President and Founder

"From Struggle to Strength"

A Journey to Inspire Hope for Veteran Mothers


Hi! Meet Kahla D. LaPlante, the President and Founder of Blessed R Thee Ministry. In a world of trials and tribulations, Kahla's story shines as a beacon of resilience and unwavering determination. As a veteran mother of two, her path was riddled with adversities that tested her spirit. Homelessness, divorce, and the daunting task of re-entering an unforgiving job market were just fragments of the challenges she courageously faced.

Amidst the quicksand of daily struggles to secure basic necessities for her daughters, Kahla emerged not only as a survivor but as a catalyst for change. Her journey wasn't just about overcoming obstacles; it was about turning her hardships into a lifeline for others.

Her personal journey fuels the dedication she brings to the heart of the ministry's mission. Having walked the same path, Kahla is on a mission to uplift and support fellow veteran women navigating circumstances that often spiral beyond their control.

As a servant leader, Kahla embodies empathy, guidance, and a comforting presence for women who, like her, bravely volunteered to serve their country. Through Blessed R Thee Ministry, her goal is crystal clear: to serve as a guiding light for resilient women, providing them with the resources and unwavering support they need to rebuild their lives and empower their children.

Kahla's dedication isn't just a story; it's a promise—an unwavering commitment to transform hardships into opportunities, to turn struggles into stepping stones, and to ensure that no veteran mother faces the daunting journey alone. Blessed R Thee Ministry stands tall, echoing Kahla's resolute spirit, as a sanctuary of hope and empowerment for those who once selflessly supported our nation.

Join us in honoring Kahla's journey, in standing together to support those who've given so much, and in believing that through unity and compassion, we can turn struggles into strength and despair into unwavering hope. Together, let's pave a path where every veteran mother can rebuild her life and shine brightly once again.
