Strength in the Middle

It’s often in the middle of life that things are the messiest. Marriage, parenting, chronic illness, financial pressures, the list could go on and on. Add to that the unique challenges of the police wife life and wives, fiancés or girlfriends can find themselves struggling to make it through the day. Like the disciples on the middle of the lake, we can lose focus and become anxious and afraid. But we don’t have to let it consume us. We can find strength in the middle.

Join us for a special in-person day retreat and find renewed strength for the middle of the law enforcement wife life.
