“I am daily reminded that pain and brokenness are part of this life as I walk with clients and students on their journeys. I am encouraged and rejoice to remember the Lord is close during those times and He hears! He is able to bring healing and He sees.

Psalm 34:17-18: 'The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.'"

—Tricia K. Brown
