The Christian Milspouse Podcast Episode 1
Welcome to the Christian Milspouse Podcast! On this episode, I introduce you to the podcast (and me!), talk about what to expect, and share some verses to think about this week.
Each week on the Christian Milspouse Podcast, we’ll talk about a theme that applies to your military life and Christian faith. Some topics we’re covering: waiting, loneliness, finding friends and your community, keeping your marriage strong, and so much more.
I’ll also share a Scripture or two, and hopefully leave you with something to think about for the week. I’m designing each of these episodes to be short, only 5-10 minutes, not only so I can keep up with them, but also so you can you listen quickly when you have a moment or two!
I’ll often be sharing some of my heroes of the faith, and this week I talk a bit about Elisabeth Elliott.
Her words and ministry meant so much to me as a young military spouse away from home for the first time. Her radio show, Gateway to Joy, was an absolute lifeline to me as a young mother who’d left her career to focus on staying home with my new baby and wondering if my position and presence mattered. I learned so much from her!
Some of my favorite Elisabeth Elliot quotes:
This week, I also talked about some Bible verses that are important to me. Do you have a “life verse”? Here’s mine. I’d love to hear what yours is!
