What people think:

"I read through the battle buddy section of When War Comes Home last night. It made me so thankful that God had sent me [my battle buddy] just when I needed her. As the book indicates, [she's] someone who can set me straight when I need her to and someone who I know I can always trust.  We were able to persevere through the deployment when all we really thought we'd do was have a nervous breakdown." -- Myndee M. Reed, Hutchinson, Kan.

"I've been using When War Comes Home in a support group for wives and family members of combat veterans, and I highly recommend this manual. It provides information and support to family members and is a tool to help stop the unraveling of military families. As a wife of a Vietnam Vet who battled the war after the war -- PTSD -- I felt like When War Comes Home was written about my life and was a tremendous healing experience for me." -- Karen Blehm, wife of a Vietnam veteran and PTSD sufferer

"When War Comes Home is very relevant to a reality I live. It speaks truth and is a pathway for the Lord to bring complete healing and freedom." -- Heather Zoellner, Women on the Homefront co-facilitator
