Indivisible by Travis Thrasher
Starts with a woman Heather and she's talking about the first day she met her husband and he's right there with her but not there at all, he has PTSD.
Story goes back in time to the war Darren is listening to a radio broakcast from the president about the war overseas. Darren is a chaplain and is being trained with infantry unit and to head to Iraq soon.
Love hearing of th eimagination the children have while unpacking to their new house.
Army men birthday candles-priceless! Love charity work she does, photo taking, gathering things for soldiers Christmas stockings, and care packages.
What I really like is you hear how Heather is coping on the home front and helping other in the group to survive and you also hear how he's on in Bagdad helping others with their issues.
Love how Darren uses religion and God to help get his point across to those fighting the war with PTSD and he makes head way with them...
Feared something terrible would happen on one of their missions...
Received this review copy from Thomas Nelson--FICTION via Netgalley and this is my honest opinion.

Soon after picking this book up I felt like I was in the actual war zone, but also back home and having the horrible duty of going and being with someone who had just lost their loved one.
Yes, this book shows you the side of war you probably don’t want to know, we put faces to those who give the utmost, both away and at home.
With God centered lives you would think that this journey would be easier, but the horrible reality of war, and some of the most devout can doubt their faith, but without faith how do you find your way back.
This is a book that is based on a true story, and knowing that we come to see the toll war takes on our military.
Come and walk in this couple’s shoes, they might get a bit tight, but it is an experience with a journey of faith.

I received this book through Celebrate Lit, and was not required to give a positive review. ( )

This is kind of one of those wow books. This will make you laugh, cry and feel good. This shows what the men and women and families are feeling like during their deployment and after. This was tough to read at times because we all know a family that is going through these troubles or has gone through them. I received a copy of this book from Celebratelit for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will. ( )

I learned a lot of things about serving our country after reading this book. Every day men and women are shipped out to other countries to protect us from those who want to destroy our freedom. The news is full of reports of wars being fought and the loss of life in the aftermath. The book made me take a deeper look at what these men and women face on a daily basis.

I can't imagine what it would be like to know at any minute enemy fire or bombs could take my life. It can really do emotional damage living in that environment for months at a time. I never thought of a chaplain being there on the ground with the troops. After reading this book, I understand more clearly how vital that position is. I liked how the author let us walk along beside Darren as he shares the love of Jesus with the troops. He became very close to some and I'm sure there were times he wasn't sure if they were listening to him. The burden seemed overwhelming at times at Darren prayed with them and let them share their frustrations. War is not easy. It can tear you from the in side out. The scars people can't see are sometimes the most damaging. I liked reading how Darren missed his family, but at one point he seemed to distance himself from them. His duties in the service became more important and he lost his way .

Heather was someone I admired a lot. Being left with three children is hard, but add to that the worry of not knowing if your husband is coming home safely wears on you. I thought she took on a lot of responsibilities and perhaps put to much on herself. Maybe she felt she needed to do her part at home as the Chaplain's wife. She held wives hands as they received devastating news, became their confidant when they needed someone to talk to and devoted her time to sending care packages overseas to the troops.

I can see how their marriage was hanging on by a thread and liked how the author took us through their journey back to each other. Darren's journal was a window into his soul for me. He felt that he needed to be strong for everyone, but in that journal he exposed his hurts, doubts and fears. I enjoyed the story and found it to be intense at times as well as hopeful. I will be looking forward to seeing the movie when it is released.

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion. ( )

Indivisible by Travis Thrasher is a poignant novel, inspired by true events, about one family’s battle to follow God’s leading. After much prayer and soul searching, Darren and Heather Turner feel that Darren’s joining the Army as a chaplain is what God is calling them to do next with their lives. As Darren serves in Iraq, Heather tends the home fires and helps other Army wives adjust to the military way of life. Darren takes his commitment to “his” soldiers very seriously. But dealing with death and destruction every day takes a toll even on a man with Darren’s faith. He knows God doesn’t aske us to understand Him, just to follow Him. When his deployment is over the new challenge is to readjust to civilian life. He must deal with what he saw in Iraq and what he left there. Plus protect his family from ever having to know of the evil in our world. This story deals with the frustrations of trying to fit back in, the feelings of isolation, depression, anxiety, anger and most of all the guilt. Guilt for making it home when so many others didn’t and for not being there for all the family mile-stones. We hear about the challenges that face our country’s heroes when they come home after a deployment but this story gives plunges you right into the middle of it all. After reading this I have a better understanding and sympathy for what they all go thru. My conclusion is that we need to pray for our heroes, the defenders of our freedom. It’s the least we can do for them as they put their lives on the line for us.

I received this book from Celebrate Lit in exchange for my honest review. ( )
