"If the military wanted you to have a spouse, they would have issued you one." -Uncle Sam 

When you marry a military member, your life is suddenly no longer your own. You not only marry the one you love, but also a whole new way of life--one filled with separations, moves, deployments, and other challenges. 

How to cope with this ever-changing life? Jen McDonald is right there with you. For nearly three decades as a military spouse, she's been in the trenches of this unique military world and carved out her own rewarding life. 

In You Are Not Alone: Encouragement for the Heart of a Military Spouse, Jen offers a helping hand and a whisper of "You've got this!" as you make your own way. She celebrates the great moments with you, commiserates when it's not so easy, and points you to hard-won wisdom and helpful resources. Most of all, she reminds you that you're not alone on this military spouse journey. 

Each daily reading is written from the perspective of faith. In her warm, authentic style, Jen offers practical tips, related Scripture, and journal prompts for further reflection. Whether it's a deployment, move, or raising military kids, find real-life inspiration and hope from someone who's been there. 

"Jen McDonald's words often bring tears and laughter of reliability within the same sentence. For years, she has been delighting audiences with the knowledge that they are not alone on this journey. Once again, she does it here." - Kate Dolack, Editor-in-Chief, Military Spouse Magazine.

I'm Jen McDonald, and I'm so glad you're here. 





Hi there! Whatever brought you here, my goal is to provide you some encouragement, hope, and even laughs for your military family journey, because I've been there, too! 


I'm a longtime military spouse (my husband just retired after 31 years of active duty service), the mom of four grown kids--including one son also serving in the military--a mom-in-law to two, and my grandbaby's "Gigi."


My passion is military families and their stories. As a regular contributor to publications such as Military Spouse Magazine, I bring to light the real stories of real military families--the less than 1% who serve our nation. 

I wrote the book, You Are Not Alone: Encouragement for the Heart of a Military Spouse, to help address some of the unique challenges military spouses face--whether it's a deployment, move, or raising military kids. You Are Not Alone has been an Amazon bestseller in several categories, including Military Families, Devotional, and Christian Living.


Current projects include writing a book highlighting the stories of some of the residents of the Bob Hope Village in Shalimar, Florida, which provides a safe residence for surviving spouses of retired enlisted Airmen. I'm excited to share their stories of tenacity, love, and hope with you! AND I'm busily working on a podcast for military spouses that's coming out SOON. Stay tuned!
