What we aim to solve New!

Military women, both those in uniform and military wives, desire connection, stability, hope, and joy. Dealing with multiple moves, frequent deployments, and questions regarding careers, we still must continue to build marriages, raise children, develop relationships, and manage careers. Usually far from family, these challenges can seem insurmountable to accomplish on our own and finding what we need almost impossible. As military women ourselves, we have walked familiar roads and searched for the same things. Planting Roots has a vision that military women will be deeply rooted in Christ, no matter where they find themselves. In order to fulfill this vision, our goal is to build a community of military women to provide connection and a biblical foundation where we desire to challenge each other to find stability in Christ and to find His purpose for us in the places we are planted.

In a nutshell, our mission is to encourage military women to grow in their faith. We do this by building and fostering a community of military women through Christ-centered live events, engaging media channels, biblical resources, and our interactive website. We strive to reach military women with the Gospel and to encourage believers to dig deeply, living out our faith in the place we are planted. We pray that through this effort military women will find the connection, stability, strength, and purpose in our personal lives, in turn building our marriages, families, and communities.

Our strategies include: 1. Hosting at least one live regional event in the United States and at least one half-day event OCONUS annually. 2. Produce one Bible study and one companion devotional annually. 3. Maintain the blog as ongoing encouragement. 4. Build the social media community of Planting Roots where military women around the world can connect, encourage and equip each other.

Our staff is a highly qualified, professional level group of military women located across the globe devoted to answering the call the Lord has laid on our hearts. We strive to engage with our communities, sharing Planting Roots with those in our areas. We invite folks to invest in what the Lord is doing in Planting Roots through financial and in-kind gifts. We are a growing organization.

We will be making progress as we grow in community with military women worldwide, grow in conference attendance as ladies desire to connect and encourage each other in person, and distribute more Bible studies and other resources to military women.

We have hosted 6 conferences in the United States since we began as well as two conferences in Europe. We have produced multiple Bible studies in digital format but have recently produced our first hard copy study available through Amazon (Beyond Brave: Strength to Stand Firm in Military Life). Our online community has grown to almost 5000 ladies.
