It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to relate so well to the message of a book.
When I read this book, I felt like I was sitting down at a coffee shop, having a discussion with each of the contributing writers. I found myself talking to them, saying things like, “That happened to you too?” Or saying, “I struggled with that issue a lot.” I was immediately drawn in and couldn’t put this book down.
What book am I referring to?
Faith Deployed: Daily Encouragement for Military Wives by Jocelyn Green.
This book is a compilation of devotions designed to help military wives cope with deployments. The devotions are written by 15 military wives from each branch of service.
The book is set up so that you will read one devotion a day and reflect on it throughout the day. Kinda like an Our Daily Bread book, but focused on military life. I must admit, however, that I cheated and read several devotions a day…sometimes because I needed it and other times because I couldn’t put the book down.
My husband has been deployed for several months now and I wish I would have started reading this book on Day 1 of the deployment. I strongly recommend this book to other military wives, even if they aren’t dealing with a deployment right now.
To find out more about this book, click Faith Deployed. For a limited time, the author is offering two books for $12 plus shipping. You still have the option to order just one for $6.00, but it would be nice to buy one for yourself and a friend. It would make a nice Christmas gift.
