“After working as a mental health counselor serving military marriages for more than eight years, I can say that our military couples need resources more than ever before,” said Corie Weathers, host of MSWS16. “Worldwide tension is not easing up, and spouses continue to hold down the home-front with love for their family and a level of grit that is beyond impressive. For military marriages to stay healthy in the midst of constant change and stress, it is crucial that spouses invest in their wellbeing and have access to the best resources available.”
Day themes and sponsors for the summit include:
Registrants can participate for free or invest $27 for a VIP ticket. VIP registrants will receive a FREE one-year membership to Thrive Market ($59.95 value), be entered to win the grand prize giveaway and qualify to win additional prizes courtesy of R. Riveter, Gaia, QALO and more.
