Molinari is Mother’s Day Guest on Milspouse Matters Podcast

May 10, 2020

Lisa Smith Molinari, author of the witty memoir The Meat and Potatoes of Life: My True Lit Com, is the special Mother’s Day  guest on the Milspouse Matters podcast with Jen McDonald on May 10, 2020.

Lisa talks to Jen about the challenges and rewards of being a mom and how writing and a sense of humor can help anyone cope with the challenges of parenting and military life. Lisa describes herself as a “garden variety military spouse” faced with all the same difficult and sometimes absurd circumstances of military life as every other spouse. Through it all, she says her ability to laugh and process her experiences through writing kept her sane.

“You’re going to love Lisa’s warm, practical humor and the gentle reminder to laugh and not take ourselves too seriously,” says Jen. “I had so much fun talking to her! I hope you’ll be inspired to give yourself permission to take time for yourself and figure out how you best cope with life as a military spouse.”

Written in episodes contained in seasons, The Meat and Potatoes of Life tells the story of Lisa’s family, unfolding like a sitcom from her first days of falling in love with a navy officer to parenting their quirky and demanding children to negotiating new spaces of an empty nest

Lisa’s conversation with Jen is featured on Episode 39 of Milspouse Matters: Coping with Military Life through Humor and Writing.
