If you grew up Italian – or wish you had – you’ll love this quirky video where I share stories about my mom’s wooden spoon, why I’m afraid of the police and the special button I wore to church

As a little boy, James was known as Jimmy. Jimmy had a dog – a beagle – named Snoopy. He played with his dog everyday. His best friend (Jimmy’s, not Snoopy’s) lived next door…Manny was his name. Jimmy and Manny would play outside in the large backyard with Snoopy. When it was time to eat a snack or lunch, the boys could be found together in either of their mom’s kitchens eating something delicious.

At the age of five, near the end of Kindergarten, Jimmy had some tragic things happen to him. As Jimmy became James and understood more of what happened, a rage began to ignite within him. A rage that grew into murderous thoughts by the time he was 16.

At the age of 16, James began his forgiveness journey. It wasn’t easy. It’s still not over. James realized that un-forgiveness was holding HIM back…holding him back spiritually, emotionally, financially. If he was to live in fullness of life, he HAD to Forgive & Live. If he wanted success in relationships, he HAD to Forgive & Live.

At the age of 30, James began to share this Forgive & Live message to audiences all over the United States. He is now a successful husband, father, grandfather, teacher, musician and speaker thanks to a Forgive & Live approach to life. James wants to see everyone start his own Forgive & Live journey.
