There are many options online. One I found is that you could put it in an oven safe bowl. Heat at 250. Check and unclump the sugar with a fork every few minutes. Take it out when it's soft.

You will receive so many suggestions here and online to use a slice of bread. I would only recommend this if you have nothing else to use. Bread will sometimes mold if the container is not completely sealed and it can be mushy - but, it usually works.
If you need it softened right now, then I believe the only way would be do use Judy's method with the microwave.

For future storage you will need a sealable container - make sure the lid fastens tightly or the sugar will get hard again.

Several people have suggested using a clean piece of a clay pot but I just bought one of the smallest clay 'saucers' at Walmart, washed and placed in warm water for 15 minutes before placing it in the bottom of my container; poured brown sugar on top, marked date and closed it tightly. Clay needs to be rewet after about 3 months or when you use your sugar.

If you want to do it very quickly:
- place your lump of hardened brown sugar in a small microwave-safe bowl,
- cover it with a moist paper towel,
- heat for 20-30 seconds at half-power and check for softness, breaking up any large clumps with a fork.
If necessary, continue heating in 15 second intervals until the brown sugar is adequately soft.

Be careful not to let the sugar start to melt or it will harden into a caramelized mess when it cools.

If you have a little more time:
- wrap your hardened brown sugar in aluminum foil,
- place the wrapped brown sugar on a baking sheet,
- place it in a 250°F oven,
- carefully check the brown sugar for softness every 5 minutes (it is hot) until adequately softened.

If you have 1-3 days:
- transfer your lump of hardened brown sugar into an airtight container or in a sealable plastic bag,
- add a slice of bread or a couple of damp tea bags,
- close the container and leave and leave overnight,
- check the brown sugar for softness the next morning. If necessary, seal the container again and check again later.
