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.

Lindsay SwobodaIf you've ever felt the pull of "military spouse denial," as guest Lindsay Swoboda so aptly words it, you'll relate to this episode! Maybe you've been there, too? It's that mindset of refusing to believe that military life will define you, change your life, or otherwise affect you. Lindsay's been there/done that! She talks about how back-to-back overseas moves, deployments, and the birth of her daughter all slowed her down and taught her some important life lessons. 

Currently stationed in South America with her Marine Corps husband, Lindsay shares about her now slower pace of life and how she's come to embrace what military life brings, instead of fighting it. Hear about her family's time living in Morocco and how she learned to navigate an entirely foreign world. Then, be sure to download her overseas guide for military families!
