Every month, we will be sharing one of our favorite Anchor Moments with you. The Anchor Moment is a special time of sharing where someone briefly shares about a time in their life when their faith has truly anchored them, inspired them or directed their decision making.


This month’s Anchor Moment is from Sydney Hodge, a retired Registered Nurse and current CASA volunteer, from Washington State.

Before she retired, Sydney spent the last 27 years of her professional career working in the ER at the UW. She loved it — she is definitely an adrenaline junkie! She is now a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteer. She advocates for the best interest of children in the foster care system. While at times this can be hard and sad, the kids she works with bring much joy to her life.

Sydney married her husband, Tom, almost 43 years ago and they reside in Washington State. They have 3 grown sons, two beautiful daughters-in-law, and 6 wonderful grandchildren — out of which they only have one granddaughter!

She spent many years working with her church youth group and was the middle school camp nurse for 20 years. Sydney has also done several mission trips including multiple visits to Vietnam, Sierra Leone, Africa, and Guatemala.
