From the Editor

Articles hit home... 

Every JCN has great articles, but several in this issue touched me deeply. That happens when an author writes in a way that resonates with your life experiences or nursing practice. I pray that our articles often resonate with you, like Darlene Sredl's Practicing column about the temptations she felt after making a med error (who can't relate to that?). I shared my thoughts about articles in this issue in my editorial (read both columns for free). Write to JCN@InterVarsity.org and share how JCN hits home for you.   

Onward,  Kathy
