trees for faith's lodge

Faith's Lodge, where I hold my annual writing retreat for mothers, was devastated in a storm that hit Western Wisconsin on July 1st.

The lodge provides a place where parents and families facing the serious illness or death of a child can retreat to reflect on the past, renew strength for the present, and build hope for the future. And one of the most amazing things about spending time there is being able to walk (or snow shoe or ski) through the 80 acres of forest that surround the lodge. A huge portion of the trees on those 80 acres were destroyed, and the families who were planning on spending time at the lodge this month have had to postpone their visits.

There will be an open house on September 17th to restore the hope at Faith's Lodge, but if you want to donate money to plant a tree, contact the Lodge at 612-825-2073 or or donate online here.

I have seen how time at Faith's Lodge can help families heal. Help them replant today!
