Introduction: Hey ya’ll! My name is Wendi and I am a nature loving, Indy music rockin’, sweets fanatic, southern belle. I am building a life with the man of my dreams, who just so happens to be serving in the US Army. I love routine, order, and a predictable schedule, so living the military life has been quite an adjustment for me over the last four years.
Inspiration for this blog: Due to my love for writing, I began guest blogging early in 2017, and created my own blog in July of that same year. I am extremely passionate about helping others whether it be through community service, brightening someone’s day with a thoughtful gesture, teaching, or by writing and sharing my experiences. I started this blog for many reasons. First, I love writing and have spent the last nine years teaching students the art of writing and how to develop an appreciation for the written word. Second, I have been through a whirlwind of transitions since marrying my husband and I knew I couldn’t be the only military spouse in the world going through transitions, isolation, and readjustment of life as I once knew it. My biggest goal for this blog is to uplift others who have gone through or are currently facing similar situations along life’s path. My experiences are geared toward the military community, but I’m very certain anyone can find something they can relate with on Strength 4 Spouses.
