​​​​​​​​​Cathy Powers is a published author, speaker, wife, and gold star mother. She lives off the beaten path surrounded by trees outside of Charlotte, North Carolina, with her USAF veteran husband, Jim.

Cathy is a resilient soul, a good forgiver, and a lover of people. She attributes her personal relationship with Jesus Christ as the reason she is able to experience joy, peace, and a heart filled with love, in-spite of her sometimes difficult grief journey.

Cathy has also found solace in running. Running alone has been especially helpful in providing an atmosphere to think, pray, and eventually work through life’s bumps and challenges. She’s a four time in five years Marine Corps Marathon finisher and has had the incredible experience of running in all 50 of the United States in honor of our great veterans.
