A bright light entered the room as I lay dying.

Reid

“Mr. Henson, I don’t know what you’ve been doing, but I wish you’d tell me. Your blood is better than mine.

Kids in school mocked my club foot.

"I walked into the living room where she was and she said; “My chest is burning. My chest is burning.”

I asked my deceased father all my angry questions.

Reid

I did the empty chair procedure. I asked my father all these questions. Then I was to get up and sit in the chair and answer the questions. This didn’t make a bit of sense to me but I did it.

God’s love helped me overcome the death of twin grandsons.

Lillian

I just started squalling and laughing and carrying on like a crazy woman. It was like a bolt of lightening hit me in the head.

A prostitute for years when I met my husband.

Marilyn

My husband helped me a lot. He cried. He prayed. When I would go back out and do wrong again he would come looking for me. He would forgive me.

Ealum

In the third grade I didn’t know how to spell tadpole. For every letter I missed my dad would whip me across my back with a leather belt until I would bleed.

I kept dreaming about visiting Dad in prison.

As the dreams continued I began to focus on the issue of forgiveness concerning my dad.

Decided to kill my wife and her lover.
