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 Young Life and local Food Bank volunteer, Berta Brynestad.

Berta has lived in Gig Harbor for the past 27 years with her husband Bart while raising their four children. She is now proud to be called Nana by her 6 grandkids! While raising her children Berta also has been a teacher, a tennis coach and a flight attendant for Alaska Airlines. She has served on the area Young Life Committee with Bart for many years and also has been on the board of the Emergency Food Network and just recently joined a committee with the FISH Foodbank.

Berta loves competitive tennis, boating with her family, being with old and new friends, traveling with Bart and playing with her grandkids. Her latest endeavors include raising chickens and learning to watercolor and keep bees.

Although she is recently retired she is busier than ever keeping up with her adventurous husband and spending lots of time with her kids and grandkids.
