The author shows great ways to help a family who has a member serving somewhere away from home. One example is simply not forgetting to mail them cards or call them.

Sometimes you get so busy with your own life you can forget that your friend may still be in need of those encouraging notes, visits and calls. The best advice given is being specific with your offer to help.
Instead of just asking if they need anything, ask if the person needs you to come over so they can go get a hair cut or go shopping. Keeping the lines of communication open is the best way to help any family during these lonely times. The author also explains to unfamiliar people the ins and outs of the military.
She lists the many places military families can go for help in all different areas of their lives. It is an extremely helpful book and should be read from cover to cover by anyone close to a military family or anyone about to become a member of one. I was given this book by christianreviewofbooks.

May 03, Melissa rated it liked it. Just re-read this. There are some really nice suggestions for military families. Some of the stories were a little hockey and ended up skipping over several. The spouse spotlights were nice yet it would have been great to see more Enlisted spouses showcased.
You can tell this book was written by and for Officer spouses. And before you all get after me, I know there is no rank among spouses, yet there is a difference in the experience of an officer spouse and an enlisted and the vernacular is an Just re-read this.

Jul 17, Rebecca rated it it was ok Shelves: military. I have been flipping through this book the past couple of weeks again in preparation for the deployment. Kay has some good suggestions, but at times she comes across as somewhat preachy. However, the checklists for deployment and lists of military resources are helpful.

Ellie Kay puts on a great motivational speech for military wives. When my husband was extended last year, after already spending months in Iraq, she came to speak to us nd Stryker Brigade and she helped me snap out of the self-pity I was feeling. I purchased her books on the way out and read this one pretty quickly.
It's a quick, easy read that can be passed on to inlaws and parents too. General information about PSC moves, deployments, finances, etc. Inspirational stories also. Mar 17, Sara rated it it was amazing. Very informative. As well as helps to make you feel like you're not alone. Fabulous author! Sep 13, Rebecca rated it did not like it Shelves: general-nonfiction. I was given this at the FRG meeting I know this is published by the Christian publisher Bethany House, but for someone who's supposed to be addressing all the services, she's too Christian- and Air Force-oriented.
Even when she tries to include others, it's half-way and comes across as shallow. Jul 24, Jenn rated it liked it. Useful if you are a stay at home mom that lives on base Aug 26, Tina rated it liked it.
