Intern Spotlight: Val
"I strongly believe that the most difficult experiences during my internship resulted in being the most valuable ones...Never have I been so vulnerable and encouraged to deal with what’s in front of me instead of running away from it...
The most important thing I learned while being at the Ranch is this: if sorrow clouds my soul, I won’t fight it. I will allow my tears to flow. I was not meant to be invincible. I bruise easily; my heart is soft, prone to bleed sometimes at the slightest touch. In my moments of sadness, I must be willing and brave enough to allow Christ in my pain, in my pain for the students, in my brokenness - because He sees it all...Christ shares our pain and understands our sorrows..."
