As I began carrying the weight of these confessions, I thought back farther and my role as a pastor's wife had nothing to do with the over-sharing: this has always been my life. I am a secret keeper and it's no secret. It's instinctive for people to know when they meet someone they can bare their soul to without fear of judgment. I've often referred to it as my curse, but now I understand it is my gift. A gift not to take lightly.
