Editorial Reviews

Review

Jocelyn Green and the other writers in this book have connected to the hearts of military wives with compassion, grace and hearts full of mercy. These writers have been there and have brought to us as readers compelling devotions to connect us to the Lord, our spouse and the hope of a strong marriage during times of deployment. In all the work we have done in reaching out to military marriages, this resource, Faith Deployed: Daily Encouragement for Military Wives, is the best tool we have found for ministering to the spiritual needs of these heroic couples serving our great nation. --Dr. Gary and Barb Rosberg, America's Family Coaches and authors of 6 Secrets to a Lasting Love, national radio show co-hosts

Review

The messages of the Faith Deployed devotionals resonated with me greatly, on so many levels. As testified to by the contributing authors, we are all challenged with trusting in God's plan, being married to the military, and loving our community in spite of fear, doubt, and depleted emotional reserves. But only by doing the first, trusting God, can we do the rest (over and over again). This book reminds us--through wonderfully appropriate Bible passages--of specifically that point. It doesn't dismiss our hard times but gives us hope and instruction on how to break through. I'm excited for all those who needed such a book as this; who knows what new heights it can bring our relationships to, with God, our husbands, and our communities.

What I thought could be a great resource to share with military wives, and others with deployed loved ones, turned out to be so much more than I first imagined.

In case I can only hold your attention for 1 minute, then I want to say right off the bat....go buy this book! If you are a military wife, it's a must have. If you are a civilian and know anyone in the military, it is the PERFECT gift.

Faith Deployed is a devotional book with approximately 80 excerpts written by Jocelyn and 14 other Christian military wives from all branches. Each devotional includes a scripture, 2-page anecdote, a couple of questions to ask yourself based on the reading, and a prayer related to the topic.

Here's what makes this book a must have for any military library...

* It's easy to read. Each story is 2 pages! Within a few minutes you can have a great morsel of truth to get through your day.
* As it's sub-title states, this book is a "daily encouragement for military wives," reminding each of us that we are not alone even during the longest deployment or tenth PCS.
* The excerpts go to the root issue-what do the reactions to our life circumstances reveal about our heart? Military wives, just like any Christian woman seeking to honor the Lord, must choose to handle life in light of eternity. This book will remind you to do just that!
* I have to admit my biggest fear of the book is that it would be shallow. On the contrary, these women are honest, vulnerable, and intelligent. They quote other good authors and scripture. I was convicted time after time because the truth they were sharing comes right from the Bible.
* This book would definitely work if your military member is deployed, but it is completely relevant if your spouse is at home! And then you'll already own it when your spouse does deploy and you need that extra encouragement to look to the Lord.

Isn't it funny, how even after being an army wife for a very long time, we may still have stereotypes with which we look at the wives in other branches of the military?

I can honestly say, that have never met a Coast Guard wife. I have seen a couple blogs of them online, and seen them on a few military forums, but I have never actually known any.

When I picked up the book, and customarily flipped it right over to read the back, I noted that the author was a Coast Guard wife. And again, quite honestly, my initial reaction was, "A Coast Guard Wife? What does she know about hardships? It isn't like their husbands deploy or anything."

Well, I was very happily proven quite wrong. Joceyn Green was accompanied by many other contributers in "Faith Deployed." And as I read through the book, I noted that many of the hardships, struggles and trials that Jocelyn wrote about, rung very true in my ears.

She got it.

I am not normally a "devotional book" kind of person, and I generally skip over the prayers at the end of each, but I found this book very enjoyable and encouraging. I think it would be especially helpful for new military wives.....of any branch of the military....in seeing that there are many others who "have been there and done that."

Isn't it nice to sometimes be proven wrong?

It teaches us to be humble.

What a great book! I have now sent this book to several friends whose husbands are deploying. They have raved over the books' relevant content to their exact situation and the uplifting positive encouragement!!! It's one book every military wife should have on their bookshelf.

I have a friend who's husband is deployed in Afghanistan and I've been searching for the perfect gift to let her know how much I appreciate her faithful service, too. With Faith Deployed, I've found it. Jocelyn Green and her army of been-there, walked-a-mile-in-your-shoes writers, have packed a lot into this little book. Through this book, I know my friend will be ministered to in a way I'm not able to. 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 homefront share. I know my friend will find in the pages of this book, a new set of friends, and closer walk with the One True Friend who never leaves nor foresakes. Thanks, Jocelyn.

Format: Paperback
I think the title of the newest book by Jocelyn Green "Faith Deployed: Daily Encouragement for Military Wives" really sums up the content and the purpose of her book. However, I think it is not just for wives and could just as well be for husbands with spouses overseas, or mothers and fathers and even children. There are some fundamental truths and thoughts through the book that lend it to a great audience of readers. And that is my only negative comment about a delightful and much need book.

This book would make a great gift to give to those who have relatives overseas in the war areas or not. The book is heavy with biblical quotes and lots of real life advice from wives representing all the military branches of service. Green does a good job of weaving in her writing with those of the contributing writers to form a emotional and spiritual foundation from which the reader will find some inner strength and peace from.

I highly recommend this book and suggest that all those who have any military connections buy a copy and keep it in your personal library. It is good insurance against all those worries that may grip you when you are waiting for your loved ones to return back home.
