I just finished reading your book and LOVED it! The book is alive with kindness, wisdom, and loads of grace. You have been so transparent and honest. My reaction from the heart is simply that I like what God has called you to do. What a good fit that you can offer the gift of being “someone to tell it to”. I have often said that one of the greatest gifts we can offer a child is to really see them. What I really meant is listen to them. Clearly it is something we all need throughout our entire lives. I can see how the writings and teachings of Henri Nouwen have influenced you and are woven throughout your book. I am sure Henri would have enjoyed and encouraged your ministry. I do think we should find ways to work together. Once again, congratulations on this very inspiring and life-giving book and on your obedience to God’s call. You are truly faithful listeners to those who need be met with authenticity, kindness and encouragement.”
