Can you imagine being in the 6th grade and learning that your mother has been murdered? Fast forward to when you are an adult. Can you imagine not only forging the killer but save his life? Then can you imaging inviting him on stage with you in front of hundreds of people? Today's guest did all of this and it is a true honour to get a chance to speak with him on the ManTalks Podcast. This week we talk to forgiveness expert Dean Smith who shares with us his journey to forgive, reconcile with and help save the life of the man that murdered his mom and how his story was made into an award-winning, internationally distributed documentary entitled Live to Forgive.
