Warrior Wife

Adult; Self-Help & Relationships; (Market)

When you hold the hand of a warrior, you’re joining him on a quest—one that traverses glory and pain. It’s a journey traveled by few, and fewer make it through till completion. Extraordinary men have run our colors across the battlefields of history, but behind them have been the women who have held vigil as they go. This passage in matrimony is unique in the way the military will change you, your husband, and your marriage. PTSD, deployments, or never-ending household moves are just some ways a “new normal” lifestyle will challenge even the strongest foundations. But what doesn’t break you will make you stronger if you let it! This book will illustrate the courage, support, and faith it takes to overcome the challenges of military marriages, as well as the tools, understanding, and insight to enter into the rewarding experience of being a warrior wife.
Reviews
Debut memoirist Sigrist reflects on her struggles as the wife of a former U.S. special operations sniper and provides encouragement for fellow Christian military wives in this thoughtful work. She is candid about the difficulties of being married to a military man but focuses on how the experience can strengthen her readers’ relationships both with their husbands and with God. Sigrist writes simply and intimately, as if talking to a best friend. She recognizes the singular hardships and often unacknowledged ways that military wives support their husbands and country. She also provides tips for dealing with deployments, PTSD, missed birthdays, and long-distance communication. Her advice is intended to comfort and provide fortitude to other military wives but is generally grounded in the idea that a military wife’s job is to support her husband. She contends that “God created woman to be a helper of man... and there is nothing more powerful to attend a man’s heart than to have the unwavering support of his woman.” Each chapter is structured around a particular issue specific to the military, but Sigrist’s guidance is applicable to any woman who strives for a marriage based on conservative Christian ideals.

What a fantastic book! Although I am not a Warrior Wife, as the wife of a police officer, I found a lot of relatable words of wisdom in Hillary Sigrist's Warrior Wife: Overcoming the Unique Struggles of a Military Marriage. It broke my heart when she wrote about having to move across country after one of her husband's eight-month deployments, only to have him re-deployed within a week. Sigrist covers topics like military brats, deployment, how important it is to have a good support system, and much more in this gem of a book. I laughed when she talked about the inability to plan anything in a military life and considers "plan" to be a four-letter word. While I had never thought of it this way, Sigrist makes a good point about military wives with children being single parents. She refers to them as "Mommy Warriors."Hillary Sigrist's Warrior Wife: Overcoming the Unique Struggles of a Military Marriage is a comfort for military spouses. Not only does Sigrist talk about the unique struggles of a military marriage, but she also provides advice that can help any marriage. I appreciated the scripture quotes and interweaving of faith-based marriages contained in this book. Warrior Wife definitely provides insight, understanding, and tools to equip a new military spouse. Warrior Wife is a great book for anyone to read as it is inspiring and helps us better understand what our military families are sacrificing for us.
