Jacey Eckhart, coauthor of Stories Around the Table: Laughter, Wisdom, and Strength in Military Life is a keynote speaker for the Pillar Digital Retreat for Deployment Countdowns Nov. 8-10, 2020. Two more Stories Around the Table coauthors, Amy Bushatz and Angela Caban, will lead sessions at the retreat.

Jacey is a popular speaker, writer, and military-life sociologist. At the Pillar retreat, she will talk about “The Opportunity of Deployment.” Gary Chapman, who wrote The 5 Love Languages Military Edition with Jocelyn Green, is the other keynote speaker and will discuss “Deployment and the 5 Love Languages.”

Amy, executive editor at Military.com, will lead a session about time management called “How to Do Everything When You Can’t Do Everything.” Angela, director of the Military Saves program for the Consumer Federation of America, will discuss “Finding Community for National Guard Families.”

Registration is required, and tickets are free. Sessions at the two-day retreat will cover a range of deployment-related topics, including parenting, finance, self-care, and more. Attendees will have an opportunity to submit questions for a question-and-answer session with Gary Chapman.
