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 Podcast Holiday Episode

So excited to share this special holiday episode with you!

Are you torn between traveling to see your extended family and staying put to create your own holiday memories? Alone over the holidays due to deployment or just moved and don't know a soul? This week, Jen is teaming up with Sheena Arting of the Dear MilFamily Podcast on a crossover between their shows. They've been there and they're talking about it! Consider this your virtual hug across the miles from fellow military families. 

Next, hear from other military spouses and past Milspouse Matters guests as they share their own military family holiday memories. Whether new or experienced, living around the world or just a few hours from "home," they bring their own incredible stories of light, hope, and how they make the holidays uniquely theirs whether in Germany or a little town in the middle of nowhere, USA!

Happy holidays to your military family, wherever in the world this finds you.
