In today’s stressful law enforcement climate, LE families across our nation are struggling more than ever to understand and cope with the unique challenges because of the badge. Law enforcement couples’ finances are limited. What a special GIFT they will receive!

With your help, we can proudly deliver insight and understanding to 200+ LEO wives and couples across the country! We will stay in eleven cities on this tour! Our tour will consist of LEO wives or LE couples events, ie: meet & greets, book signings, or two-three-hour mini-retreats in the cities listed below.

Please consider sponsoring our books for the “Insights from the Heart” tour. Each cover of His Badge, My Story Insights for Spouses and Loved Ones of Law Enforcement Officers will be adorned with a sticker with your organization or logo. If you have marketing material to pass out, we will be honored to do so. Your organization or company logo or name will proudly be displayed on our website and social media sites. Additionally, Gold and Silver level sponsors will have their company featured on Vicki Gustafson’s “Insights from the Heart” Podcast. For BTB and anonymous donors, the sticker will say, donated by a Back-the-Blue supporter.

the police wife

I’m Misty and it is so nice to meet you!

I’m a law enforcement wife, blogger/podcaster, fur mama, small business owner, and lover of all things beach and/or mountains! I talk too much, laugh too loud, use y’all too much, and I have embraced my southern accent. My passion is people. I love getting to meet new people and learn about them.

My husband has been a law enforcement officer for 18 years. We’ve been married for a little over nine years now and, let me tell you, I had no clue what I was stepping into! I’ll be honest, it took me two years to find my place and identity as a police wife. I went through many emotions and even nine years later some days are tough. I want to dive into all aspects of police wife life in this blog/podcast/academy. I want to be real with you and I want to offer resources and support so you can enjoy the journey of being a police wife too!

Our lives are unique because of our spouse’s job and I love how this connects us to ladies around the globe. That is what I love about this life! It is my mission, that through this blog, podcast, and academy, to offer support, encouragement, and empowerment to all of my blue sisters.
