"The Lord has surrounded me with people that understand my heart for healing, and for speaking hope," Bonnie says simply. "When I am in concert, my time off the platform is as important as my time on it. I don't want to be whisked away to some room. I want to sit out with the people in the pews and go up when I am called. I don't want to make a grand entrance. I want to be accessible. I will stay until the last person leaves. I think that is part of what God has called me to do. It is a small thing considering what Christ did for me."
