We can all use a good dose of inspiration now and then.

For a real emotional pick-me-up look no further than this powerful short video – Carrol and Kayla’s Path – which tells the story of a group of remarkable women in Ritchie County.

Carrol Layfield manages a quilting group of older women in Ritchie County that used to work in the area’s garment industry. The women piece together quilts from remnants of of fabric from shuttered factories.

Kayla Turk is a young mother of two children who returned home to Ritchie County to live with her parents when her husband was laid off.

At a communal baby shower, Kayla receives a quilt from the older women, and discovers a network of support and an avenue to learn about the key elements of good health, including good oral health during pregnancy.

This beautiful film was produced as part of Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s “Our Path to Your Health” initiative. The initiative features a series of videos from around the United States focusing on grassroots community projects that made a positive impact.
