Episode 012: The Positive Power of Forgiveness & The Toxicity of Complaints
Episode 012: Show Notes
Today’s episode is jump started by the topic of forgiveness, followed by messages of Christianity, and whole-hearted truth. After experiencing excessive amounts of judgement and complaining about others, Amberlin tried to find a resource to help remove the toxicity from her life. From those actions, The Complainer’s Journal was born.
Now, Amberlin is working on creating The Workbook to The Complainer’s Journal. Amberlin believes that pen to paper action creates more results than just reading about techniques.
What I love about Amberlin’s main work is that although they both revolve around grace, compassion, dignity, and forgiveness, the two pieces focus on separate aspects of complaints.
Have more issue with people and relations - pick up the Complainer’s Journal.
Having a ton of issues around situations, events in your life, or just general ruts? Then pick up The Complainer’s Journal Workbook!
In the second half of the interview, Amberlin and I talk about how we’re so quick to put shameful titles upon ourselves while positive attributes are much harder to accept. Funny how that works, isn’t it?
Then we dive into the last part of our conversation which left me with an ear to ear smile. Amberlin talks about how she writes books with her son and how you can integrate your children and your passion more! You’re totally going to want to hear this part of the episode because, damn, does it leave you with a full heart and a big cheesy grin!

Today's Guest: Amberlin Harrison
I have seen the meme quoting Richard Bach, “A professional writer, is an amateur who never quit.” That sums me up. I went to school to teach children how to write. I earned a Bachelors of Science in Middle Grades Education in 2010. I taught for a short while before my children were born. Now I raise them and write on the side. My hopes are that my example teaches them about the priorities and passions that make life precious and exciting. My son and wrote several children's books together and plan on making more. I am the author of "The Complainer's Journal".
