Your Holiday Season with Blue Star Families

Warm hearts. Cozy. Joyful.

What words describe YOUR holiday season? 

While I hope “bah humbug” isn’t the first that jumps to mind, I know this time of year can be a real challenge for many military families – especially if you’re missing loved ones, whether due to distance or deployment.

I’m here to remind you: you are not alone! You have a support system built into your Utah Chapter. Reach out to me or send a message on social media. The holidays can be hectic, but the spirit of the season can give us a sense of security, hope, and comfort even amidst the constant change in our lives. 

Also, I have some exciting news! Blue Star Families is working on a bold and powerful digital environment to personalize your experience and make it easier to find your people and support. We can’t wait to share it with you, so please stay tuned.

Our team is always looking for new and improved ways to provide members like you with the support you really need. What you may have needed from us this year might differ from next year. And that’s OK! We’re learning to grow together

Tell us how we’re doing and share your ideas with us!

One last thought I’d love to leave you with this year: please remember to be kind. Be kind to your neighbor. Be kind to your family. Most importantly, be kind to yourself. Small acts of kindness have the ability to change the world. If you’re looking to lend a helping hand, hit “Reply” to ask me about volunteer opportunities.

Enjoy this special holiday season, and I can’t wait to see what 2023 brings us!
