Get to know a military wife


October 6 (Happy birthday to Chaplain Hubby!)

Today's tip goes out to those of you in the civilian world who may not have wanted to take the time to get to know any military wives in your church or community. You might be intimidated by her camouflage diaper bag at church, or her air of confidence. You may think, "Well, she's a military wife. She's probably leaving soon anyway, and she has one of those family groups on the military installation that she probably belongs to. She doesn't need me. I don't even understand half of what those letters mean that she said in Sunday school!" If she's a Guard or reserve spouse, you don't even know what that means! It's too confusing.

While all of those things might be true, I'd like to encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and get to know a military spouse. You might find a kindred spirit. You might find a prayer or accountability partner. Or you might not--but you made an effort, and that will not go unnoticed by her, or by our Father in heaven.

"Even though we might be leaving soon, we are still worth the time it takes to get to know us." (The credit for this goes to my friend Melissa.)
