The Spiritual Grounds Project

The Spiritual Grounds Project

Proceeds from this event will benefit Pine Grove Behavioral Health & Addiction Services’ Spiritual Grounds project. The Spiritual Grounds, located on Pine Grove’s main 22 acre campus in Hattiesburg, MS, has long been a place of contemplation and self-discovery for patients and alumni. The Spiritual Grounds project consists of several therapeutic elements including a meditative labyrinth, fire circle and the Paul McMullan Circle of Healing Plaza. With your support, Pine Grove plans to further develop their Spiritual Grounds with the addition of a chapel. Pine Grove’s chapel will offer patients, their family members and alumni a dedicated place for prayer, fellowship and acceptance. The purpose of the chapel is to help Pine Grove’s patients on their journey towards health, wisdom and renewal. Additional plans for the Spiritual Grounds, which is a project of the Forrest General Healthcare Foundation, include a water feature and bell tower.

About Elizabeth Smart

About Elizabeth Smart

#The abduction of Elizabeth Smart was one of the most followed child abduction cases of our time. Elizabeth was abducted on June 5, 2002, and her captors controlled her by threatening to kill her and her family if she tried to escape. Fortunately, the police safely returned Elizabeth back to her family on March 12, 2003, after being held a prisoner for 9 grueling months. Through this traumatic experience, Elizabeth has become an advocate for change related to child abduction, recovery programs and National legislation. The Founder of the “Elizabeth Smart Foundation,” Elizabeth has also helped promote The National AMBER Alert, The Adam Walsh Child Protection & Safety Act and other safety legislation to help prevent abductions.

Elizabeth has chronicled her experiences in the New York Times best-selling book, My Story, and she recently released a new powerful and inspiring book about what it takes to overcome trauma, find the strength to move on and reclaim one’s life. Where There’s Hope is the result of Elizabeth’s mission. She attended Brigham Young University, studying music as a harp performance major. Elizabeth married her husband Matthew in 2012, and they have two beautiful children. Elizabeth’s example is a daily demonstration that there really is life after tragedy.
