomatic style - which has a tendency towards emotionalism, and is affected by status, generational change, cosmopolitanism, and estrangement from international society - can be a guide to understanding South Korea's contemporary foreign policy.
This book will be of much interest to students of diplomacy studies, foreign policy, Asian politics, and International Relations in general.
