Bitter Truth: My Story of Bitterness, Grace, and Repentance by Linda R. Graf

Why did I write a book about bitterness? Because it almost got me. ~ Linda Graf

Bittter Truth: My Story of Bitterness, Grace and Repentance – available in paperback and Kindle at

This book is for everyone who’s been sinned against…


This first-time author tells her personal story of being caught in the trap of bitterness with disastrous consequences in her personal and professional lives. Through the intervention of godly friends, she came to an understanding of the sin in her life and through the mighty power of God she was able to break free.

Linda describes her journey and then defines bitterness and prescribes the practical remedy to overcome it.  There are many books on similar subjects such as forgiveness, but none contain the first-hand experience that Linda brings. She knows what it is like to possess an angry, unforgiving heart and speaks honestly to help and encourage others.

This is a compelling tale of the ramifications of sin in a Christian’s life. For those who find themselves caught up in this same web of deceit, Linda directs them to freedom and joy in Christ.

“But here is the good news—Jesus does help. He does bring truth and transformation. So if you see any of these beliefs in yourself, please hear me when I say there is hope for you no matter your background or personality or past sins.” —Linda R. Graf

What others are saying:

At the core of most people’s problems is resentment and lack of forgiveness. Linda clearly spells out the personal devastation of carrying such bitterness. The richness of the book is in her practical and clear explanations of what bitterness is and what God says about it. Linda encourages the reader on how to respond when living life and loving people are hard. You, like Linda, will be transformed if you put into practice the things you learn in this book.

I love a good redemption story! Linda draws us in with her transparency and then offers solid biblical instruction and practical insights gleaned from her own journey to freedom. I was taught, encouraged, and inspired by God’s transforming power. Kelly Hall ~ Author, Conference Speaker
