God Strong-A Military Wife's Spirtual Survival Guide
Upon gazing upon the title, God Strong by author Sara Horn, you are immediately aware of what the book is about. God Strong, The Military Wife’s Spiritual Survival Guide is a work of nonfiction designed to encourage military wives of all branches in their walk with God, especially during a time of deployment.
Sara, a military wife herself, wrote this book after separation from her husband, a Navy reservist, due to a deployment. God Strong is heartfelt work of encouragement as Sara shares her personal struggle going from “I” can do this deployment all by myself to leaning on God, and His strength.
Arranged in chapters God Strong deals with issues every military wife faces during times of deployment and times of everyday military life. Chapter titles include, “Fear Blocks My Focus,” and “I Am Not Alone.” Topics Sara addresses in her book are faith, fear, loneliness, grace, hurt, worry, and worship. Each chapter ends with “Strength Builders”, scriptures aligned with subject matter of the chapter, as well as “Strength Trainers”, questions designed to assess where the military wife is at in her walk with God.
The book is very insightful into the life of the military wife. As a military wife, Sara is very much in touch with the challenges all military wives face. I enjoyed reading the book because I could relate to the things she says because I am an Army wife. I connected with many of her stories and struggles on a personal level because I have had some of the same experiences. I recommend this book to any military wife who wants to deepen her walk with God and begin to focus on Him more as her source for strength and less on herself. If you have been relying on yourself, thinking I can do it all without anybody’s help, and failing miserably, get this book. It will help you grown in your walk with God and encourage you on the journey of military life.
Many thanks to Sara for writing God Strong, A Military Wife’s Spiritual Survival Guide. I appreciate her willingness to share her private journey in order to encourage military wives everywhere to find their strength in God.
