Absolutely moving Feb 24, 2009
I never take the time to write a review, but this book is well worth it. I am moved to tears every time I open this book. It is a constant reminder of God's unfailing love, and also a reminder to loosen our grip on earthly things. Fantastically written, and a great read for any military wife, or family member of any kind for that matter. I just bought one for my mother-in-law, a mother to three military sons. Thank you for this book!
Great for anyone wanting to grow Jan 14, 2009
I have been involved in the military as a child, wife and mom. I bought this for my future daughter-in-law, but as I was reading it (before I gave it to her), I realized that the points in here are relevant (and funny) to military families, but also to anyone who wants to take a tough look at their lives. Excellent read, and highly recommended.
Every military spouse should read this book! Aug 2, 2008
Wow when I got done reading this book, whom was donated to me from a chrisitian radio station, I was like Thank you God for giving me this book. Excellent insight from the author. Very easy to read. It was so nice to know that other christian military wives have been through what I have. I wish I had read this before my husband went on deployment but its never too late to get help. This would be a great gift to someone you know that is a military wife!
Hope for the Homefront Dec 17, 2007
My son recently joined the Army so I purchased this book for his wife. It is well written with practical applications for military families. I think any military family, whether newly enlisted or experienced, would benefit by reading this book.
Must read for Military wives Mar 16, 2007
Marshele gives such insight and hope with this book. She has been there and it shows. I had so many "yep, that's exactly right" moments while reading. There are so few books for military wives written from a Christian perspective that it is refreshing. Our life group for military spouses at our church is reading it now. I would highly recommend it and the Bible study also. You won't be disappointed!
