"Standing firm in one spirit, striving together side by side." Philippians 1:27
Side by Side was founded in Rochester, Minnesota in 1988 as a living room Bible study, to encourage and support medical wives. There are now over 60 chapters across the country!
Being a medical wife presents many unique challenges: moving to a new area where you may not know anyone, having your husband gone much of the time, and living on a limited income. For those who have children, it can sometimes feel like you are doing it on your own. Side by Side offers a community of women who can relate to one another as medical wives and encourage one another on this path.
We aim to meet for fellowship at least twice a month in addition to other social activities. See the 'Schedule' tab for more information on when and where we meet. Our prayer and hope is that it will be a time to build each other up, be strengthened, and challenge one another to be the best wives and mothers we can be. God has called us to this role, but we can't do it alone.
Request to join our private Facebook group Side By Side-Dallas/Fort Worth (if you live on the Fort Worth side of the metroplex, their events are posted in this group as well) to get in contact with other local medical wives!
You can also request to join the private national Facebook group Side By Sideto get to know medical wives across the country!
