To Save a Life is a movie I recently watched that is full of counseling needs that many of us as Christian counselors will face once we enter into our field of work.
This movie is a powerful example of how people of influence can imapact and change a huge group of people. The movie has a lot of Christian principles and gives a view into life of a topical high-schooler. It starts off with a young man who commits sucide inside of school and how it impacts the life of the school's most popular student. It shows how everyone has a story, and how not everyone is truly what meets the eye. We all have pasts that shape up into who we are today, the more we take time to find out those stories the better we will be at helping them.
The reason I picked this to blog about is because as counselors we must learn how to see past the masks that people put on and learn to love the hurt out of people. I firmly believe the most powerful tool that a Christian counselor has is the power of love. God is love and people need to see that love He has for them, and as Christians we have the responsibility to share that love with all our clients.
