About the Blog:
The Graduate Wife.com was created to share honest, real life stories that will inspire hope and encouragement for women who find themselves as graduate wives for a season of life. Graduate wives enter this journey through varying points of view, with different cultures, faiths, and economic backgrounds. Our hope is that the common thread of the ‘graduate wife’ journey will unite us, allowing us to learn from one another through thoughtful conversation and reflection as we share our stories with each other.

Meet the Co-Founders:
M.C. Stevens moved to Oxford in 2010, met Mandy, and The Graduate Wife was born a few months later! She loves sharing ideas and stories and is so thankful TGW has been able to do that while also offering support to many readers. M.C. is an events consultant, graphic designer, mother of two girls, and wife of a (former) graduate student. She loves painting, designing, reading theology, sharing meals with friends, and exploring around her new home on the Chesapeake Bay.
Mandy Strine became a graduate wife in 2004, when her husband decided to leave the business world to become a theologian. She currently resides in Sheffield, England. She is passionate about grad wives having a voice to tell their stories. When she’s not recruiting contractors in the IT industry, or chasing her incredibly active 5 year old son around, she enjoys going on dates with her husband, cooking for friends, traveling, painting old furniture, being out in the sunshine (when it actually shines), and a good gin and tonic.
