Catherine has the honor of writing a monthly column to inspire and show appreciation for our courageous service men and women.

Below are some letters Catherine has received over the yeras from our heroic service men and women:

“My mother sent me your articles and it helps me through hard times. Right now I’m stationed in Afghanistan, and it gets really lonely and depressing our here. I know that the Lord is with me, but it’s a good reminder when I pull the articles out of my wallet. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.” — U.S. Army


“I am a specialist in the Army over in Iraq. I would love to read A NEW YOU, Words to Soothe the Mind, Body and Spirit. It really helps to read inspiring stuff over here, especially as a medic and seeing and doing what we do everyday.”


“I am in the Navy right now in support of ‘Operation Allied Forces’ here in the Adriatic Sea. I was in the mess deck and found your article. I have no idea how it got onto the ship. I want to thank you for writing such an article. It made me realize that whatever the situation is in the world we should never lose our desire to triumph, to achieve our goals. Thank you for those words of wisdom.”


“Presently, I am stationed in Iraq. I have read your column from the Connecticut Guardian on several occasions and always have found it heartwarming. Thank you again, for your time, words, and thoughts. God Bless You and your Family.”


“I spoke at the United Nations several months back and read excerpts from one of your columns bringing international interest.”


“Thank you for your monthly contribution to our Connecticut Guardian. Your articles serve as an inspiration and soothing comfort to the family members and Soldiers and Airmen of our organization.”


“Tuesday marks one year since I left home. We still have at least six months ahead of us. I certainly appreciate your encouragement. The past year has been unlike any other in my life. I suspect the same will be true for the new year. Take care and God Bless You.”

We look forward to providing more great inspiration to the men and women currently serving in the U.S. military, as well as those that have already done their duty.
