is pure and simple
To Honor, Encourage and Strengthen Fire Wives, Marriages and Families.
We aren’t counselors. Please also seek counseling for many of life’s curve balls, this is great advice we not only give… but utilize ourselves. But we do want to be that supportive bridge during those times of need. To use a sterile professional workplace term, we are “peer support”. In real life words, we are the non-judging supportive friends you’ve been seeking. Our involvement with the FirefighterWife.com mission started with the fire service where the divorce rate have been quoted to be as high as 75%. We want to see that number fall.
Here you will find helpful resources like:
