If you allow it, the military career will take more than it gives. It can challenge the strongest military marriage and seduce military leaders into believing their career is more important than WHO they become. The Lifegiver podcast began as a way to encourage, inspire, and bring hope to leaders and military couples when they feel burned out and they’ve lost their way. For almost 20 years, I have served the military and veteran population as a counselor, speaker, author, and subject matter expert on military culture. Lifegiver offers discussions and interviews on personal and leadership development and ways to breathe life into your military marriage and home. Real stories, expert interviews, and honest conversation. A Lifegiver is someone who gives more than they consume, a person who breathes life into others. Listen in and become a better leader, spouse, parent, and friend simply by breathing life into yourself first. Corie has focused her career for the last 20 years as a clinical consultant specializing in marriage, the military culture, special forces, and leadership development. Corie has traveled to Turkey, Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Persian Gulf to visit troops and report on deployment conditions with Secretary of Defense Ash Carter and has taught service families across the globe, including Japan. In addition to providing subject matter expertise, Corie consults organizations and institutions on building trust, creating impactful programming, and working within a multi-generational team. Her advocacy has included being a part of Second Lady Karen Pence’s Military Spouse’s Employment Working Group and contributing to the passing of a Congressional Bill for licensure portability.

Leaving this lifestyle can be both exciting and nerve-wracking. For many couples, crossing the finish line can bring conflict as you and your spouse bring different expectations to the transition . In this episode, Corie sits down with Jeff & Lori Hawkins who share how they navigated major decisions about where to live, what to value, and what to do next. Listen as they pass down wisdom they learned from their mentors, how they keep their marriage thriving now that they are together more than they’ve ever been and how they continue to build their identity on what really matters.
