Today, there is no more inviting smile on our campus then his. But how did that happen? His smile started with unconditional love, support, and coaching from his houseparents. His smile grew bigger with counseling through Hope for Tomorrow Counseling. His smile was constantly reassured by all the Patrick Henry staff. With their efforts, combined with his own, the shroud of negativity that held him down lifted, and little bit by little bit, positive self-esteem took its place.
Around here we see that happening a lot. We don’t judge, but we also do not avoid getting to the problem’s core. Once pain is uncovered, then it has the opportunity to be healed through grace and commitment.
Take Away: Healing begins with unconditional love and support.
