Hi Yall! Thanks for visiting Adventures of a Young Wife! I am so glad you stopped in and I can’t wait to share this crazy journey with you! Please grab a cup of coffee, tea, diet coke, or maybe a glass of wine and hang out for a bit with me!
In case you don’t know me, my name is Grace. And if you haven’t guess I am definitely from the south! I recently graduated from the University of South Carolina, with a degree in Counselor Education with an emphasis in marriage and family counseling. And I have been fortunate enough to marry the man of my dreams, so I have been Army Wife for a little over than a year. I am also a soon to be first time mom! This is an exciting time for our little family as we go through a new transition- parenthood and preparing for another period of separation.
Now you might be asking yourself, what can I do for you? Well I am hoping to offer you a unique insight into how relationships absolutely affect out well being. Even before joining the military lifestyle I have known and experienced the importance of community in my life. But I have seen the importance of community even more so in the last year when I moved away from home to join my husband.
There are a lot of blogs and websites out there that deal with parenting, marriage, wellness, anxiety and depression. Yet so few can draw the connection between these topics. But no doubt, these things are connected- as wellness increases, anxiety and depression decrease naturally, but martial satisfaction and increased positive parenting will also come! As our marriages suffer, our wellbeing can decrease, making room for more anxiety and depression. What does this mean? It means we can’t piecemeal our lives into different segments: motherhood, spouse hood, mental health and wellness.
As we begin to look at our lives wholly then we can rise and be the wonderful people we were designed and destined to be! I can help you do just that! My hope is that throughout the ideas in this blog that it will help us create connections between these areas in our lives. If you are new to my blog check out the introduction to my wellness challenge! This is a great place to learn about how all areas of our lives can affect our wellness!
