I have been getting a lot of ladies asking for a book list for those who either are military wives or those who want to learn more about military wife life. So I compiled a list of my FAVORITE books! These are all books that I personally own. They are not in any certain order so keep that in mind. 1. The Five Love Languages Military Edition: The Secret to Love that lasts 2. God Strong: The Military Wife’s Spiritual Survival Guide. I would recommend any book by this author. I have took her classes at PWOC and met...Read More
If you all remember back in November I flew to South Korea to visit Clay. One of his requests while I was there was for some home cooked food. I do love spoiling my man! However, it was quite a fiasco because his pantry was pretty much bare and we had problems with the commissary. Family members stationed in South Korea must be issued a ration card to buy food, cleaning supplies, personal hygiene products, clothes, and the list goes on. We felt this wouldn’t be a problem because I was there to pick out the items and Clay would buy them. We were wrong. A family member, whether stationed with his or her military spouse or in Korea temporarily must have a ration card just to enter the commissary. After trying to persuade the manager into allowing me entry, we left the commissary and decided to check out a Korean market, which was really cool! We bought a few things to tide us over until we could make it back to get the ration card for me. One of Clay’s favorite meals is Breakfast Quesadilla’s. He LOVES when I make them and since it had been about 6 months since he’s enjoyed them, it was at the top of his grocery list. Here are the ingredients: Sausage (Browned) Veggies ( I like green and red peppers and onions....Read More
I know what I want to say, but I’m having difficulty finding the right words. “War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.” – John Stuart-Mill Tonight I watched “American Sniper.”...Read More
If you guys remember, back in June my handsome Soldier hubby left on a jet plane to Korea for a year. This “vacation” is compliments of the US Army. Now, I could have went with him and this is something we considered. However, it would have added another year to his assignment in Korea. Also, he had started talking about retiring and we wanted to make sure we were debt free as much as possible. We wanted to afford ourselves the opportunity to build or buy a house in a place we could truly call home. So, we made the hard decision for the kids and I to remain in the states. Also, we would have been losing money believe it or not. This time of “military separation” has been incredibly difficult for several reasons. However, God is ever faithful! After a few months of my husband being gone, we talked and decided that I would visit him in Korea! I am not normally one to leave my boys for for any period of time. If they aren’t with me, they’re with Daddy. It was hard getting past the thought of leaving them. Although my mom said she would take care of the boys, I struggled with so many emotions that last night as I tucked them into bed. Bookworm (my oldest) cried and said he didn’t want...Read More
We have lived in many cities throughout the U.S. We have lived in Ohio, Texas, Maryland, West Virginia, Washington and soon Tennessee, since 2005. My husband has lived in more states than these, including different countries since enlisting in the Army. The point to this is we have attended numerous churches across the country and internationally. Once we receive orders for hubby’s new assignment, one of the first items on our list is researching the churches in the area. It is not easy being the “new kid” anywhere, but it makes it harder if we don’t have a church...Read More
