it was amazing
bookshelves: christian-nonfiction, military
Read from June 18 to August 10, 2012 , read count: 1

What a great book! It's encouraging to me as a military spouse, but also teaching me so much -- about history, about the internal strength God gave to military spouses and about myself. I definitely recommend this to anyone who is a military spouse or to anyone who wants to understand the heart of a warrior's bride better.
