Item description for Faith Deployed: Daily Encouragement for Military Wives by Jocelyn Green...
Overview If your spouse, or someone you know, has been deployed recently, the stress of that situation will resonate with you. Jocelyn Green speaks directly to the wives of deployed seamen, marines, airmen, and soldiers, via the experiences of their spouses.
This book is not a ?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 to three years? And how can I be sure that God has a purpose for my life that is 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.

My Review on Jocelyn's Book May 4, 2010
There really is only one word to describe this month's book review, inspirational. When Jocelyn Green and I spoke last month about an interview for her column "My Military Wife Life", I found it as a wonderful opportunity for me to read and review her new book. I could not put this book down for two reasons. First, I found myself so connected to so many of the stories portrayed in this book, and the prayer versus were something that truly connected with these stories and situations. Second, this book gets straight to the point. You know exactly from the start of the book what the purpose is and what to expect. This is a comforting feeling while reading, and a great read for anyone who needs a spiritual guide during deployment.
Faith Deployed: Daily Encouragement for Military Wives
The way this book is put together is just perfect. To start it off, the book is very easy to read and you can easily look up a situation you currently are facing in the contents. The book has about a total of 86 excerpts in which was written by Jocelyn and 15 other Christian military wives, all from different branches of service. Each excerpt has a few questions to ask you, and a prayer related to the situation. The women that share their personal and honest life stories help us military wives to relate to the stories and remember just how much we need support and encouragement during these times.
This book is great to carry with you anywhere and keep handy in that special time of need. It is a great reminder as to how important a role God plays in our lives. If you are a civilian with a military spouse friend or family member, this makes a great gift, and shows your appreciation. Don't be fooled by the title, this is just not for military wives but also for family members and husbands. Each and every spouse should have this on their bookshelf.
A Much Needed Inspirational Book! Apr 27, 2010
I think the title of the newest book by Jocelyn Green "Faith Deployed: Daily Encouragement for Military Wives" really sums up the content and the purpose of her book. However, I think it is not just for wives and could just as well be for husbands with spouses overseas, or mothers and fathers and even children. There are some fundamental truths and thoughts through the book that lend it to a great audience of readers. And that is my only negative comment about a delightful and much need book.
This book would make a great gift to give to those who have relatives overseas in the war areas or not. The book is heavy with biblical quotes and lots of real life advice from wives representing all the military branches of service. Green does a good job of weaving in her writing with those of the contributing writers to form a emotional and spiritual foundation from which the reader will find some inner strength and peace from.
I highly recommend this book and suggest that all those who have any military connections buy a copy and keep it in your personal library. It is good insurance against all those worries that may grip you when you are waiting for your loved ones to return back home.

The Daily Encouragement that I need Apr 13, 2010
I found Faith Deployed through Facebook first, then went the website and blog. I ordered two books and sent one to a friend. Jocelyn signed them both and I received them within a week of ordering. This book is exactly what I needed. My husband is gone for 6 months on his first deployment, we have a 21 month daughter and we live many states away from our families. I find the daily encouragement very applicable to my everyday struggles and perfect for any military wife. I am so glad that someone finally wrote something that speaks directly to what we are going through. I just received my second order of books to send to friends and am thinking I will need to make a third order very soon. I hope you can find encouragement through these devotionals like I have. It is a book worth buying, every military spouse should have one!
A Must Have For Christian Military Spouses Mar 30, 2010
I purchased this book during my husband's third deployment. I wish I had been able to have it during each and every deployment. It provides a sense of comfort and acknowledges the needs of the spouse back at home. It doesn't sugar coat the hardships, but provides strength in dealing with those hardships.
LOVED IT! Mar 30, 2010
I just finished "Faith Deployed" and I LOVE this book. I am experiencing my first deployment and this book was and is so encouraging. I have finished the entire book but I go back daily reading the stories and scripture because it relates to my life. It repeats over and over through scripture that God has a plan for us and will bless us even in unlikely circumstances. How cool is that??? Oh yea, and the book is so cheap! Buy one for other ladies that need encouragement. I did!
