Military Life

Faith Deployed

It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to relate so well to the message of a book. When I read this book, I felt like I was sitting down at a coffee shop, having a discussion with each of the contributing writers.  I found myself talking to them, saying things like, “That happened… Read More


A Lovely Trip…

Hello Everyone! I hope that all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday.  My son and I went to spend some time with my in-laws.  Yeah, that’s right, I went to spend time with my husband’s family…without my husband.   Some of you are cringing right now at the thought, but I have been blessed… Read More


What I’m Learning About Deployments

This deployment has been a journey to say the least. I am busier than I have ever been.  Everything relies and falls upon me.  I often find myself taking a backseat to the needs of the household and my son.  All of my pleasure and entertainment goals have gone by the wayside.   Having days… Read More

Preparing Children for Deployment

My husband and son are pretty close. They have daily rituals together, such as bath time and story time. Weekly rituals include haircuts and lollipops. Father and son bonding time was recently interrupted by a two-week TDY (temporary duty) that my husband had to go on. There really is no way to adequately explain to… Read More


Pray For Our Troops

Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl, a U.S. soldier, was captured by the Taliban in Afghanistan on July 2nd and is being held hostage. Pfc. Bergdahl’s capture was kept secret for a couple of weeks out of fear that publicity would compromise his safety. The situation came out to the public when the Taliban released a video of… Read More


Don’t Text and Drive!

My husband and I recently saw a young lady texting and driving. We were in the lane beside her. It really concerned me because this young lady actually had her eyes off the road for several seconds at a time. She was so distracted and seemed to not even notice that she was slowly drifting… Read More
