French Indian War through the Wars in Irag and Afghanistan
This devotional book contains 365 true stories of struggles, courage, and actions of women, children, and men involved in the home front of American wars, in chronological order, from the French Indian War through the current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. These stories illustrate effective prayers, heroism, volunteer efforts, and daily courage. Special weekend devotions consist of original words from a journal, newspaper, letter, or newspaper, and glimpses into life during that era, such as fashion, pastimes, work, and celebrations. Each story includes a coordinated Scripture and a prayer for today’s military, families, or individuals encountering struggles.
The book represents hundreds of years of history that up until now has gone largely unnoticed and uncelebrated. While generations have gone to war, those who stayed behind were the backbones holding them up. Stories of Faith and Courage from the Home Front captures the fascinating and inspiring history of the heroes at home, from the very foundation of our nation up until the present day.
