“It is a privilege when hurting people trust you enough to walk beside them during difficult times. It is one of the loveliest aspects of “the body of Christ.” As we learn particular lessons in life, we can share this wisdom with one another, and comfort them with Christ’s love. This is what I feel called to do.”
