"Military Spouse Journey" is well worth having, even if you have the first edition on your shelf, as I do. It is reorganized, updated and easier to read. The advice and information are more practically applied. New activities make the content more interactive for readers and easily applicable in daily life. Bravo, Holly and Kathie, for keeping your advice fresh and for continuing to invest in the military spouses who are on this journey.
They have made an incredible impact on my life through the years. Yes, I can say that I know them better than most. When I think back to those years as a new military spouse though, had they not "blazed the trail" and reached out to mentor others on their military journey I would not be the same person I am. I would not have had the experiences I have had.
They taught me to dream. They taught me that I wasn't confined by my husband's job. They taught me to accept the things I couldn't change - and cope with them. They taught me to trade every negative for a positive of this life.
Times are tough for military families. Attitude is 90% of the battle. If you are feeling you need a mentor, a battle buddy, or some guidance, BUY THIS BOOK. You won't regret it.
As a military spouse myself, I can say with absolute certainty that this book has changed my life. After doing the Ideal Life exercise in the book, I began to "see things happen".
The authors make sure to reiterate time and time again throughout the book that the obstacles that we face, (such as frequent moves, deployments and difficulty with education and career prospects) cannot always be removed from our path but can almost always be worked around.
I would recommend this book to new spouses, seasoned spouses, active duty spouses and reserve spouses. The book does not discriminate between branches and is universal to all of those who love a man (or woman!) in uniform and wish to further their own goals along with their spouses.
These ladies have lived the life and know what you're going through. They're funny, honest, and provide a great perspective. Do yourself a favor and read it!
Move a few times, do a couple of deployments, give birth a time or two and you soon figure out that organization, smarts and persistence won't be enough. Instead, you need to do a little more--but what?
That is where Kathie Hightower and Holly Shearer come in. In Military Spouse Journey, they give you all the tools you need to figure out exactly what you want out of your military life--and how to get it.
