{Book Review & Giveaway}

The past few weeks I've had the privilege to work through a new Bible study geared toward military wives. Sara Horn hits the nail on the head with her new book, "Tour of Duty...Preparing Our Hearts For Deployment."

One of the things that I loved about this study was the real-life excerpts from her life that she shared at the beginning of each chapter. Seeing her life mirror aspects of mine, made me want to read more because I knew that she was speaking from experience and a place that made us kindred spirits. She wasn't afraid to tackle some of the emotions and hidden thoughts that torment military wives during deployments....but she didn't stop there. In 7 weeks, she armed me with God's truths and scripture to combat these emotions and walked me through what she calls the "7 Emotional and Spiritual Stages of Deployment."

I definitely feel more prepared to handle the next deployment that comes our way and only wish I had this in my hand a year ago. I'm grateful to add this to my arsenal to combat Satan's lies and to come through the next deployment stronger and healthier.

If you're a military need this study. If you know a military wife....get this book for her. As a matter of fact, if you'd like this book for yourself or perhaps someone you know that fights the home front war, then leave me a comment. I will randomly select someone to receive this book FREE :) So, leave a comment. Gather up your girlfriends. Start a Bible study group...and get ready to have your socks blessed off.

Be sure to check out Sara on her personal website and at the website she founded for military wives, Wives of Faith.

Hi Ginger, It is always great to see a book based on true military life and the things that a military spouse goes through, for only someone who has live the life knows what really happens. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this book. All the best, armyofonewife (Erika)
