With the insight of things eternal, as she watches her son dress for for war, she "sees" the realtity of the biblical description of how to prepare for war.
Your soldier family and friends will be encouraged and uplifted.
Edie Melson knows.
She watched her oldest son leave for Iraq. Twice. She spent many nights clutching her Bible and pounding the gates of heaven as only a mother can. She writes from an honest heart. Sometimes with humor and sometimes with raw emotion. There's no attempt to gloss over the challenges experienced by the families of the deployed.
But there is so much hope.
From the stories of now grown children of WWII servicemen to spouses of 20+ year career military personnel, a beautiful picture of God's faithfulness emerges. We see prayers answered, relationships restored, and challenges met.
From the hearts of mothers, wives, and daughters we see irrefutable evidence that God cares. He knows the battle is being fought on both fronts and He is the only One who can be in both places. He is the Constant. He is the Peace.
If you love a soldier, or love someone who does, Fighting Fear: Winning the War at Home When Your Soldier Leaves for Battle is a must read. It belongs on the bedside table of every spouse, parent, child, or sibling of our soldiers in harm's way.
Not only does Melson's book offer encouragement and hope to the families of those in combat, it reveals to those who are exempt that we can offer support to those families.
Not only did I admire the unselfish strength of the soldiers, the stories revealed the courage and faith of the families who send their loved one into danger.
Military moms, wives, and others will find strength through the transparency of those who share remembrances of how they fought past fear and found peace. Phyllis Qualls Freeman
I leaned against the kitchen counter to thumb through a couple of chapters. I found myself there still two hours later. Fighting Fear, Winning the War at Home is that good.Fighting Fear: Winning the War at Home When Your Soldier Leaves for Battle

Wasn't what I thought. Was hoping it would be a reference for people I work with, but the tone and approach weren't what I was looking for. May be good for someone else.Published on March 10, 2013 by Jo A. Geiser
