After working in the marriage and family space for more than 21 years, we believe a holistic approach is needed to address the enormous pressures placed upon our military warriors and their families.
Those pressures include the burden of a high operations tempo, unique stressors created by extended periods of separation, and an ever-evolving societal landscape.
Multiple studies indicate strong families--those characterized by love, support and healthy interaction--promote overall well-being and undergird military resilience. When America’s warriors and their families are strong, everyone benefits, and the military has members who perform at an optimal level even in the face of prolonged adversity. Conversely, when the family is weak and things are chaotic at home, then resilience is affected negatively and overall combat effectiveness is greatly diminished.
The primary goal of Live the Life’s Military Life Program is to provide targeted resiliency events to the U.S. military in order to help preserve the health and well-being of military warriors and their families. To this end, we seek to preserve military families, help reduce the stress of separation, help enhance communication between spouses, decrease loneliness, decrease suicides, develop healthy relationship skills among all family members, and foster teamwork.

"They talked about the issues in such a non-judgmental way, and in such a positive and uplifting way with suggestions for improvement so that I had a more positive view of the situation as well as steps to take to fix it. I was beating my husband up all day, and then realized that the problems were really with me and not with him."
