Military women, both wives and active duty, are some of the most incredible women around. Our strength and resiliency are unmatched as we tackle moves, deployments, and raising families. Yet, this lifestyle leads itself to times of sadness, anxiety, insecurity, fear, and loneliness.
Imagine if God could use an organization to bring us together for connection, worship, and spiritual growth, then we all go out to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the world. Across cities, states, and even countries, we would find connection, joy, stability, hope, and contentment. We could change our families and change the world.
What if we did just that?
This one question changed my world, and Planting Roots was born.
Planting Roots is an organization that aims to impact military women with the Gospel of Jesus Christ for victorious living. Through Christ-centered, engaging events, world-class communicators and worship leaders (all military wives or active duty women), we hope to speak into the lives of military women to challenge and encourage believers to live out their faith in the place they are planted and reach those who have never heard. These events, happening live and online, will bring military women together to connect, grow, and worship.
Planting Roots is simply a group of ordinary women, challenged at times and certainly never perfect, just seeking to follow Jesus and to make Him known. We would love to have you join us in this adventure through our website, on facebook, or on twitter.
