Alive Celebrates release of Now You See Me


Colorado Springs, CO, April 15, 2014—Alive Communications is celebrating the release of Now You See Me: How I Forgave the Unforgivable by Kathy Sanders, (FaithWords/Hachette Book Group, April 2014). For the first time, Sanders recounts her remarkable, arduous journey of losing her two beloved grandsons in the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995—the greatest act of domestic terrorism at the time—and her resolve to uncover the truth behind the horrific events.

In her quest to make sense of the tragedy, Sanders prays for guidance and sets out to forgive her enemies. As a result, she cultivates a lasting relationship with Terry Nichols.

As Sanders writes in Now You See Me, “Unforgiveness causes people to suffer. It’s a decision you make that gradually robs you of your joy and a meaningful life. I found that hating your enemy is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.”

Readers will be inspired by one grandmother’s determination to find a way to reconcile the loss of her two grandbabies and find a way to live again. Her decision to forgive upset some families yet in the process amazed others with her humility.

“For lack of a better word,” writes Sanders, “my ‘crusade’ had begun with my search for information about the bombing—and hopefully, a bit of emotional closure. My quest had blossomed when God led me to show my love for others, which resulted in their love for me.”

The media is turning out to hear her story. Over the next few weeks Kathy will be seen or heard on national programs like The Sean Hannity Show, Katie Couric’s “Katie”, Foxnews, Daystar, Trinity Broadcasting Network along with nationally syndicated radio shows like The Janet Mefferd Show. In addition, Sanders will host several book signings and do multiple interviews on regional radio stations. And, of course, the press in Oklahoma City is getting behind the book with a feature in The Oklahoman.

New York Times bestselling author, actress and friend Melissa Gilbert says, “Kathy Sanders is, quite simply, one of the most courageous women I’ve ever known.”

Sanders found another outlet for her pain: Art. A talented artist, Sanders often paints portraits as an artistic outreach to comfort others who have suffered similar, unexpected loss. Visit her web site: kathysandersart.com.~JK
