Journey of a Military Wife
Journey of a Military Wife: God’s Truth for Every Step was written by Brenda Pace, a military wife for 28 years. “Everybody has assignments they don’t like,” says Pace. “But often those are the very places where we see God’s faithfulness the most.”
The devotions cover a whole range of topics from the Bible, such as faith, hope, love and contentment. There is also a Bible study companion kit for small groups. “My hope is that this book will encourage you in your own journey,” says Pace. Thanks to the generous support of American Bible Society’s financial partners, military spouses are finding encouragement in God’s Word through the ups and downs of deployment. Order Now
