In this episode, Jen's talking to Wendi Iacobello, who shares her message of support, empowerment, and encouragement for military spouses. Through her hashtag #morethanamilspouse, her hope is to remind other military spouses that it's ok to create a life for you, too! 

As we recorded this episode, Hurricane Florence was headed her way, but she was undeterred in her mission to express her support for other military families. As a fairly new spouse who came into this life a little later than some, Wendi also talks about pregnancy loss, what helped her after the loss of her unborn baby, how to reach out to others experiencing grief, how the military can do better about focusing on childless couples as well as those with children, and her work with her Strength4Spouses blog. She has so many great ideas for military spouses to build their identity outside of the military space.

What's her favorite Southern food and who was her favorite celebrity sighting? Listen in to find out!
