Encouragement for military spouses.

Military families make up less than 1% of the U.S. population, and the challenges they face are unique. Whether you're looking for military family support or simply want to learn more, join host Jen McDonald as we discuss it all: getting through the separations that go along with training and deployments, moving around the world, seeing the one you love leave for war, raising kids in the military, finding your own place as a military spouse, and strengthening your military marriage.

A military spouse of nearly three decades herself and the author of the book You Are Not Alone: Encouragement for the Heart of a Military Spouse, Jen doesn't shy away from the hard topics, while providing a practical, humorous look at military life. Military life can be hard, but it’s also amazing in so many ways. We're only stronger together. Tune in each week to hear a new personal journey.

milspouse matters episode 18

What do you do when your only "emergency contact" in a new area is the Realtor who helped you find your rental? Yikes! Finding community as a military spouse can be one of the most difficult aspects of this life, especially when you've just moved and your spouse promptly leaves for deployment or training. But we know it's important to have connections to make it! If you're there or facing this situation, listen in as Jen shares some tips from listeners and her own experience with moving and facing a deployment right away. 

In this first episode of Season 2 (yeah!!), we're also talking about what's coming up, a change in format, and making resolutions for the new year--or maybe not.
