My name is Kate, & I am a Proud Army Wife. We are currently stationed at Ft. Campbell, KY.

Last night, I had this strong feeling on my heart that just has NOT gone away. So I've started a page (along with my sister-in-law who is a Marine Spouse) called, Mothering Through Deployments. Its for Military Spouses/Moms, like us, who have went through/going through/or about to go through a deployment while trying to raise kids as well.

I've been through 2 deployments, last year being my most recent. It was the worst year of my life. I lost some friends who I was close with in a plane crash, & my Hubby lost friends of his own in an IED. So I was emotionally cut off from him & I had NO ONE here. My 3 toddlers needed me & I felt so alone. Without God, I'm sure I would NOT be here today.

I don't want anyone to go through what I felt. If I can help just one Mom keep it together just a little longer till her Hubby can get back to her, all of this will be worth it.

Kate thank you for your husbands service to our country and to your brother in law also. Thank You also that you are willing sharing your husband with us to keep us safe. Although I know nothing of what goes on during and after deployment I will be keeping you and your family in my Prayers. My family Prays for our Military and Military Families daily.

Thank you so much! :) I'm just so thankful God is using me to help other Ladies who are in my shoes.



I was so discouraged yesterday, filled with self-doubts.. wondering if this was God's will or if it was just ME wanting to feel good by helping others. He told me to shut it down for awhile. Go & relax. So I did. I took a 15 minute break, relaxed, took a shower. When I logged back on (keep in mind I'd been attached to my computer almost ALL day & had not had a steady stream of "likes"), there were 8 new members. It was wonderful!



As of a day & a half, we're up to 69 likes! God is so wonderful! I hope He continues to show me the way to be able to help so many Women searching for Support.

God bless you, Kate, and thank you for lending us your husband to protect us. I hope you are able to help the women who have been left behind.
