My MilSpouse Story

I met my husband in college and never dreamed I'd be a military spouse. Jamie was in the Marine Corps reserves which made it more of a weekend hobby than a lifestyle.

Then on our honeymoon, we heard that Saddam Hussein had invaded Kuwait. He knew that our new life together was going to be a bit different then we had planned. Three months later we celebrated Thanksgiving, announced that we were expecting our first child, and sent him off to Operation Desert Storm. Through his experiences in the "catbox" he heard God calling him to ministry.

Ten years later, after seminary and local church ministry, it was time to return to the military,this time as an Air Force Chaplain. We love it!

You can find more stories from Military spouses this week on the Wives of Faith blog carnival.
