I’ll be honest…

I had goosebumps nearly this entire interview.

This is the amazing story of Kelly Kowall, a woman who lost her son in Afghanistan, but is now using her loss to help others heal.

Through one miracle at a time (literally) she started My Warrior’s Place, a sanctuary to “provide a safe refuge and bring about healing and hope to all Veterans and Military Service Members and their families who have returned from the battlefield.”

They have a campus on the water where visitors can come fish, kayak, boat, and talk with other people who’ve gone through what they’re going through.

This is an incredible episode that will leave you crying, amazed, grateful and inspired.


P.S. She was recently featured in Mike Rowe’s new show, Returning The Favor. You can see her episode below.

I love hearing stories like Kelly’s where she’s using fishing to make a difference in the world.

It’s amazing what some fresh air and quality time with people who care and know what you’re going through can do.
