Reaching Out to Military Families



On average, military families move every three years. Which means every three years these families leave behind their homes, their communities, and their friends to once more build a new life in a new town. More than just being physically exhausting, it is also emotionally and spiritually difficult. In this episode, we chat with Air Force major Gerard Carisio and his wife Kara about how they live their marriage and family vocation through the realities of their military life. In the first part of the episode, they explain how their lifestyle has reminded them that—as Christians—all of us are pilgrims on our way to heaven. In the second part of the episode, Kara and Gerard give advice as to how you can reach out to help make any military family quickly feel welcomed into a new community.
