Episode 76- Military Life and the Holidays

Milspouse Matters Episode 76

Jen’s “favorite things” this week: 

About this episode: 

Are you torn between traveling to see your extended family and staying put to create your own holiday memories? Are you spending the holidays without your spouse due to deployment, training, or a remote assignment? Have you just moved and don’t know a soul and are missing all your family and friends?

Let’s talk about it!

On this episode, I discuss your first holiday season as a military spouse, managing expectations, the pull of “going home” and the importance of creating your own traditions, getting through the holidays during deployment, and some of my favorite holiday memories as a military family!

I took a poll in my Christian military spouse Facebook group, and I’m sharing what other military families do during the holiday season as well.
