A Series for Families

Military families face unique situations that many in the civilian world will never confront. Long separations due to deployments, and uprooting households every few years can impact the entire family and influence children through every phase of life. Defending the Military Family takes time-tested principles and spurs group and couple discussion. It is a practical way to gain insights into how to deal with issues raising children while serving in the armed forces.


Defending the Military Family

Quest: A month-long journal for children ages 6-10 to use during a parents deployment.

A Series for Couples

From her first day in Seoul, Korea, author Beatrice Fishback quickly discovered that her fairy tale military marriage was indeed just a romantic ideal. As a result of constant separations, multiple moves and three overseas assignments, she and her husband, Jim, found themselves approaching a marital impasse and ultimately, isolation. In this ten-part study, she encourages wives to love their husbands by applying the advice Paul gives in Philippians 4:8 to focus on whatever is true, honorable, righteous, lovely, of good repute, excellent, and worthy of praise.
