Not My Ways
United States Navy
Everything looked normal until the moment of birth.
Jeff Etheridge leaves the U.S. Navy to marry Kumi and attend seminary. Finances are tight, so he joins the Reserves to add needed income and finds a job that works around school hours. He and Kumi rejoice as the birth of their first child approaches, but their world crashes around them with Mika’s first breath. Doctors fight to give their daughter life while Jeff and Kumi pray for God’s healing provision. Life settles into a routine despite Mika’s chronic conditions, and God continues to add blessings around them.
But God whispers about returning to life in the Navy.
Jeff thinks it’s a ridiculous idea as he doesn’t want to leave his family, but for the first time in her life, Kumi believes it’s the right choice. Desperate for Chaplains, the Navy processes Jeff back into active service. As the family settles in at their first duty station, terrorists attack U.S. soil.
Could God bring them peace and contentment, even amid the uncertainty surrounding them?
