Let It Go

I had heard of Chris Williams before. I don't remember when, but sometime in the last year, I watched this short video about him, his story, and the way he was able to let go of a burden that would have been unimaginable to try to carry on his own.



His story is one of tragedy and of forgiveness. After reading his book (I had trouble putting it down and managed to finish it in two days) I felt inspired, strengthened, encouraged, and at peace.

I guess I felt this way because what he went through as a result of a drunk driving accident (that took the lives of his wife, son, daughter, and unborn baby), is the kind of thing that I can't imagine facing. It seems impossible, unbearable...



As I read his memoir, I was encouraged to know that such a thing can be endured, and endured well. I was inspired by the way he forgave and treated the young man who caused the accident. I was strengthened to read about how the Savior and the atonement have worked in Chris' life as he has processed this 'trial' in his life. This brings me peace, to know that I can face difficult things, and that the Lord will help us to carry our burdens when we let Him.

It really is a beautiful story that I'm so glad Chris wrote down for us to read! I really enjoyed this one!

You can find Let It Go by Chris Williams (by Shadow Mountain Publishing) online and in stores in August!

Disclosure: I received this book through Deseret Book, from Shadow Mountain Publishing, free of charge for review purposes. I was not compensated in any other way for this post and the thoughts I'm sharing are my own.
