Hardest Thing I’ve Ever Dealt With

I lean on the station often. I got diagnosed with cancer. I know what you’re supposed to do: trust in your faith; trust in God. All those things. But this has been the hardest thing I’ve ever dealt with. The absolute hardest. I switched over to WCIC because I needed it. – Matt from Downs

Bullying

Going to school wasn’t easy because of bullying – not physical contact but a lot of harsh words and stuff like that. I like Jordan Feliz and the song Beloved. It just tells me how God appreciates me, that I am not forgotten, and that God knows me and loves me very much. – Tiden
