To the Military Spouse...
Building a strong marriage and a good life as a military spouse takes an immense amount of PRIDE in the work your Service Member is doing, but it also requires an immense amount of GRIT to face the moments of your life, often without your partner physically by your side to support you.
In the end, the difference between seasons of thriving and those of just surviving can often be traced back to unconditional support. And maybe, just maybe, a little grit.
We created Pride and Grit so you can use the stories within to start a conversation with your personal circle about how to thrive under the weight you are carrying. This life is hard. It’s also amazing.
Find a story that speaks to you and share it with your spouse, share it with your mother-in-law, share it with your neighbor. Use these stories to gain perspective, to hope, to dream, to heal, and ultimately to treasure this unique life.
Be part of the conversation. Be part of the solution. Be informed. Be understanding. Be kind. Be real. Be honest. Be imperfect. Be you.
And let us support you.
To our Supporters...
Thank you! We need you! This site is designed for you too.
My years as a military spouse have taught me that my friends and family want to support our family but often just don’t know how. This site is designed to provide a window into the stories and lives of those you love and those around them.
Find an article that resonates and share it with a military spouse you know or with someone in your life who supports someone connected to the military.
Use these stories as tools to start a new conversation about the challenges they face and the support they need. Use these stories as windows into their world, so you may fully join them there.
There are not enough resources, said no military spouse ever.
Do you ever feel like there’s so much available that you just don’t know where to start?
Join us and learn more
about some of the most impactful, yet underutilized, resources for military families.
Join us as we share stories that help you find your “mirror moments,” those moments when a story, read over a cup of coffee, reminds you of your own experiences.
Joy-filled moments. Anxious moments. Challenging moments. Hopeful moments.
These are the moments that make us all walk taller, stand stronger, smile wider, and even laugh louder.
Let’s do that together.
She’s a force.
a dreamer, a creator,
a problem solver,
a business owner.
She’s a military spouse, and she’s paved her own path.
Learn from her, support her, or just know she’s out
there doing her thing.
You can too!
our dispositions and not our circumstances."
