Faith Deployed...Again: Review & Giveaway


I hadn't read the original Faith Deployed book, but had heard many great things about it. So when I had the chance to read the brand new Faith Deployed...Again, I jumped at it.

Written by Jocelyn Green, the book features devotions both from the author and 28 other military-affiliated contributors. I was thankful for a book with such a targeted audience- obviously, having a significant other overseas is something that not every women can relate to, and this book speaks to military wives with an understanding that no other devotion could. It focuses on many things- deployment, PCSing, managing the home and family, and much more- but all from the unique perspective of Christian military life.

The book features a Bible verse, a short anecdote and application, and a small, closing prayer for every day. It is a perfect length to read when time is short, but long enough to have depth and meaning to apply in real life. 

This book was such a worthwhile read- and you have the chance to win a copy for free! In fact, two of you will win the book. I was sent two copies- one to read, and one to give away. However, with the recent happenings, Sky won't be deploying anytime soon, and I know several of you who have husbands overseas. It didn't feel right to keep the other copy, so I asked (and was given) permission to give away both books. (I will tell you ahead of time that I need to wait on shipping them until I have money to do so. I apologize!)

I'm not going to make this a multiple-entry giveaway. 
Just follow this blog, and leave me one comment telling me you'd like to win.
That's all you have to do!
The contest will close September 10, 2011 at 9 pm central time.

Other site to check out are: 
*The Faith Deployed Facebook page, which posts lots of encouraging verses as well as prayer requests from other military wives.

I'm a follower and winning this book would mean so much to me! My husband has been deployed for six months and we still have another six to go. I have been struggling a lot lately with handling all this and having some help spiritually would help give me the strength I need when I feel like giving up. Thanks so much for featuring this giveaway. Its really sweet of you! :)
