Free worksheet downloads for practice

This is The Forgiving Practice Worksheet. It’s the basic, daily download sheet for those interested in forgiving as a daily practice. Even if practice does not make you perfect, we believe consistent daily forgiving practice will make you better and better at everything you do. If you do this practice enough you won’t have to reread this sheet every day. But rereading this sheet daily certainly won’t hurt; imagine the possible benefits if you do read it everyday.

There is unlimited forgiving philosophy to espouse. While the philosophy is extremely important, we’ve done our best to limit it on this worksheet. It is a worksheet after all and not a “white paper” or talking points.
