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.

I am a bibliophile. Which means simply, that I devour books. I am also an Army wife currently in my 3rd deployment, he has been gone simply 4 of the last 7 years. I suffer and I suffer mightily when my other half leaves, as we all do. Each deployment has been different in many ways. I however, felt trepidation greater during this pre-deployment period than I have ever felt before. A fellow wife recommended this book to me and I ordered it on Amazon. I live in Germany and God delivered this book on Angel's wings, it was here in two days which is a miracle. I am 7 weeks into this deployment and have never ever felt the spirit of the Lord guiding me as I have this time. I owe so much of that to this amazing, well written book. It speaks to both enlisted and officer's wives. It has no condescending message. It has the message of Truth and PEACE. My poor book is tattered to pieces as I carry it everywhere and when I have two minutes I open it up and devour the message that God has for me. I urge every single soldier's wife regardless of rank, service or whatever, to purchase this book immediately. It has helped shelter my soul and guided me through rough patches with my children. It has eased my suffering and helped me to ease the suffering of others. I have grown in leaps and bounds in these 7 weeks, perhaps more than I have in the last 30 years of being a Born Again Christian. God is Faithful and is walking this deepest of valleys at my side and he has sent this wee little book to be a light when it is sometimes so dark, I cannot see beyond my tears. Thank you Jocelyn for such a compilation and for all the love and support you show your sister soldier's wives. This book will be my companion through the remainder of OUR military career. I could not give it higher praises as I have not the gift for those words. God Bless all of you and please, please, do not hesitate, you NEED this book. It will work wonders on your heart, mind and soul.

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.
