A little over a month ago I hosted Jocelyn Green, author of Faith Deployed: Daily Encouragement for Military Wives, on this blog. If you missed her visit, you can read the interview HERE.
Today I'm sharing my partial review of this great devotional book. I say "partial" because I'm only about a quarter of the way through the book at this point in time. But I'd like to let you know my thoughts so far!
My Partial Review:
I am not a military wife, but this wonderful devotional book is still full of great reminders for me. I have read through the first section entitled "Taking Every Thought Captive," and I am almost finished with the second section entitled "Guarding the Heart." The first section encourages the reader, through various pieces written by different military wives, to have a proper attitude--seeing blessings in solitude, joy in God's sovereignty, and a need for compassion and understanding toward others. The second section discusses more specifically the hardships of being a military wife, such as the temptations involved with being left behind, alone for long periods of time.
While this book is directed more toward military wives and would surely be a great comfort and help to them, I still have been blessed by what I have read and look forward to reading more. I love the book's focus on God and others, looking beyond oneself. With heartfelt pieces, questions to ponder, and prayers to read, Faith Deployed has much to offer for any reader.
