A Safe Place for Broken Hearts (#882)

You will never do anything more personally rewarding in your life than to be a safe place for someone in pain to land. Sara pinch hits for Kyle this week as he was traveling, and that allows Wayne and Sara to continue their story through trauma since their return to California. What does their life look like now, and how has the healing progressed? They talk about Sara's ongoing process of healing and what has been most helpful for her in dealing with her trauma, and what proved to be hurtful, even if well-intentioned. Their conversation will help you learn how to be a safe place for people in pain to recover and heal.
