How I Made Peace with my Sister's Killer (full hour)
Description: Jeanne Bishop’s story begins with tragedy: her sister, brother-in-law and their unborn child were brutally murdered in their home. In her dying moments, Jeanne’s sister wrote ‘love you’ in her own blood. A local teen was arrested and convicted for the murders. Jeanne decided to forgive him and move on, and even became a strong opponent of capital punishment. She refused to let herself think about her sister’s killer and thought forgiveness was enough...until she realized she also need to confront him and reconcile. Jeanne joins us today with her story about moving beyond mere forgiveness to the deeper waters of redemption and grace.
