Deployment changed him, and she doesn’t know if she can live with it.

After her husband returns from a deployment to Saudi Arabia, Lori Braxton begins noticing little differences in his behavior. He’s withdrawn, moody, and can’t sleep. Could it be the stress of military life after the 9/11 attack on New York? Maybe it’s the new assignment in Montana or the financial problems he ignores. Perhaps it’s forces she can’t see and doesn’t know how to fight, or maybe she’s a bigger part of the problem than she wants to admit

What is God doing? Is He even paying attention?

Lori tries to attend church and do what God asks, but the truth is she doesn’t really hear Him speak. Between money strains, pregnancy hormones, and young ones underfoot, Lori spirals into depression.

What good could God possibly bring from the mess surrounding her?

This book is a wonderful and real story about life as a spouse in the Air Force. Even as someone who’s never been in the military, I could relate to Lori’s hurts, doubts and questions. Her growing faith through the story brought me with her and allowed me to look at my life and grow with her.

Whether you are a seasoned or brand new military spouse, you will probably be able to relate to some of Lori’s struggles as she works through the different seasons of life the military throws at her in “More Than Meets the Eye”. Visits to the ER with a sick little one, husband having difficulties at work, financial strains, & moves forcing you to step out of your comfort zone, in more ways than one, are just some of the areas she touches on in this true story of a family doing their best to put their trust in God as they navigate the life they’ve been called to. This book will be an encouragement to you as it reminds you that God is in control and instead of avoiding Him or trying to figure it out all on your own, you just need to turn to Him and put your hope and trust in Him alone. This story may even cause you to pause and reflect on those rougher days of military life that you’ve experienced, like Lori has, and how you’ve seen God at work in you as you walked it out with Him leading.
