Pride & Grit includes a collaborative collection of stories from military spouses, just like you. We share stories of military life through a lens of honesty and authenticity while keeping an eye toward a path forward. Military life, like any life, is dotted with blessings and challenges. Through your stories, we celebrate the paths of military spouses who’ve taken the hardships in this life and turned them into something beautiful. At Pride & Grit, we welcome your story, told as only you can. Find us here.
The difference between seasons of thriving and those of just surviving can often be traced back to unconditional support. And maybe, just maybe, a little grit.
We created Pride and Grit so you can use the stories within to start a conversation with your personal circle about how to thrive under the weight you are carrying. This life is hard. It’s also amazing.
Find a story that speaks to you and share it with your spouse, share it with your mother-in-law, share it with your neighbor. Use these stories to gain perspective, to hope, to dream, to heal, and ultimately to treasure this unique life.
Be part of the conversation. Be part of the solution. Be informed. Be understanding. Be kind. Be real. Be honest. Be imperfect. Be you. And let us support and inspire you.
