Hello, I’m so glad you’re here!
I’m Corrie! A military spouse with a passion for looking at things differently. Not through rose-colored glasses, but through a joyful heart.
We joined the military a little later than normal and with a few years of full-time civilian work and full-time ministry work, I’ve come to see that all of life has highs and lows, pros and cons. As I began to follow other military accounts, I would laugh along with the funny memes but also started to see that sometimes there was an undercurrent of bitterness or complaining. I LOVE a funny meme about military life, but I also wanted to provide a space that celebrated the uniqueness, the blessings, and the adventure of it all…if only one is able to see it! And from that, A Joyful Milspouse was born.
My background / education is in Exercise Science, and I have a passion for all things healthy living so the archives and occasional post will have a bit of that…I can’t help it :). But the heart of why I’m here is to encourage and share resources that I pray will be useful to you as a military spouse.
Other fun things about me and my family,
-We have two boys…life is busy and loud!
-We love Jesus and serving the local church and on-post community through hospitality and building relationships!
-You’ll likely find us up early on Saturdays exploring new hiking trails, history museums, parks, etc.
-I have a BS in Kinesiology, am an ACSM certified personal trainer, and women’s health specialist…I’m passionate about post partum fitness.
I’d love to learn more about you and what brought you to this space!
