About Hope Beyond the Battle
HOPE BEYOND THE BATTLE is a weekend conference for all military wives, moms, grandmothers, sisters and girlfriends of soldiers and combat veterans from all branches – Active, Guard and Reserve.
Our military makes up less than 1% of our national population, a very small percentage bearing a large burden for so many. With the current conflicts, many of our soldiers are deploying multiple times, increasing their burden on the warfighter and his/her families. The impact of war on the home front can be overwhelming, affecting generations, past and yet unborn.
This conference will provide the opportunity for women impacted by war to be strengthened, equipped and renewed mind, body and spirit.
