The Modern Military Spouse… Who is she? What does she do? How does she handle it all? These are the very topics, Jo from the blog JoMyGosh discuss and share tips, stories and laughs about the military lifestyle.
She is one of the authors of their new book: Modern Military Spouse (The ultimate life guide for military spouses and significant others), I had the honor of reading this book and let me tell you… I’ve been in this military game for some years now (10+ years) and I’ve learned a few things from reading this book. New things such as living and moving overseas, even though I want to one day experience this, I will NOW be armed and ready, prepared, with tools in my back pocket to tackle moving overseas.
In this episode Jo, shares her first experience as a military spouse, getting married, deployment, PCSing and some of the things she had to learn along the way. One of favorite things about this conversation I had with Jo, is that she shares about the realities a lot of military spouses face when they no longer have to work their career, due to PCS, deployments, health, etc. and asking themselves the question who am I, without the money and the stability of the career?
These were the very questions Jo asked herself when faced with this situation. She goes on to explain how she was able to walk through that difficult time.
She goes on to say that when you are in this fog, don’t just sit there, know that tomorrow is better. She goes on to explain…
Jo, goes into more detail about the book, how she got started, brainstorming with the other authors, Lauren from the military wife and mom and J.D. from A Semidelicate Balance together discussing, what topics a Modern Military Spouse may face in the military.
