When Michelle LeClair was just a teenager, Scientology promised her a better life. She decided to postpone college and squash her attraction to women in favor of being a member of the church. But she couldn’t ignore her feelings forever. Michelle joins Katherine to speak about forgiving the institutions that shape us, and accepting yourself for who you are. You can get a copy of Katherine's book, The Gift of Forgiveness, wherever books are sold.Photo by Johanna BrinckmanThis week, the Gift of Forgiveness is sponsored by:Stamps.com - Visit Stamps.com, click on the microphone at the top and use code "Forgive" to start your trial!Daily Harvest - Get $25 off your first order at DailyHarvest.com, and use promo code "Forgive" at checkout.
