Welcome to Beyond the Military! A podcast for military women and space for faith-led military women to overcome burnout and create more balance. Are you tired of trying to find a balance between your military and personal life? Are you sick of feeling exhausted from endless expectations and working all the time? Are you overwhelmed with the demand and responsibilities of everyone else, from your soldiers to your kids? Do you constantly feel like you’re trying to keep your head above water?  Imagine if you had a plan to overcome burnout and create more balance between your life and career. Imagine having enough time to focus on your faith, and family, and have more fun while still serving as a woman leader.  Welcome to Beyond the Military podcast where you'll walk away with the tools to help you navigate the busy life of a military woman, create intentional boundaries, and build a sustainable balance blueprint for integrating faith, family, and career.    Hi, I’m Wendi Wray, a woman of God, wife, mama, Army Veteran, Military Life Coach. After being in the military for around a year I became a workaholic. I lost sight of who I was as a wife and mom. There was a point in my career where everything was crumbling around me. Then, after a 20-week miscarriage, I went into a depression. I wanted to deploy with a prestigious unit, and the answer was no. I felt rejected… as if I had failed. I began to blame the military for lost time with my family. My husband and I ended up separating because of my career focus and lack of communication at the time.  I felt like I had lost everything. From not being able to deploy to my marriage to my self-worth.  I started looking for hope by reading personal development and seeking God. I realized it wasn’t my career that was going to make me happy, it was God and the people around me. I was missing the fun in my life. I had to learn how to let go and get off the hamster wheel of go-go-go.  I was led to change and it began with prayer, therapy, surrender, boundaries, balance, forgiveness, and lots of coaching!   I’m here to help you create a life of meaning outside the military. A life of laughter, joy, peace, and free time. YES, you read that correctly, so if you are ready to overcome burnout and create balance as a faith-led military woman, this is the podcast for you.   Loosen your laces and grab your coffee, it’s time to step into freedom and peace!Learn more >>> https://wendiwray.com⠀Connect >>>hello@wendiwray.com⠀Community>>bit.ly/beyondthemilitarygrp⠀Instagram>>>@wendiwray⠀Wanna work together, sister-friend!?

    MVP: Military Women Double Their Confidence in Uniform and Personal Life! Learn the 3 Steps

    MVP: Military Women Double Their Confidence in Uniform and Personal Life! Learn the 3 Steps

    Hey lady, 
    I'm sure you have big goals for your career and personal life. 
    Most military women feel confident in uniform but not so much in their personal lives. 
    Instead they feel overwhelmed, uncertain, and stuck. 
    And It doesn't have to be that way. It shouldn't be that way. 
    What if there was a way for you to build your confidence?
    Well there is and it's a SKILL. 
    Creating confidence doesn’t come from your actions. 
    Confidence comes from your thinking and produces actions and results.  
    Confidence fuels you into taking consistent steps. 
    Confidence comes from your mind regardless of what actions you’ve taken.
    Confidence inspires action and that alone feels AMAZING!
    So if you're ready to stop feeling overwhelmed and stuck you have to listen to today's episode where I share the skill to double your confidence. 
    I pray this blesses you and helps you up your confidence! 
    xo,
    Wendi

@ndre B. ,

Uplifting!

Love the podcast! When I need a mental “reset” from the struggles of life Wendi always has just what I need! Her faith filled words are encouraging and easy to apply.

consciously aware ,

Inspired

Wendi, I absolutely loved your post cast today (31 Jan 22). I was intrigued from beginning to end. You are inspirational and motivated who gave me inspiration and motivation. Being in and out of the military is hard for both a Soldier or a spouse. I look forward to hearing some of the ladies who will join the podcast over the next several weeks. Thanks for lift you gave me tonight!!!!

Joy L. R. ,

So good!!!

I am not military but I stumbled upon Wendi’s podcast and I stayed because her voice draws you in and her advice was so tactical that I was happy I found her. I can’t imagine how great it would be to listen as a military woman! So good!
