behind Pride & Grit
Founder and Storyteller
I hope you find stories here that speak to you.
Stories that lift you up, make you laugh, inspire you, broaden your perspective, and above all, remind us that there are silver linings in everything.
Our job is to find them and nurture them!
Being a military spouse is a source of great pride for many: pride in your country, pride in your Service Member, pride in your community, and on a good day, pride in yourself. And then some of us just met someone, fell in love, and grew to accept a life we never fully understood.
We often stumble on our words when explaining our lives to our friends and even our family members. We seek our own voice in a life over which we have very little control. We struggle. And then there are times we don’t.
We celebrate traveling the world, setting up new homes, meeting new lifelong friends, and teaching our children a level of tenacity and resilience we never had at their age.
We embrace the challenges and celebrate the blessings, our pride and grit shining through.
