” I believe the more we understand by listening to Karen’s expertise and asking questions about the lessons in the guide, the more second nature they become. Monthly Peer Counselor web seminars is an excellent opportunity to do just that. We can then focus on the person/people we are with. The ongoing training enables me to ‘hear’ where that cancer family is and with what they are struggling so that I can help them, using the lesson in the guide as well as what God is nudging my heart to say.”
– Cathy Pastoral Care Minister, Cornerstone Christian Church, Shilo, IL
