    S6 E18 Reintegration, Pt 2

    Matt and I join the USO to talk about how we are handling Reintegration in the "You're Leaving, Again?" series!  Reintegration never gets easier, it just changes depending on the season you are in.  Coming off a year of COVID and a deployment, Matt seemed to be in a much better spot than I was.  In this episode we share our ups and downs and how we are navigating bringing our two separate worlds together. 


    Tools and concepts discussed during the series apply to all types of military-initiated separations; from deployments and trainings, to geo-bachelor tours, unaccompanied tours, and even third shift schedules.


    Restoring trust after it has been broken can be scary, confusing, and difficult to navigate.  Depending on if you are dealing small of large infractions, deep hurt in your relationship can be healed and restored.  In this episode, Matt and I talk about how you can ask for trust to be restored, or do the hard work to earn it back.  Even if you have been devastated by betrayal, there is hope.  Listen in and find out how.

Jhhamrick ,

Army Wife of 14 years & I LOVE this podcast.

We have been doing this military life for over a decade and still have several years before retirement, which means we are in this for the long haul. The encouragement that Corie gives in this podcast is invaluable. The natural overlaps in the military and first responder lifestyles is evident and gracefully approached and I have gained an appreciateion for families who serve America from home base.

Bombshell237 ,

A way with words...

This woman, her voice is soothing and there is so much to learn. She touches base on so many different aspects of a service marriage and the service life.
New was to look at obstacles and advice on overcoming them.
Sometimes it a matter of perspective, she helps you open your eyes. If you ever attend one of her lessons you will have so many ah ha moments.

affablegal ,

Definitely a life giver!

Corie is an incredibly insightful individual. She cares about military and first responder families and their overall well-being. Every military or first responder family can gain so much from listening to her and reading her book, Sacred Spaces.
