"Forgiveness is probably the key to the healing in my journey," she says." If we were told that by forgiving that we would reap so many benefits for ourselves, that making the choice to forgive would allow us to move forward in life without anger, then I think that we would be much more likely to do it."
She recently had a speaking engagement in Milford. Her next speaking engagements are in Germany and France, and she vows to keep going from there.
Lewis has also established the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Foundation.
