The call came down from Command, and your warrior husband is out the door, leaving you behind to handle whatever he has left undone. Whether it�s the day-to-day monotony, the inevitable appliance that breaks, or the months without his presence beside you, being a military spouse brings challenges few appreciate. Yet God sees you and longs for you to boldly step into His plan. He purposely chose you for this moment�for your man. He wants to give you abundantly more than what you have right now and desires you to thrive as your warrior�s bride.

Reviewed by Rich Follett for Readers' Favorite The Warrior’s Bride by Kathy Barnett and Carrie Daws is a Christ-centered, scripturally based training and support manual for military wives. In a series of alternating testimonials written in an easy-to-read, conversational style, Barnett and Daws offer encouragement and guidance tailored specifically to military wives and based on significant Bible verses and scriptural teachings, all infused with the overarching message that God must be in the mix for a marriage to survive the stresses and trials of military life. Barnett and Daws freely share their own experiences and perspectives, offering hope, advice, and scripture-inspired spiritual guidance in equal measure. The Warrior’s Bride is chock-full of hard-won wisdom applicable to such diverse topics as helplessness, depression, crises of faith, infidelity, fear of death, coping with stress, the threat of divorce, and negative influences from pornography to peer pressure. By choosing to tell their own stories with complete candor and by relating each chapter to specific, time-tested verses of scripture, Barnett and Daws establish a solid ‘you can trust me’ foundation which allows the text to read like a privileged conversation rather than a run-of-the-mill self-help treatise. The Warrior’s Bride is aptly subtitled Biblical Strategies to Help the Military Spouse Survive. It is exactly what its apt title suggests: a no-nonsense, from-the-heart spiritual toolkit for military wives whose marriages are threatened daily by forces conventional spouses can only imagine. The Warrior’s Bride is filled with the particular warmth and caring that only a manuscript written as a gift can engender. From first word to last, it is clear that the authors earnestly wish to bring hope and comfort to their readers. In keeping with this selfless dynamic, much of the text offers insight and inspiration applicable to civilian marriages as well. The Warrior’s Bride by Kathy Barnett and Carrie Daws is an uplifting, deeply nurturing gift for the soul-weary and faith challenged, offering hope and renewal for women - and men - from all walks of life.

WHAT A WONDERFUL BOOK !!!!! Thank you Carrie Daws and kathy Barnett !!! This is so helpful and informative, and certainly not for just the military husbands and wives !!! Personal touches made this so real, and the reader knew their feelings are real and someone understood, and that is so needed by so many... Touching on subjects that a lot of people don't understand will help all to see clearly and be able to put these suggestions in there daily life. Knowing there is heartache, but also knowing you have support for those feelings will help one get through tough times...sometimes that is all you need. This is truly a must read!!! I am not a military wife, but grew up in a military home where my dad was in the navy. Mom struggled, so us children struggled some, she tried her hardest to make life easy...but i can remember her crying in bed at night, dad would be gone such a long time. I guess back then there wasn't a lot of support. This book is the support that is needed... A WEALTH OF INFORMATION. Making sure God is in your life is top priority and they show you the how and why !!!! Personal experiences made it real, so the understanding and help they gave is real, tried and true !!!! Read this book, you will use it in your everyday life, military wife or not !! I was given this book for my honest opinion ... and this is a WONDERFUL FEEL GOOD READ !!!!!!

Wow, Must Read! Whether your marriage is a fairy-tale perfect or falling to pieces, this book is for you! Caution: Not an easy read! This book will not 'tickle your ears' and may, at times, make you downright mad but it is TRUTH for every bride...especially a warrior's bride. Kathy and Carrie open their lives and hearts in ways most would not be willing to do. They speak hard truths that you may not want to hear, but then show you how to take your failures and mistakes, those 'ashes of your life' and exchange them for the beauty God has for you. I was provided this book by the authors in exchange for my review, but rest assured, as soon as the book is available in paperback I will be purchasing several copies to share!
