Hillary Clinton is offering an intimate look at her Methodist faith and how it has influenced her life in public service.

At the National Baptist Convention in Kansas City, Clinton recalled her father’s nightly prayers, her mother’s time as a Sunday School teacher and the youth minister who took her to see the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

Clinton said that thanks to her family and church, she “embraced an activist social justice faith.”

Clinton also acknowledged she had “made my share of mistakes,” but said that it’s “grace that lifts us up and grace that leads us home.”
