Beth has been married to her military man for twenty-five years. Faith in Christ dramatically transformed Beth from a bitter and reluctant military wife to one who embraced the community. Beth is called to encourage other women to intentionally pursue Christ in military life.
Beth began my marriage as a bitter, reluctant, and selfish wife who hated most aspects of the military lifestyle. Beth regularly made those feelings known to her husband who was serving on active duty. But, belief in Christ caused her to accept and embrace the military life and reach the
military and their families with the gospel. Beth spent at least 30% of her life unpacking from a move or preparing for the next move. Beth partnered with her Air Force husband during his twenty-five years of service which included fourteen moves, four deployments, and two command tours.
Beth and her husband believe their marriage was miraculously saved by Christ because of their choice to follow him. She began a relationship with Jesus Christ a few years after she wed her military husband because of her involvement in a Bible study on Genesis. Now, Beth and her husband work with Cru Military as missionaries and serve as the Central U.S. Region directors for the ministry. Beth disciples and leads Bible studies for female cadets and young military spouses, most of whom are from Generation Z, so she understands the concerns of the new generation of military wives. Having come to faith through Bible study, she has now taught Bible study for twenty-two years and is a women’s ministry speaker in a variety of venues.
What Lies Ahead
Beth has been speaking on encouraging military wives to embrace their husband’s calling to serve in the military and on creating meaningful and joy-filled Christ-centered holidays for many years. Beth was recently certified as a professional speaker with Speak Up Ministries. She is completing a Master's degree with Gateway Seminary and will be publishing a book called Another Move, God? 30 Encouragements for Embracing your Life as Military Wife based upon the life of the biblical character, Sarah.
