Mallory from @mamas_onthe_move is Army wife of eleven years. Her family has moved 9 times in 11 years and they have lived in 11 homes (and the number keeps on growing). She utilizes this experience to help military families with their own DITY (Do it Yourself) moves.
She has a master’s degree in Psychology with a specialization in marriage and family therapy and is currently a stay at home mom to 3 precious kids. Her perspective on moving her life so frequently is refreshing and encouraging. “I have to actively remind myself to search for good and the beauty in each place and the opportunities that await…It really is all about the perspective and the attitude.”
“I learn from it, I grow from it, and I’m stronger for it…military life never gets easier but you learn how to handle it and how to cope and gain confidence through each change.”
“I have to actively remind myself to search for good and the beauty in each place and the opportunities that await…It really is all about the perspective and the attitude.”
“God has provided for our family in the smallest details.”
Kids on the move: Give our kids a sense of control and closure. Mallory developed this resource that has helped include her children in the process: The Kids PCS Packet.
We also cover the unique opportunity to stay at home with our children, and how we have both adapted to those roles.
What happens when our dreams change?
“Sometimes it isn’t that our dreams necessarily change, it is the expectation of those dreams.”
Mallory shared that we will never regret being brave, “accepting that challenge even when there is uncertainty…and you never know who you can encourage with your acts of bravery.”
