The Gassen Family

“After our daughter Eve was stillborn, we sought respite at Faith’s Lodge. You meet people who understand how much you can love someone you’ve never met, and how hard it is to pick up the pieces emotionally and spiritually. We began to rebuild together.”
– Clark Gassen, Eve’s Dad

The Voerste Family

“Coming to Faith’s Lodge connected us with multiple families that taught us about letting the stress go and finding joy. My kids were kids again. Faith’s Lodge is a place that allows us to heal and grieve about life that may not be lived.”
– Jill Voerste, Deacon’s Mom

The Hearn Family

“Our weekend at Faith’s Lodge was the first time we felt understood by others. Faith’s Lodge helped us create lasting peaceful memories. From painting rocks, to the birdhouse with her name on it. We felt a bond to our daughter that weekend that will be cherished in our hearts forever.”
– Jennifer Hearn, Oaklynn’s Mom
