This is such a heartfelt post!! I hope you don't mind, but I tweeted it! And by the way, my hubs is from CA and I am from NY and we are always fussing about the way the other talks – even after 13 years! I say he has an accent and I don't!!

Haha, I'm from CA, and my Hubby is a mil brat, us Californian's don't have accents, we simply have unique slang ;).
For me what encourages me during deployment are not only my sisters in Christ, but my sisters in arms and in Christ. For us to be able to gather together and discuss Bible study, no particular verse, but God's word in general truly helps me. I'm not certain if it's simply the conversation with people older than 3 or the conversation topic, but that's what helps me the most.

What encourages me most is being able to talk with friends who are going through the same things I am. Those friendships mean so much and are a godsend to me.
Since this is my first time as a mom for my son to deploy I have clung to so many different verses. one of my favorites is from the book of Job. By his light I walked through darkness! Job 29:3 especially at the beginning of his deployment. Being able to connect with wives of soldiers has been a big help for me. You all are dear to me heart!
LOL, I had to do a double take… my high school prom date (who is currently in the military) has a wife named Jocelyn Green, and it turns out to be the same one who wrote the book! What a small world.
I get most of my courage from the mantra "Put one foot in front of the other." I'll repeat it over and over, whether I mean that literally or metaphorically. I also keep in close touch with my family. Even though they have never experienced the military lifestyle, they are quick to help and are always there to listen.
