I am excited to share with you a book review of Tour of Duty Preparing Our Hearts for Deployment by Sara Horn. Since becoming an Army wife in 2005, I am always on the lookout for a good book about our life & how to get through it. I was excited to see Sara Horn had come out with a new devotional book on deployment.
Deployments are such a part of our military lives but getting through one can be very difficult sometimes.
I have been through 2 deployments and I felt like this book touched on so many of the thoughts & feelings I have experienced during the separations. Included in each chapter are verses, questions and even “Tips for Military Wives.” I think this book would be an awesome Bible study and would love to do it with a group of ladies someday.
I also will be rereading this again when we start our next deployment. There were some parts that I read where I knew it would be very helpful to go back and read during the middle of a deployment. The chapter called “Facing the Giants” especially as it deals with those what ifs or worries we all seem to go through when our husband is deployed.
Another thing I really liked about this book is her comparisons to biblical characters and what they have gone through in their lives. It makes you realize that although our struggles might have looked different, they dealt with a lot of the same emotions we might deal with right now.
One more small thing, I really really liked the cover of this book. Something about the pink on the green 🙂
The book has a Facebook page and you can buy the book from Lifeway 🙂
I received a free copy of this book from Sara Horn for this review!
