About the Author
Allison P. Uribe is the wife of a San Antonio Police officer. She and her husband have three beautiful children, two boys and a little girl. She is a graduate from Providence High School and attended Our Lady of the Lake University in San Antonio, Texas. Currently, she is a Lead Community Chaplain and seeking to become ordained through the Assemblies of God. She has been a student with the Emergency Services Chaplains Program and now a student with Global University Berean School of the Bible in pursuit of her minister license. Recently, a big door opened for her with the San Antonio Police Department and she became a San Antonio Police Auxiliary Chaplain. As the founder and chaplain of Wives on Duty Ministries, Allison has a dream to travel as a speaker and be able to encourage, hug, and love on wives of law enforcement, firefighters, and military nationwide.

I've been married for 26 years to a Marine turned LEO, and have learned many of these lessons the hard way. I could have really used Allison's insight early on in our relationship. Never-the-less, I found great encouragement in her stories as I received confirmation that we as LEO families are indeed unique in many of the challenges that we face, but God knows that and called us to this life not to let us flounder through on our own, but to walk through it with us.
If I had to pick out a life lesson that has been the most helpful to our marriage, and one that I have prayed over and over again for help with, I would have to say it is to act and not react. Allison dedicates a chapter to this concept, and I realized anew just how imporant that one prayer has been in equipping me to handle so many situations over the years... and I continually need God's help in this area! Thanks Allison, for reinforcing God's plan for marriage as we partner with our LEOs to do life together as He planned.
"God sees it all. Our tears and cries do not go unnoticed or unheard; they are acknowledged and made triumphant. It is up to us as to whether we will act in faith or react out of fear." (pg 86 talking about acting rather than reacting... good stuff!)
PS - This would be a great book club book with the questions at the end of the chapters being natural discussion points!
