After going through the God Strong book and having my first encounter with my Survival Sister, Sara Horn has been a great addition to my library…well her book anyway. When I found out she was coming out with a new bible study and after reading the title, “Tour of Duty: Preparing Our Hearts for Deployment.” -I knew I had to get it.
The Bible Study for Military Wives: Tour of Duty has seven chapters, extra helps, and my favorite a Leader’s Guide. After a quick review of the chapters and reading all of the Leader’s guide section, it is of no surprise how excited I am to start a bible study in my home.
I, myself, am going through my first deployment and even as a seasoned military wife; deployment is still a challenge and with this study; I feel she hits all the right notes. The layout is easy to look over, the checklists and tips are great, each chapter has word recognition that draws me in.
The bible verses (though I prefer KJV) are marked in NIV, NASB, and some are NKJV. I do like that not all the verses are fully marked, some just give the bible verse location, which then makes me look into my bible and find my verse. I feel that’s a great bible study book, when it makes you research your own bible. It’s really a great bible study.
Thank you Sara Horn and I can’t wait to start the bible study with my fellow military wives during this deployment! I know this will be a huge blessing for us.
