The Breezy Winds of March

Bring Fresh Beginnings

March 2023

Hello, WARriors!

As the old saying goes, if March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb! However March 2023 introduces itself, let us hope it leaves us stronger and wiser. It is in this light we view the survivors we are honored to know. The storms they’ve faced have made them resilient, and their perseverance paves the way for new beginnings.

You too can persevere through the challenges you encounter! As we welcome March and spring forward, remember that the windy gales in your life carry the potential for a fresh start.

March 8th: International Women’s Day

As WAR, Int’l Founder & President Becky McDonald has traveled the world, she has heard of horrific stories of the lack of rights for women and girls, some unrepeatable. She has discovered faith systems where the women are not allowed to take part in ANY part of the worship. They can cook for the men but have NO say in their faith. Women are denied an education, aren’t allowed to hold jobs even if they’re trained as doctors or lawyers, are not permitted to run a business… the list is endless.

February has much to offer!

Happy February, WARriors!

Love is in the air, mingled with flowers and candies and boxes of chocolates.

As you are no doubt aware, we love sharing how the strength of survivors is fueled through the encouragement and love of their spouses. We love seeing transformations because of love from friends, family, and WAR’s staff and partners.

Remember that a kind word can heal, transform, and empower!
