What a fantastic book! Although I am not a Warrior Wife, as the wife of a police officer, I found a lot of relatable words of wisdom in Hillary Sigrist's Warrior Wife: Overcoming the Unique Struggles of a Military Marriage. It broke my heart when she wrote about having to move across country after one of her husband's eight-month deployments, only to have him re-deployed within a week. Sigrist covers topics like military brats, deployment, how important it is to have a good support system, and much more in this gem of a book. I laughed when she talked about the inability to plan anything in a military life and considers "plan" to be a four-letter word. While I had never thought of it this way, Sigrist makes a good point about military wives with children being single parents. She refers to them as "Mommy Warriors."

Hillary Sigrist's Warrior Wife: Overcoming the Unique Struggles of a Military Marriage is a comfort for military spouses. Not only does Sigrist talk about the unique struggles of a military marriage, but she also provides advice that can help any marriage. I appreciated the scripture quotes and interweaving of faith-based marriages contained in this book. Warrior Wife definitely provides insight, understanding, and tools to equip a new military spouse. Warrior Wife is a great book for anyone to read as it is inspiring and helps us better understand what our military families are sacrificing for us.
