Not only do I get to share my faith here at New Beginnings but I am also able to provide a listening ear without judgment to all of the mothers. Sometimes, it can be hard for people to share their feelings especially when they are constantly feeling judged. My goal is to give those people a listening ear and make them feel comfortable. Along with listening with an open ear comes making close connections. When you get to know someone, you figure out you have more in common than you think. One connection I have already made is that one mother and I grew up in the same town for seventeen years and out of all of the places we could have ended up, we met each other here at New Beginnings! An amazing benefit about volunteering is that some day those close connections can lead to lifelong friendships.
Galatians 5:13, “You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.”
