What a loaded question, and one thats hard for me to answer even in an every day setting. But I will try to break it down in a few short sentences for you!
It's been almost 4 years since I went on my first wounded warrior getaway. Its a weekend retreat for wounded soldiers and their families who are currently stationed at BAMC due to a physical or mental injury they suffered during the war. After serving as a volunteer at the retreat, I knew the Lord was calling me to find a way to serve military service members in a full time capacity.
A little over a year ago now I was contacted to join an amazing team I work with today-- a small non-profit raising awareness and grants to support for our great nations service men and women. It's truly where I am supposed to be - making (even the smallest) difference in a life of someone who put their life at risk for mine. Making someone else smile and filling a heart with joy is a very humbling experience.
I am thankful everyday for the job and roll I have been handed. Having a position that glorifies God, advances His Kingdom and makes someone else' life better is one I will always cherish and be grateful for forever!
