I was very excited to get to read and review this book because I had heard great things about it, and I was not disappointed. Jocelyn Green along with 14 other military wives from all different branches, has written a wonderful selection of 86 different devotionals filled with scripture verses, faith, and encouragement.

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! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802452507, Paperback)

If your spouse or someone you know has been deployed recently, the stress of this situation will resonate with you. Jocelyn Green speaks directly to the wives of deployed seamen, marines, airmen, and soldiers, through the experiences of their spouses. This book is not "ten easy steps" for a painless life; instead, it is a collection of devotions that squarely addresses the challenges wives face when their husbands are away protecting freedom. Challenges like: how does a military wife maintain a strong sense of patriotism without allowing her country to become an idol? What good can possibly come from moving every two or three years? How can I be sure that God has a purpose for my life that's as strong as His purpose for my husband's? The foundation of this devotional is the unchanging character of God and the anchor of Jesus Christ, even amidst the shifting circumstances of a military family.
