Planting Roots has a vision that all military women would be deeply rooted in Christ. We desire to do this through live events, personal connection, and biblical emphasis. Our website, and blog in particular, are a very tangible way of doing this on a regular basis.
We are looking for women in uniform and military wives who have a love for Christ, a desire to connect with other military women, are personable and friendly, and would like to share their personal experiences and Christian walk through writing. All writers must agree with the Planting Roots Statement of Faith.
Submissions can cover a variety of military-related and/or faith-based topics. Our theme for 2019 is FLOURISH as we focus on Psalm 92:12-13. For 2019, we will have monthly topics, but all blog posts do not have to fall within these topics. Topics are listed below with more detailed description found here and here.
January – Flourish
February – Marriage
March – Friendship
April – Finances
May – Deployment
June – Prayer
July – Transition
August – Parenting
September – Labor/Work
October – Health
November – Celebration
December – Faith

Planting Roots loves to hear from military women and cannot wait to see what God lays on your heart to submit for our blog. We enjoy connecting women and reaching out to them with encouragement and biblical foundation so they may grow in their walk with Christ. Also remember we may have some women reading our blog who may not know Christ as Savior. Our prayer is to reach them as well.
Thank you so much for your interest in becoming a part of the Planting Roots ministry. We cannot wait to see how God brings us together and uses us all to further His Kingdom.
