A Week of Christmas – Day 2: Faith Deployed
The winner of the One Thousand Gifts giveaway is Shawn, who wrote, “I am grateful for skype and to be able to ‘see’ my husband often from a warzone. I am thankful he has taken the call from God to serve the soldiers in the US Army (he is a chaplain); to futher the Kingdom and to care for their well being, and their souls.” Congrats, Shawn, I think we all know just how you feel!
To kick off this season of giving and thanksgiving, we are giving away one prize every day for the first full week of December. For our second prize, we are giving away the books “Faith Deployed,” and “Faith Deployed…Again,” by Jocelyn Green! I’m really excited about this giveaway; it really encapsulates everything Christian Military Wives and Wives in Bloom stand for.
Book Description: “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.”
If you’d like to win, all you have to do is leave a comment answering the question: “What helps you through a deployment?”
Please, just one entry per person. We have to approve each entry, so don’t worry if yours doesn’t show up right away, we will update throughout the day.
No entries after 11 p.m. eastern time. Winners for all giveaways will be drawn at random.
Tomorrow we will announce the winner, as well as the next giveaway!
