Encouragement & Hope
for Military Spouses

Jen McDonald

Hi, I’m Jen!

As a longtime military spouse (my husband served 31 years!), my veteran husband and I raised our 4 kids all around the globe. Military life can be challenging, but also so rewarding if you embrace it! I know what it’s like to start over and over again, go through the deployments and separations that go along with military service, and to help military kids through their own struggles. These days, I’m also a grandmother and the mom of an active duty son. My goal is to encourage and support you in your own military spouse journey.

Remember: You’re amazing, you’re strong, and you’ve got this!
