I have been wanting to read Faith Deployed for some time now but just never got around to purchasing it with all the craziness around here with buying a new house, PCSing, and settling in so naturally when someone offered me a copy of “Faith Deployed… Again” I couldn’t say no!
This book was honestly one of the most inspiring amazing books I have read in a very long time. Faith Deployed… Again is written by Jocelyn Green with contributions from over 25 other authors associated with every branch of the military.
The way it is laid out it could be read as a daily devotional or you can just read it a few stories through at a time. The book is broken down into 8 different sections of different topics routed in faith to help encourage the wives on the home front. Each topic is broken down into a bunch of different stories that include a title and the authors name, a bible verse in connection to the topic, a story, some questions to reflect on, and closes with a prayer to tie it all together.
I used this as a daily devotional and found it very encouraging, uplifting, insightful, and motivational. Each story has something different and some of them made me laugh and some of them made me cry, but all of them got me to think and reminded me to be thankful but more importantly to trust in the Lord to be my strength and to lead my path.
The book reinforces that the military lifestyle in all branches is tough it’s a daily challenge and struggle –especially while our loved ones are deployed, but with Christ all things are possible. If we arm ourselves in the Lord we can never be lead astray. This book is a true sentiment to the military wives – strong, courageous, loving, and brace – as we stand watch on the home front. This is great for any military wife, but will be especially uplifting for a spouse with their service member deployed.
Another awesome thing about this book and it’s prequel is that they have a great facebook page and website for additional information and support.
