I’m Jenny Lynne. Two words, one name, it’s a Southern thing.

I am a writer, blogger, podcaster, mental health advocate, MilSpouse, MOPS-alum, and recovering human being.

Living in community with others is huge for me. As a freelance writer, I use stories to bridge the gap between the civilian and military communities. I am passionate about narrowing that gap and see my role as a military spouse as an opportunity to reach both communities.

Writing this blog has offered me an online outlet to share my experience, strength, and hope. Sharing openly and honestly has brought a lot of healing and joy into my life.

I joined Holding Down the Fort Podcast as a cohost to offer a seasoned military spouse perspective because I believe being vulnerable and stories empowers others to do the same.

I became an advocate for military families’ mental health both personally and professionally after my own military family saw the benefits of good mental health care.

Originally from Virginia, I take my affection for my double name, my love of Southern cuisine, and my appreciation of Southern hospitality wherever the Navy sends me.

My hope is that as you read my stories something in them resonates with you and you feel connected; part of the community.

Thank you for reading,

Jenny Lynne
