Meg and Erin have some big ideas for giving back as well. They are considering creating and selling a cookbook using recipes from their members, with the proceeds going to help feed homeless veterans, and fund a scholarship for military spouses. “We’re all about giving back to the community that helped to build White Walls. These things take time, but we’re excited!” We asked Erin and Meg what advice they would give to new military spouses who are just embarking on their journey. “Don’t compare your chapter 1 to someone else’s chapter 20. It can sometimes be discouraging when, maybe you’re first starting out and have a bunch of hand-me-down, mismatched furniture to see someone’s home that is beautifully put together. Or maybe you’re at the stage in life where your kids are little and your living room is overrun with toys--- it can be frustrating when you scroll [Pinterest] and see pristine living rooms. You don’t know which season of life people are in or where their priorities lie, so stay encouraged, and positive! Enjoy the ride!” Our hats are off to Erin and Meg for their enthusiasm and willingness to help others. It is truly amazing that two women who have never met have helped change the lives of so many.
