Enchanted Makeovers
September 9, 2013

What a blessing to have crossed paths with an angel sent to earth like Terry Grahl who has made it her mission to help women and children who have suffered so much that their spirits have been broken to fight for a better life. Enchanted Makeovers, her team, and community of volunteers of which I have had the honor of being a part of on several projects kindles that spirit by showing them that they are not forgotten, worthy, and that there are people who truly care. Terry Grahl's detail in these shelter makeovers is remarkable! To see the faces, tears, and appreciation during reveal day is overpowering by not only the receivers but also the givers. Humanity is about caring for each other and Terry via Enchanted Makeovers indeed goes beyond the limits... She is an inspiration to all that have come in contact with her and her organization!

Enchanted Makeovers
November 12, 2012

Terry Grahl, founder of Enchanted Makeovers, was born with an enlarged heart, not physically speaking, but in the spiritual sense! Her passion and dedication, along with her supportive team, to help underserved and abused women and children to begin the healing process by showing them that they are loved, not forgotten, and are truly worthy individuals through her detailed orchestration of turning a cold and impersonal like atmosphere of a shelter into a warm caring place of refuge. A home to wake up in the morning in a room filled with light, color, hand made fun and beautiful things to charge their mindset to a day of hope and inspiration in moving forward in their lives; after an emotionally draining day of working toward reversing all that had once been so traumatic in their lives and return to that warm and inviting sanctuary in the evening for a good nights rest to face the challenges again the next day. I had the pleasure and honor of working with Terry, her team, and other volunteers on the Myriam House project at Vista Maria. On the day that the sleeping quarters were completed, the girls opened the doors to their rooms while we stood in the hallway, there was not a dry eye in the house! It was not only the beginning of a transformation for the girls, but also a rewarding and uplifting experience for all the volunteers to see such joy brought to those with so little and so much heart ache.
