About

1dm32634_ink_liThis website & blog is a safe space for all of us to share our stories on forgiveness.  It comes out of my own journey learning how to love myself and what works to truly help me forgive … fully.

I’ve struggled with an eating disorder since puberty and on a deeper level, battled with self-criticism and even self-hatred.  My mom was murdered in my 30s.  And through all of this, somewhere deep inside is a still voice that says, “I am love.”

I am committed to knowing this completely and have been practicing and sharing about forgiveness for many years.  I have a Masters in Spiritual Psychology from the University of Santa Monica and studied public policy at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.  I also completed a Doctorate program in Spiritual Science, where I did a Practical Treatise on self-forgiveness and living in our hearts.  I’m grateful for the awareness of this decision to love moment to moment, and to support others in opening to their compassion and acceptance.

Now, I am a Professional Forgiveness Coach and owner of this amazing blog, Forgiving Connects. 🙂 Through personalized coaching, I work with clients both individually and in groups to make peace with themselves and create more of what they want in their lives.  A key in our work together is the powerful practice of Self-forgiveness, or freeing ourselves from the judgments we make inwardly.   One of my biggest projects is #ForgivingFridays, a blog and worldwide social media campaign for people to let go of judgments, heal, and connect in love.

I’d love for you to share your stories too.  Please contribute to Forgiving Fridays! Feel free to explore a Forgiving Coaching Session or join our Forgiving Group on Facebook!  Watch a Forgiving Fours video! Thank you and many blessings to you on your own path of forgiving.

With Great Love,

Debbie Roth<3

  1. Wow Debbie I am amazed to come here again, and to watch your Video was overwhelming, the joy you express from the deeper realms of your heart is just awesome. I am delighted. I have also been living a life forgiving people all through who have come my way and have hurt.
    Yes its no way, to prolong it, into our hearts and feelings, just forget and go away, should be the mantra. You may see that, as you read some of my older posts. If you want I shall give you the links of those posts for your perusal.
    So, forgiving connects, therefore we are here connected.
    With Great Love to YOU too.

    1. Oh Lauren, thank you! I’m so glad that you found my blog too. ❤ I just read your About page, and it's beautiful. You are so lucky to have Jeremiah and he, you.

      Please be in touch anytime. I would love to hear more about your experience with forgiveness. My email is weloveyou@forgivingconnects.com. (I also have other resources on forgiveness, such as a safe forum to share on Facebook, etc….. if that is of interest to you.)

      Blessings to you and your husband, and welcome to my blog. Peace, Debbie

      1. I absolutely will be in touch! Forgiveness is something I really really struggle with. Not only forgiving others, but forgiving myself as well. Thank you so much, you are too sweet! I truly cherish Jeremiah and can’t believe he’s really mine sometimes. 🙂

    1. Thank you Ana so much for sharing this chapter! I really appreciate how you look for gratitude in your heart as a key to forgive. My Spiritual Teacher John-Roger has said something like, If you want to know more of the Soul, look through the eyes and hear through the ears of gratitude. ❤

      Sending you much love. Glad you are present on my blog!!! Many blessings, Debbie
