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, living overseas, raising military kids, 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!
