I am so excited to offer a copy of the devotional "Faith Deployed...Again - More Daily Encouragement for Military Wives" by Jocelyn Green
Faith Deployed...Again is the sequel to the devotional Faith Deployed: Daily Encouragement for Military Wives.
I really loved the encouragement and wisdom I read in Faith Deployed: Daily Encouragement for Military Wives, so when the author, Jocelyn Green, contacted me about reviewing the sequel, I was really excited.
This devotional is filled with the wisdom of over 25 Christian military wives-representing each branch of our armed forces. It is broken into 8 sections:
1. Basic Training: Guiding Principles for Military Living
2. Intimate Allies: Protecting Your Military Marriage
3. Tour of Duty: Overcoming Deployments and Other Separations
4. Soul Armor: Guarding Against Spiritual Attacks
5. Stationed in Christ: Dwelling in the Lord, Near and Far
6. In God's Service: Living for the Lord
7. Home Front Hope: Moving Forward in God's Strength
8. For Blue Star Moms: Trusting God with Your Service Member
A little about the author:

Just like Faith Deployed, I found Faith Deployed...Again to be focused on the unchanging character of God. I find it insightful, full of wisdom, encouraging, strengthening, and hopeful (just to name a few) I think that it is great that a free online study guide that goes along with the devotional can be found at Faithdeployed.com
I love that this devotional is not a "self-help" book. It encourages military spouses to honor God no matter how difficult our journey can become. This devotional prompts the reader to move past asking "why" and instead turn our focus to God - to His strength. To draw Him near to us always, not just during the tough times. As deployment #3 is winding down for me, it is easy to loose sight of His strength and try to "finish" this deployment on my own strength...so I am thankful for the reminders that are in this book.
I highly recommend this book to all military spouses and significant others, to military families, to churches who minister to military families, to everyone who wants a little insight into what life is like for military families.
