Publisher's Description

For every wounded warrior, there is a wounded home--an immediate and extended family and community impacted by their loved one's war experiences. Every day service members are returning from combat deployments to their families. And every day war comes home with them.

When a combat veteran struggles with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and/or traumatic brain injury (TBI), every member of the family experiences the effects. Spouses, parents, and children must undergo changes on the home front, a process that resembles the phases of grief. Confusion, hurt, anger, guilt, fatigue, and fear lie behind their brave smiles and squared shoulders.

Wounded Warrior, Wounded Home gives hurting families a look inside the minds and hearts of wounded warriors and guides them in developing their own personal plan for physical, emotional, and spiritual wholeness in the wake of war. The authors, one the wife of a career US Navy SEAL and the other a clinical psychologist and Vietnam veteran, speak from their own experiences of living with PTSD and TBI. They also share insights from dozens of families and careful research, offering readers a hope-filled way forward.

    Marshéle Carter Waddell and Kelly K. Orr in their new book, "Wounded Warrior, Wounded Home" published by Revell offers us Hope and Healing for Families Living with PTSD and TBI.

    From the Back Cover: Healing from war's devastating effects isn't easy-but it is possible.

    For every wounded warrior, there is a wounded home-a family and community impacted by their loved one's war experiences. Service members returning from combat deployment all bring war home with them. And when a combat veteran struggles with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and/or traumatic brain injury (TBI), every family member experiences the effects-confusion, hurt, anger, guilt, fatigue, and fear.

    Wounded Warrior, Wounded Home offers a hope-filled way forward, giving hurting families a look inside the minds and hearts of combat veterans and guiding them to develop their own plan for physical, emotional, and spiritual wholeness.

    I think everyone should read this book whether or not you have someone in the military or know someone in the military. We all need to know what PTSD and TBI are and how we deal with it. These men and women need us to stand with them and if we have no idea of what they are going through then we can't be of any help. And it just doesn't affect those in the military now it affects anyone who has ever served in the military If we know what PTSD and TBI are then we can spot it and help deal with it. It is time for healing. Let us all take a part.

    About PTSD/TBI

    1.5 million troops have fulfilled 3 million deployment billets to Iraq & Afghanistan with most service members serving at least two and some as many as nine combat tour of duty.

    Between 30-40 percent of returning veterans today show symptoms of PTSD or report conditions of TBI.

    Since 2000, over 180,00 service members have been diagnosed with TBI.

    Each service member's war experiences and injuries directly impact at least three and as many as 10 immediate family members and friends. This means that at least 4.5 million and as many as 15 million close family members and friends are deeply impacted by combat stress, PTSD and/or TBI from the war in Iraq and Afghanistan alone. This figure doesn't include the lingering effects of war on the families of WWII, the Korean War, the Vietnam War or the first Persian Gulf War veterans.

    Wounded Warrior, Wounded Home: Hope and Healing for Families Living with PTSD and TBI by Marshelle Carter Waddell and Dr. Kelly Orr

    Publisher: Revell, 2013

    Reviewer: DiscipleMom Laura Langley*

    My Rating: 5 stars out of 5

    Wounded Warrior, Wounded Heart combines research and real-life stories from military families dealing with aftermath of PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and TBI (traumatic brain injury) offering hope to families suffering from secondary post-traumatic stress.

    The book is a collaboration between Marshele Carter Waddell and Dr. Kelly Orr. Waddell's husband, CDR (ret) Mark Waddell, served as a US Navy SEAL for twenty-eight years. A combat veteran, he suffers with PTSD and several TBIs while his family deals with secondary post-traumatic stress. Dr. Kelly Orr is a USMC Vietnam veteran with more than thirty years of experience as a clinical psychologist, behavioral medicine and pain management.

    While agreeing that PTSD and TBI are destructive to homes, marriages and relationships, the authors say those affected can experience hope, healing and wholeness through biblical guidance, targeted prayer, Christian counseling services, and church and community support.

    Wounded Warrior, Wounded Home deals with topics such as grieving what has been lost, learning to forgive, dealing with anger, finding a new normal, breaking the cycle of compassion fatigue, engaging in spiritual warfare, and finding support for the journey.

    To offer help and hope to others journeying through the effects of PTSD and TBI, Waddell willingly shares from her deepest hurts. She restates a popular saying, "It's His what it is," reminding herself that God is control, and that "we can trust the gifts He gives us, even those that come wrapped in grief." The book also includes personal stories from other military families suffering from PTSD, TBI and secondary post-traumatic stress. Those touches help readers know they are not alone, and that others ahead of them in the journey are making progress.

    The authors make it clear that hope, healing and wholeness can be found, but not without dependence upon God and His Word, prayer, and the support of other believers. Relevant verses are sprinkled throughout the book, offering hope and comfort. They even address issues of spiritual warfare and its effect on PTSD and TBI.

    The book offers much practical advice, including six practices to revive our bodies, minds and spirits, and recipe for resilience using the acronym CLING. In chapter eight, I found helpful the authors' use of Psalm 23 to show the Christian community what families affected by PTSD and TBI need and how they can make a difference.

    I highly recommend Wounded Warrior, Wounded Home for anyone facing the effects of PTSD and TBI. The book offers help, hope and practical suggestions, all from a biblical perspective. Reflection questions at the end of each chapter help readers explore their feelings, process their thoughts, and deal with issues. The book also helps the general public understand how entire families and extended families are affected by post-traumatic stress and even gives suggestions in chapter eight for offering hope and help to them.

    Note: I received a copy of the book from the publisher for writing this review. However, the opinions expressed in the review are my own.
