The Way of Letting Go:
One Woman's Walk toward Forgiveness
Few know how to survive the icy waters of grief better than Wilma Derksen. On one random Friday - November 30, 1984 - her thirteen-year-old daughter, Candace, did not return home from school. Seven weeks later, after Winnipeg's most comprehensive missing-person's search, Candace's body was found in a shed. Bound at her hands and feet. Left to die in the plunging temperatures of that winter's first extreme cold front.
Wilma's world collapsed. Everything hung in the balance - her marriage, her sanity, even her faith in a just God. It was only when she stopped hiding her grief in disbelief and darkness and bravely faced the unfathomable experience that she began to heal. Through fifteen "Letting Go" statements - including Letting Go of the Old Me, Letting Go of Guilt, and Letting Go of My Need to Know - Wilma overcame with God her broken heart, replaced confusion with connection, and drove out fear with forgiveness.
In these pages, she shows you how you can do the same. You can live a hope-filled life. You can be filled with love and forgiveness, regardless of your circumstances.
These fifteen hard-won "Letting Go" principles will help you overcome your smallest and largest losses, and Wilma's real-life advice will enable you to break free of your pain to live a life of true joy.
