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
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.

Each devotional has verse that goes along with it, and at the end of each has an "Ask" and "Pray" section which asks you questions that make you think about what you just read and a written prayer for you to pray aloud. There was a wide range of topics that covered almost every area and aspect of military life including main topics such as:
-Taking Every Thought Captive: Training Our Minds to a Biblical Perspective.
-Guarding the Heart: Protecting Ourselves from the World's Temptations.
-Ambassadors for Christ: Viewing Our Role as a Ministry.
-Taking Orders: Living the Life That Has Been Set Before Us.
-Total Surrender: Giving Up Our Attempts to be in Control.
-The Price of Duty: Overcoming the Trials Inherent in Serving.
-Active Duty Faith: Leaning on a Faith that Sustains.
-Hope of Victory: Recognizing God's Goodness.
This book really hits close to home with real-life stories of other military wives and their daily struggles. There were so many things that convicted me and really spoke to me through this book and also so much to learn from! I was able to get something out of every single devotional in this book, and walk away feeling encouraged on a daily basis. There were some sections that just brought me to tears, because of how much I was able to relate, or because of something that God used to show me. This is a book that women of all ages, no matter how long they have been a military wife, can relate to. It's something I will definitely be reading again and will be passing on for others to read as well!
