Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. (Ephesians 4:32 ESV)
THE GRACE TO FORGIVE
Just after 10 a.m. CDT on Sunday, Evangelist Brenda Henderson wasted little time taking to her social page, where she staged a rather spiritually-empowering post that was accompanied by images of her four books.
Said Henderson on her Facebook timeline before her more than 400 followers: So Grateful for the things He has done. So grateful for the victories we have won. I could go on and on about your works, but flowing from my heart is GRATEFULNESS!
To grasp a thorough understanding of why Henderson deemed it essential to share before the masses the goodness of Jesus and all He’s done for her, look no further than the favor He has bestowed upon her life, particularly as a thriving, progressive author.
Much to her delight, in fact, Henderson has become the beneficiary of a slew of rave reviews for Mama Ain’t Always Right: A Journey To Forgiveness, her featured written work that made its ceremonious debut on December 9, 2020.

During a weekend interview, Henderson, a San Antonio-based writer, said she had become greatly empowered to compose her latest book after having attended what is known as the Know Your Worth Women’s Conference she hosted in 2018.
“The conference emphasized the importance of women knowing their worth to God and it was based on Psalms 139:14,” Henderson explained. “God clearly showed me that my worth book was a reflection of my own feelings of worthlessness stemming from my childhood. I needed to know where that came from. It came from mama.”
A remarkably informative book that is comprised of 167 pages in length, Henderson’s Mama Ain’t Always Right: A Journey To Forgiveness depicts the life of Bea Faye, who endures an emotionally and physically abusive childhood at the hands of her adoptive mother, Madelene Faye, as mentioned in a detailed synopsis of this book at Amazon.com.
In Henderson’s book, she discovers Bea is certain that the reason for her insecurities and fear are solely the fault of her mother. As the story unwinds with incidents that have had a negative impact on Bea’s life, she must learn how to forgive which, according to his Christian-based writer, is a long-range task.
Consequently, Henderson appropriately raises rather two thought-provoking questions.
“Will she be able to complete it? Would you be able to achieve such an undertaking after such extended abuse?” she asked. “Settle down and discover the outcome with the awe and wonder of the power of forgiveness.”
Widely regarded as a best-selling author of four Christian fiction books to date, Henderson doesn’t shy away from the notion that her latest book is designed to address the one thing from which God admonishes us to abstain: forgiveness.
“For most of my life, I’d been struggling with unforgiveness as far as forgiving my adoptive mother for the fear and insecurities she instilled in me,” Henderson said. “I wrote my first book at 60 years old on another subject matter to avoid writing this one. That was because I was still struggling with unforgiveness.”
According to Henderson, when Bea Faye’s story begins, she is in her present state, she discloses to her readers.
“She chooses to go back to her childhood to try and discover why she becomes agitated with her spouse concerning an incident that happened to her son at school,” Henderson explained. “Revelation sets in and she takes the reader all the way back to the beginning. The divine purpose of forgiveness is found in the end.”
As for the divine message she aspires to send to her reading audience, Henderson emphasized, among other things, that her featured written work is accompanied in large part by Luke 6:37, which reads: Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven (ESV).
Added Henderson: “Forgive and you will be forgiven. Although this book is in the category of Christian fiction — as are all my other books — it is loosely based on my own childhood. Most of us were taught in the era of which I grew up in that, ‘Mama was always right.’ Meaning that regardless of what you may have heard or thought, your mother was never wrong.
“She was perfect, and you respected that perfection. However, when you build a relationship with God and His Word, you find out the truth that no one is perfect, only He is. Therefore, it is draining and useless to spend most of your life like I did, blaming all the negative energy you’ve stored up over the years on one individual. You must forgive them. You must if you intend to see Jesus.”
Besides Mama Ain’t Always Right: A Journey To Forgiveness, Henderson authored the following books:
- Preying Men: The Art of Christian Deception, released in 2015
- Preying Men: The Art of Christian: (Deception 2) Facing Cain, released in 2017 and,
- My Worth Book, released in 2018
