Second Chance Redemption + The Way Back Release {Giveaway}

Growing up, I never realized the power of second chances. I always thought that it would be foolish to give someone a second chances. However, as I’ve gotten older I have realized just how important second chances can be.

I was separated from my family as a child due to some unfortunate circumstances. I quickly grew to resent my family because I felt neglected, alone, and confused. When I turned 18 years old I decided it was time to reconnect and give things another try. It wasn’t an easy road to travel and wasn’t always pleasant. I struggled and battled with internal feelings that I didn’t know how to express.

It took a long time and some patience, but relationships were repaired and I learned to forgive those that I felt wronged me. Rebuilding relationships in my family brought us closer and helped me learn to express myself in a positive manner.

Now that we’ve been reconnected for over 10 years, I regret that it took so long to let go and forgive. I understand that everyone deserves a second chance and that nobody is perfect. The relationships that I’ve rebuilt over the last 10 years have become some of the most important relationships in my life. I can’t imagine going back to the anger and resentment that I felt. I wouldn’t have my best friend if I didn’t learn how to give someone a second chance. At the same time, learning to forgive and facing the pain of my past has allowed me to give myself a second chance as well. I’m a better person for learning to let go and forgive. I’m a better wife, mom, sister, and daughter for offering others a second chance.

Speaking of second chances, there’s a hot new film about to release on March 6, 2020 that will move you. It’s so wonderful to see such an inspiring film in theaters right now. THE WAY BACK is an honest representation of how we all struggle and face set-backs in life, and emphasizes that the way back is never too far away.


Jack Cunningham (Ben Affleck) once had a life filled with promise. In high school, he was a basketball phenom with a full university scholarship, when suddenly, for reasons unknown, he walked away from the game, forfeiting his future. Now years later, Jack is spiraling down, triggered by an unspeakable loss, and drowning in the alcoholism that cost him his marriage and any hope for a better life. When he is asked to coach the basketball team at his alma mater, which has fallen far since his glory days, he reluctantly accepts, surprising no one more than himself. As the boys start to come together as a team and win, Jack may have finally found a reason to confront the demons that have derailed him. But will it be enough to fill the void, heal the deep wounds of his past, and set him on the road to redemption?
