Publisher's Description

If your spouse or someone you know has been deployed recently, the stress of this situation will resonate with you. Jocelyn Green speaks directly to the wives of deployed seamen, marines, airmen, and soldiers, through the experiences of their spouses. This book is not "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 or three years? How can I be sure that God has a purpose for my life that's 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.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Jocelyn Green
Located in: Cedar Falls, Iowa
Submitted: April 29, 2009

    Tell us a little about yourself.  My husband Rob and I are parents to two small children, a daughter and a son. My freelance articles have been published in Christianity Today, Today's Christian, EFCA Today, InSite, Ignite Your Faith, Today's Pentecostal Evangel, and more. I also write for universities, nonprofits and corporations. I am an active member of the Evangelical Press Association.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  When I became a Coast Guard wife, I saw first hand the need for biblical encouragement specifically for military wives. Scripture passages jumped out at me with new relevance, and I assumed there must be a book out there already which draws connections from God's Word directly to the military wife's unique lifestyle. When I didn't find exactly what I was looking for, I decided to organize a book myself. I enlisted the help of 14 other military wives from each branch of the U.S. Armed Forces, and eventually, Faith Deployed was born.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  More than anything, I want military wives to see how God is speaking directly to them through His Word. He knows what they are going through, He cares, and He has a lot to say about their challenges and trials. Since military wives are usually the ones holding up their families, I want to hold them up. I want them to be nourished and cared for, and I want them to grow spiritually with the help of this book. Loved ones of military wives can also get a much better understanding of what military wives experience by reading Faith Deployed. They will know how to better pray for and support them.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  Reading the contributions of the other military wives, I was often moved to tears. These women poured their hearts into this book and laid bare their struggles- but also the enduring hope they have found in God. The theme running throughout the book is that we can find hope when we place our trust not in what happens, but in who God is. The very character of God is our solid anchor amidst the stormy waves of shifting circumstances.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  Favorite authors of mine include C.S. Lewis, John Piper, Carolyn Custis James, Nancy Leigh DeMoss, John Ortberg, Ellie Kay, Marshele Carter Waddell-- and you'll find quotes from all of these writers within the pages of Faith Deployed.
