Did you know that there is another death by suicide every 40 seconds? Are you thinking about committing suicide? Or do you know someone who is? Don’t you want to know what happens before you end your life? Making frequent guest appearances on television as “The Hope Doctor,” Dr. Joyce Brown knows something about suicide because she’s been suicidal before. She also has experience with suicide in her family, including her father and sister and four cousins.

"Life is worth living, and loving, even with all of its challenges!"

How to Forgive
and Feel Forgiven

One of the key lessons Dr. Joyce learned from her dramatic, life-changing near-death experience is the vital importance of forgiving ourselves and others. As she writes in her her most recent book, Near Death Survivor Conquers ALS, Depression, Grief, Suicide and More: A Book of Hope, "I saw how important it is to just let go, forgive, be quiet, and go on. The relationship is more important than who is right." In this program, Dr. Joyce reveals the tremendous value of forgiveness and why we need to be forgiving, as it says in the Lord’s Prayer, “Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive others.” This is an eternal truth, regardless of anyone’s religious beliefs, and, "just as we want to be forgiven, we must forgive and be tolerant of others."
