Have you lost loved ones and feel there is no meaning to your life and it is hard to get started again? 

My guest Barbara Joe, author of Triumph and Hope, lost several loved ones but through her grief and sadness, she remembered how to pick up her life and continue to live a full life.  Barbara joined the Peace Corps at age 62, really!  Her inner spirit for helping others in Honduras helped to soften her grief from losing a son, foster son and husband. 

Barbara will be sharing her experiences in the Peace Corps and how it touched her heart and soul to help others.  Public service, giving back, and learning humanitairian principles are the core of this volunteer program.  There is always a need for volunteers no matter what your age or profession.  Are you at the crossroads in your life and not sure what to do next?  Perhaps take a step back and out of your usual path and learn the real reason for human existence, love, caring and compassion.

This is the link to Barbara's blog where she continues to write about her experiences.  Here is the website of the non-profit, totally volunteer medical team project to Honduras with which she participates yearly.  Please note:  volunteers and donations are always in great need.
