My dad first heard about Project Sanctuary, passed the information along to me and I was immediately inspired with their mission of supporting the entire military family. I volunteered at my first retreat almost two years ago and fell even more in love with this organization, the staff, the volunteers and the families. It was truly a humbling and amazing experience, one of my favorite volunteer experiences. Since my first retreat, I have joined the Operation Project Sanctuary Gala squad on the marketing committee and I volunteered at my second retreat in 2016. I have been blessed to be able to work with such an amazing organization and I hope I can continue to volunteer at retreats in the future.
Our home is the center of relationships, with family and friends bringing laughter and joy. Project Sanctuary is one extension of our desire to be with people and the Healthy Marriage piece is an expression of what we truly believe is a healthy marriage for us. Coming together to encourage couples/families towards a flourishing lifestyle is part of our calling and why we are excited to be part of the vision of Project Sanctuary!
Most importantly, I answer the call when he comes home and isn’t the same – and she’s terrified to think what demons may have followed him home. My work for Project Sanctuary is inspired by healing the heartache, calming the fear, building the memories claimed by years spend apart, and helping to put the pieces back together – even when those pieces seem to have changed.
We ask much of military families to endure in the important work of defending freedom. As a Project Sanctuary volunteer, I’ve been able to bear witness to the good work that goes on at these restorative retreats. It is truly a blessing to be able to give our nation’s heroes and their families access to the healing, hope and empowerment they so deserve. Thank you, Project Sanctuary, and all who support!
