New Podcast for Military Spouses!


A couple of years ago, I launched my first book, You Are Not Alone: Encouragement for the Heart of a Military Spouse, and made the rounds of podcasts and interviews to promote it. I truly enjoyed the experience and an idea began to form to launch my own podcast, an idea that I would toy around with in different forms for quite a while as it turns out. I had the motivation for a podcast, but no idea what topic it would cover other than the broad “military family” or how I’d go about it. This past year, as we were discussing the format for my second book for military spouses, my wonderful publisher made the comment, “You are truly a storyteller at heart.”

It’s like a light bulb turned on. THIS is something I’m passionate about. Not simply providing resources (though that can be helpful), but sharing stories. Providing a platform for other military spouses to tell their own stories, too, in hopes that others can relate or be helped by knowing they’re not alone. (The title of my first book–see a theme?) 

So Milspouse Matters was born. 

Thanks to the expert technical help of my crack producing/editing team Lana Simmons and Tara Howes, my cohosts at the Reinventing Midlife Podcast and founders of Milspouse Productions, it’s no overstatement to say that this couldn’t have happened without their help. 

More about the Milspouse Matters Podcast! Here’s the official blurb:

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 Jen as we discuss it all: getting through the separations that go along with training and deployments, moving around the world, seeing the one you love leave for war, raising kids in the military, 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! Tune in each week to hear a new personal journey or words of encouragement.
