I have a friend whose husband is deployed in Afghanistan. I've been searching for the perfect gift to let her know not only how much I appreciate her husband's service to our country, but also to recognize her faithful service, too. With Faith Deployed, I've found it the perfect gift.
Jocelyn Green and her army of been-there, walked-a-mile-in-your-shoes writers, have packed a lot into this little book. Each two-page devotional is a morsel of food for thought and spiritual nourishment. Not being a military wife myself, I was surprised at how the book affected me. In it I found a new depth of appreciation for what these women go through as each daily anecdote ties directly to the day-in and day-out lives of these unsung heroes. In many ways, they are no different than we are as they have fears, hopes, and dreams. They long to honor God with their lives, but are also seeking to balance that with a love for their military husbands and the country they serve together.
Each devotional includes a Scripture, a 2-page anecdote, a few questions to ponder, and a prayer related to the topic.
Through this book, I know my friend will be ministered to in a way I'm not able. In fact, so many of the books I looked at offered nice stories and gave great advice, but Faith Deployed goes deeper. It connects biblical principles to the real needs these keepers of home front share.
I know my friend will find in the pages of this book, a new set of friends, and a closer walk with the One True Friend who never leaves nor forsakes. What more could I want for my friend?
