  1. Hi Jenelle,

    This is so heart warming to see all of the love and beautiful and thoughtful gifts donated to the Moms. I can't wait to read all about it and see pictures - wish I could be there to help. Next year for sure.
    Blessings and Best Wishes to all of the W.H.O.A. volunteers who are working so hard to give the Moms a beautiful and loving experience at camp.

  2. Hi Erin!

    Your energy and generosity are so inspiring! What a privilege to work with you and all the incredible W.H.O.A. volunteers to create a transformation experience for the Rowdy Ridge moms--
    so amazing what we can accomplish when we work together :)
