Another Give-A-Way

I am so excited to offer another give-a-way in honor of Veteran's Week.
I am giving-a-way 2 (yep, 2)  SIGNED copies of the devotional book Battlefields & Blessings: Stories of Faith and Courage from the War in Iraq and Afghanistan.

I had the unique honor of reviewing this incredibly powerful book before it was even published. I remember reading through this book and being completely inspired by the stories. Stories of perseverance against the odds. Stories of courage in the harrowing experience of war. As well as stories of faith and the reminder that God is with us-He is in even the smallest details. When one of the authors, Jocelyn Green, contacted me with the offer to give 2 copies of this devotional book, I was so excited.

This book is a 365 day devotional book with a collection of stories from men and women who have been closely involved with the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The stories come from officers, NCOs, chaplains, special forces, family members, non-military, and even a commander in chief! The stories chronicle events from 9/11 to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. There are stories of grief, of PTSD, of deployment, of leadership, of courage, of faith, and so much more. These stories bring to life the real challenges each contributor faced along with scripture and a short prayer.

This devotional book opened my eyes to a side of deployment that I have never experienced. The recounts of the firsthand experiences were so powerful and moving, but the most powerful and moving part of each story was the unmistakable comfort of God's hand in each and every situation. Battlefields & Blessings: Stories of Faith and Courage from the War in Iraq and Afghanistanhad a stronger impact on me than any other devotional book I have read. It spurred patriotism, pride, and being more of a prayer warrior. This devotional book is without a doubt one of the most moving devotionals I have ever read and I definitely consider it a must read! It is such a powerful and moving book that I think every one who wants to learn the realities of war as well as learn about God's grace, strength and comfort will benefit from reading it.

Battlefields & Blessings: Stories of Faith and Courage from the War in Iraq and Afghanistan has received:
·         Gold Medal, spiritual/religious category, Military Writers Society of America (award presented in Pittsburgh on Oct. 2, 2010)
·         Silver Medal, inspirational category, Branson Stars and Flags Book Awards (award will be presented in Branson, Mo., Nov. 6 – but I will not be able to be there)

Please click HERE for more information about this incredibly powerful book.

So, how do you win this book???  Just leave me a comment below.  (Remember this devotional book is for anyone)  Because I am a little late getting this up, I am going to leave this contest open until Sunday, Nov. 14 at 8pm central.  I will randomly choose 2 winners at that time.  Good luck!!!
