When was the last time you took a look around and thought, “My life is exactly the way I want it. I hope nothing changes.”
Chances are you have a few things you’d like to change. And that’s a good thing!
If you’ve ever dreamed about creating a life that hugs you like the perfect pair of yoga pants from Target, you’re in the right place.
The Military Wife and Mom blog is so much more than “it’s my way or the highway.” Around here, I give you the tools you need to achieve your goals—whether it’s creating a peaceful home and connected relationship with your kids or conquering deployment and building a rock-solid military marriage.
Most importantly, you’ll get access resources and advice from a variety of perspectives (Think: scientists, real moms and military spouses, coaches and experts) to help you create a clear purpose and direction on your parenting or military life journey.
With a simple set of tools you can create the life you want.
Way back in the seventh grade, my teacher assigned a project where I had to memorize a 5-minute speech and present it to the class. Each night at home, I would practice in front of my dad. And each night, I couldn’t do it.
By the third night of trying, tears gushed from my cheeks to the floor.
My dad knelt beneath me and looked up. As our eyes locked he said, “We tackle the hard stuff first. We keep trying even when it feels impossible.”
He sat there with me until I calmed down, and then we tried again and again until the speech felt exactly like the perfect hug on my brain.
Since then, I’ve always loved tackling the hard stuff, even when it feels impossible. And I LOVE helping others do the same.
That’s what makes The Military Wife and Mom blog different: I start with your biggest challenges and walk beside you step-by-step towards actionable solutions.
I’m Lauren Tamm, and I’m passionate about helping parents, teachers, care givers and military spouses discover simple tools that minimize stress, create peace and build connection.
Rapid fire with Lauren
Who I live with: My husband, an active-duty Marine who secretly loves doing laundry, and my two very loud kids. My son, age 4, is a little bit shy but loves all-things trains, pickles and riding bikes. My daughter, age 2, is the life of the party (just like her dad) and is perfectly content so long everything is going her way and there are people around. Easy, right?!
What I do with my time: When I’m not running the blog, I love photography, organizing (it’s a sickness) and coffee. What can I say? Coffee—it’s a die-hard hobby after kids for me.
Where I live: We currently live overseas in Okinawa, Japan.
When it all began: My husband and I met at a wedding in the Midwest, where I was working as a critical care nurse at the VA. He asked me to dance. I said nope. And the rest is history ? He, too, is persistent.
Why the blog: When I first became a mom and military wife, I thought I was going to have it all figured out. My kids—and the military—have diligently shown me otherwise. I created the blog to offer a place of shared experience. We are so much stronger together.
