IS IT TRUE THAT HOME IS MUST-SEE TV AT THE WHITE HOUSE?

I love that all of us can gather around to share in these stories of triumph every week. You need a box of tissues nearby.

WHAT TOUCHED YOU MOST ABOUT THIS EPISODE?

Barbara Marshall, a Navy veteran who, despite her own struggles, opened her home to serve homeless female veterans in her community. She is a strong, courageous woman.

HOW HANDS-ON DID YOU GET?

I’d like to say I put up the drywall, but my handy skills are limited. But I did help screw in some plaques as a part of a fabulous design project that paid tribute to all of the female veterans who have passed through Barbara’s home. I also lent a hand with the garden greenhouse by arranging the potted plants.

WHAT OTHER SHOWS DO YOU WATCH?

I can always turn the channel to ESPN or HGTV to find something I’ll like, but I also enjoy classics like The Dick Van Dyke Show.
