  1. I will be forwarding this to my friend who’s husband is a Marine, and just made another move from East coast to West coast with toddler and baby on the way in December.

    I would be Interested in hearing about Moving s whose children have chosen the military life. Our son has been a Marine for 2 years this January. He’s on his first deployment. This lifestyle isn’t easy for sure and definitely is not the easiest on a Christian, young man or young women. Chaplains may be available on base, but not easily accessible. There may be a few friends who share their faith, but day to day life, the language, etc. may make it difficult to grow your faith.
    I have buddies of my son who ask me to pray for them, who ask me to con’t to share scripture with them, etc.
    Does your organization have a facet for Military MoMs of Active Duty? These kids need prayer for very specific things mostly spiritual growth and renwel. Us MoMs also need prayer. It’s hard to balance those mothering instincts , and also being a MoM to that active duty child and also children still at home.
