Discovering Your Calling as a Coach's Wife with Beth Walker

We believe there is a way to be a supportive wife of a coach AND be who God called us to be at the same time.

Today I chat with Beth Walker, coach's wife, mom, and author of a brand new book, Lessons from the Sidelines. We talk about stepping into our "sweet spot" as both a coach's wife and a daughter of the King. We believe there is a way to be a supportive wife of a coach AND be who God called us to be at the same time.

A little about Beth:

Beth and her husband have been doing this football life for 23 seasons. They have two boys. Starting her blog as a way to keep her family informed about life with their first son it slowly grew into more where she shares recipes and what life is like from the sidelines.
