Loving Your Military Man Small Group Study
From her first day in Seoul, Korea, author Bea Fishback quickly discovered the fairy tale marriage she expected was indeed just a fairy tale. Her Prince Charming, an Army officer, would regularly disappear for field maneuvers and TDYs. As a result of this and other pressures, they found themselves approaching a marital impasse and ultimately isolation. Bea began to overcome this isolation 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. In this ten-part study, she encourages military wives to love their husbands in this way.
