It’s Open!! The Fire Wife Sisterhood

by | Archive

I am beyond excited to announce a brand new component to our own personal, private online community

firewifecommunitylaunchThe Fire Wife Sisterhood

Ever since we started our Private Wives Group on facebook in the summer of 2012, so many women have been personally blessed by the fellowship and support and encouragement they have found there.

So much so that we are now over 1200 women WHO NEVER STOP TALKING!  and we are busting out the seams of that group!

So I’m super excited to show you our brand new online community.    I know, I know, I know we’re all addicted to facebook.  And it has its conveniences.  But it’s lacking a few things we need for a group of women this large.

At you will now be able to join the Fire Wife community and then friend and follow all the fire wives you best relate to.  You can “favorite” and “like” and “follow” just like all your social media platforms except that its all contained right here in our private fire wives community.   (And you don’t have to tell anyone but you don’t have to follow those conversations that don’t strike your fancy!)

Our Fire Wife Community is free to join.  Just go to and get started right away.

In addition, we are offering the Fire Wife Sisterhood Membership.  When you join the sisterhood you get access to special small groups focused on the topics that matter to you.

We have groups for volunteers, for new fire wives, for pregnant fire wives.  We have Fit Fire Wife, a book club and we have separate areas for the local groups to chat and coordinate all your fun events.

There are safe places to have those intimate discussions when your marriage is really in a crisis moment.   And a group to “Fire Up Your Love Life” for those who are looking for advice on the more intimate details.

I have listened to feedback from so many of you and realize you are all different.

– we work out differently

– we eat differently

– we don’t all “pray” but we’ll certainly send “good vibes and love”

– we’re not all pregnant

– we’re not all in a marriage crisis (at this moment!)

So in this new format we can form more intimate groups and really focus in on the topics in the fire wife community that mean the most to us personally.

And listen up….everyone who is registered for Flame Fest…..your membership is FREE until September 1st!

And one more little surprise….Our first 50 Fire Wife Sisterhood members will receive this one of a kind commemorative chip with our pledge to be “encouraging women who are building stronger marriages”



This has been in the works for a few months and we simply cannot WAIT for you to see all the fun ways to connect in our own very special community.

So come on over and join the sisterhood.  We want to see ALL of you there in the Fire Wife Community.

The following two tabs change content below.
On a mission to be and inspire us all to be better humans, to strengthen fire families & marriages, to nurture and encourage fire wives, do "good business" in all areas of my life and of course, love on my 4 kids.

  2. Lorri Barstow

    Can’t wait to get my laptop so I can actually “see” the site. Access right now is via my phone. 🙂

    • Lori Mercer - WifeOnFire

      Yeah! My iphone does an ok job but tablet or laptop is better. And…we are working on better mobile access 🙂

  3. Jenney Adams

    Thank you for taking the private group to the next level, this is truly a place where I feel that I can talk and get helpful and encouraging information.

  4. Cindy Martin

    Thanks for putting this group together. I don’t always have too many people to talk with that understand the life of a firewife. It is a little different that the average home life.

  5. Karla Broge

    So happy to be a part of this group. Lifts me up to know I have other wives out there to lean on. Thank you for this great group!

  6. Kathleen Rafnel

    Thank you, indeed, Lori Mercer!!! Enjoy everything I a seeing so far. This is way more than awesome–a super support group. Wish I’d had this “back in the day”….I’m an “old dog”….and I am so thankful my “Mr. Wonderful” is retired (last October–and we are just now getting used to it!!!) Randy went from being in the Marine Corps. –right out of High School, although his parents wanted him to go to College!!–btw, we were high school sweethearts!!– to coming home to begin a 30 year career as a Firefighter/EMT/Engineer. “FIRELIFE”….can be tough, but has it’s rewards! Tallahassee is a “big, small town”, really, but, your Fire Family is as wonderful a thing to have (like Church Family)…I could go on and on…but, I’m just sittin’ back enjoyin’ and takin’ all this in. If EVER anyone wants to ask THIS OLD FIREWIFE anything, I’ll try to help. So thankful for all that LORI has created this incredible CORE SUPPORT GROUP that addresses everything fro A to Z…wowza!!! <3 "Kat"
