Have you ever wanted to read the Bible but didn't know where to start? What should I study? Who will help me? Making it through the Bible is a challenge, but it's worth it. That's what E100 is all about.

The Essential 100 Challenge (the E100) is a new way to read through the Bible, using carefully selected Bible passages - 50 from the Old Testament and 50 from the New Testament. You'll get the big picture without getting bogged down.

By registering, you will have access to all these tools and more; simply complete the Start Your Journey form to the right and you'll be on your way to start, and finish, the E100 challenge. See you on the trail!

Knowing that best journeys are often shared journeys, the Group Discussion Guide is a great tool to help facilitate a weekly small group study based on the E100 readings for that week. Each of the 20 sessions contains several questions that help leaders guide their team members into a deeper investigation, both individually and corporately, of the Scripture. The booklet contains instructions for leading a small group and is therefore usable by both Chaplain and lay-led groups.

Instead, through squarely addressing the challenges you face, Faith Deployed will equip you to respond biblically to the daily struggles that threaten to wear you down.

As husbands are being deployed multiple times, the women left behind desperately need encouragement and strength to maintain the home-front.  Often lonely, frequently overwhelmed by the needs around her, and continually stressed by a unique lifestyle, she needs to be equipped as to how to respond biblically to the daily struggles that threaten to wear her down. 

Faith Deployed...Again:  More Daily Encouragement for Military Wives is filled with wisdom and insight from over twenty-five Christian wives, representing every branch of the military, and explores how the Bible relates to a variety of topics and issues - including those that arise with post-deployment – encountered in a military marriage.   Each devotional is based on the unchanging character of God and the anchor we have in Jesus Christ offering encouragement, strength, community, and hope to the heroes at home.

God + Military Spouse
United our families will stand 
   Author: Kathleen Cline, Copyright @ 2008

When the Iraq war first broke out there was ramped support for the military but as time went on personal support dwindled. Yet given the extended tour of duty, support became increasingly necessary to help women and their children get through long deployments and absences of husbands and fathers. As the wife of a Navy man, Kathleen Cline discovered that while there are many helpful books for women, there were none specifically for military wives and the particular challenges they face. During her overseas tour she also learned the importance of the Naval Chapel and the support it gives to military families. At the last three duty stations she volunteered at the Naval Chapel, teaching children church, leading womans Bible study and helping to organize VBS. Now, due to the war, the Naval Chapels focus must be on the active duty member which has left a gap of Biblical education for the family members. God + Military Spouse is the result of this need, and Kathleen Cline is qualified to offer it. From predeployment anxiety, to loneliness, depression and even temptation, God + Military Spouse is the support group manual for military wives and study groups who are serious about preserving the treasure of marriage and family. 


God Strong
The military wife's spiritual survival guide
Author: Sara Horn, Copyright 2010

As a military wife, caring for your home and family is a mission that never stops. You want to support your husband while he serves, but you often wonder if you have what it takes. As someone who has been through this herself, Sara Horn will remind you with encouraging spiritual insights that you don't have to be an army of one when you are God Strong.

Currently, more than one million military wives care for their families and their homes, often while their husbands are deployed out of state or overseas for months at a time. These women can experience a roller coaster of emotions including disappointment, loneliness, and fear. Sara Horn, the wife of a navy reservist, understands the challenges these women face. She knows how to talk about faith and spiritual truths through the filter of military life. In her encouraging book, Horn shares her personal stories, as well as wisdom and anecdotes of other wives from all branches of service. She reminds readers that: * God is in control. * You can have joy, no matter what. * Superwomen get grace, too. * God knows where you hurt. Horn's reliance on Scripture and confidence in God's comfort during difficult times will remind military wives they don't have to be an army of one when they are God Strong.

Thank you for your interest in GOD Strong: A Military Wife’s Spiritual Survival Guide! I am so excited to share this book with you – it is definitely a culmination of everything God has laid on my heart over the last few years to share with military wives.

As you read through the book, you may want to take some extra time to dig deeper into what God says about being strong, and also spend some moments really thinking through what God is trying to teach you about relying on His strength. The individual guide I’ve prepared for you is a very simple but I hope encouraging tool that will help you do those things. Each chapter has been divided into a week, with 5 days of book reading assignments, Scripture reading, and journal prompts.


Hope for the Home Front
Winning the emotional and spiritual battles of a military wife 
Author: Marshele Carter Waddell, Copyright @ 2003 

Military wives are entrenched at home in the battle for their marriages, their children, their faith, and their sanity, which are all caught in the cross fire.

A seasoned military wife, Marshele Carter Waddell arms other military wives with God's promises of power and protection. In her warm and personable style, she recounts many of her own family stories: a call to duty interrupting
a romantic dinner, watching her husband disappear into a submarine not to return home for months, and being far away from family during her father's illness and death.

For wives serving on the home front, burdens of fear, loneliness, anger, disappointment, temptation, single parenting, and separation from loved ones may easily rob them of the joy of following God's calling for their
families. Hope for the Home Front provides Scriptural promises, tested advice, and compassionate support. "We have a firm anchor," Waddell reminds readers: "our faith in an unchanging God whose promises never fail."

In Our Shoes
Real life issues for ministers' wives by ministers' wives
Authors: Rachel Lovingood and Jennifer Landrith, Copyright @ 2009 

In Our Shoes is an 8-topic study for personal enrichment or a guide to build discussion and interactions with a group of ministers' wives. It includes tips for navigating transitions to new churches, leader guidance for 8 group sessions, a group covenant, and ideas and recipes for entertaining at the drop of a hat.

One size fits all doesn't translate for shoes-and it doesn't for ministers' wives either. If you serve in ministry you've encountered many Bible studies, full of truth but lacking the life issues that wives in ministry face. This study was designed and written by ministers' wives who know just what it's like to walk in your shoes.

Note: Operation We Are Here included this book as a resource for military chaplain spouses. While there are differences between the chaplain spouse and minister's wife, there are also similarities, and it is our hope that this book would be an encouragement to the many military chaplain spouses who serve alongside their husband.)


Loving Your Military Man
      Author: Bea Fishback, Copyright @ 2007

A small-group study designed to help military wives love their husbands. 

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. Bea shows how to help build lifelong marriages that leave strong, stable legacies for their children and grandchildren. 


Making Your Marriage Deployment Ready
Homebuilders couples
        Authors: Mike and Linda Montgomery, Keith and Sharon Morgan, Copyright @ 2008

Divorce rates among military families are at epidemic proportions with repeated deployments and the normal challenges of military life taking their toll. The most vulnerable victims of family stress are military children. Many of the solutions to family unity are spiritual in nature. Making Your Marriage Deployment Ready is an important part of a ministry to establish Hope on the Home Front and give families the faith and knowledge of Jesus Christ.

Making Your Marriage Deployment Ready uses time tested marriage principles and prepares military couples with the necessary tools to counter deployment challenges and bring hope and victory to active duty, Guard and Reserve families. It is the definitive small group Bible study for preparing a couple to live victoriously despite the stresses of deployments and today’s demanding military lifestyle.


Moving on After Moving In (Operation Hope by Just Moved)
http://just-moved.org
Operation Hope for the uprooted military family will donate a complete Moving On After Moving In study to any military chapel that will supply a facilitator (usually a military spouse who understands the need). The package includes the 7-disc DVD Teaching Series, a Facilitator’s Guide, and 7 copies of Susan Miller’s book, After the Boxes are Unpacked.

Our goal is to place the study in 150 military chapels worldwide at a cost of $350 each. All donations are welcome, and when you donate $350 or more, you become a sponsor for a military chapel and will be offered specific ways to pray for the women and families there.


Olive Drab Pom-Poms
  Author: Kori Yates, Copyright @ 2011
Link to download small group Bible study guide

Military wives spend years, or even a lifetime, cheering for and supporting their man in uniform. It is a challenging and sometimes overwhelming task. At times, we get caught up in the day-to-day job of simple survival and forget that God has much more planned for us.

Author Kori Yates is one of those military wives. In Olive Drab Pom-Poms, she challenges women in her position to seek God's calling in their lives. She guides military wives-and military wives-to-be-in how to find their place in their husband's world. Readers will learn how to face challenges, their own and others', using God's help each step of the way. And there will be challenges; in a sometimes-uncertain world of the military, that is one definite fact.

Olive Drab Pom-Poms helps military wives stand in unquestionable support of the men they love, serving as cheerleaders, while recognizing that God intends more for them than standing on the sidelines of their husband's career. He has a plan for their lives, and Olive Drab Pom-Poms will help readers discover what He wants for you as you experience life as a real military wife.


Raising Responsive Children
A Bible study for moms
        Author: Judy Rossi, Copyright @ 2008

Raising Responsive Children is written for all moms--married moms, divorced moms, widowed moms, moms who have never married--whose kids are any age. Throughout the twelve lessons in Raising Responsive Children, you'll study God as a parent—your Parent. You'll examine your relationship with Him and compare it to His relationship with His Son; you'll make the connection between His precepts and parameters for you and how they impact your own parental responsibilities; and finally, you'll compare and contrast your parenting techniques with His, and where necessary, realign yours to meet His standard. (Not specifically a military Bible study, however, I have included it as Judy Rossi is the wife of a retired Colonel in the U.S. Army.)


The Combat Trauma Healing Manual
Christ-centered solutions for combat trauma
Author: Rev. Chris Adsit, Copyright @ 2007
Available through www.militaryministry.org

The Combat Trauma Healing Manual offers spiritual solutions for struggles with PTSD by helping construct an environment that will give God optimal access to the wounded soul. Designed for individual or group study, the Combat Trauma Healing Manual combines the latest insights of the medical and counseling communities with the timeless principles of God’s Word. The book outlines a step-by-step program that will help PTSD sufferers…
  • Understand your trauma – spiritually, psychologically and physiologically
  • Adopt therapeutic spiritual disciplines to bring you closer to God
  • Process your loss and grief
  • Experience the freeing influence of giving and receiving forgiveness
  • Rebuild your identity based on what God says about you
  • Strengthen yourself spiritually against future attacks
  • Connect with those who will support you in many ways
  • Define plans to fully reintegrate into society as a strengthened man or woman of God

From the Introduction
The reality of war is that everyone gets wounded. Some wounds heal rapidly, but some last for a lifetime. The reality is that the wounds of heart, soul and spirit have a spiritual component that is not being adequately addressed. Despite the valiant efforts of many organizations and the commitment of billions of dollars to address these issues, there remains a serious gap – the faith gap.
Major General Robert F. Dees, US Army (Retired), Executive Director, Military Ministry

From the Prologue
My family and I thought leaving the Army would remove me from the dangers of war. I had survived war and had come home, safe at last. Now I could focus on being a parent and a husband. But upon leaving the Army, I entered a different kind of fight: the war for my own heart and mind. I went face-to-face with my memories, with the horrors and stresses of combat-and lost.

Questions and doubts ravaged my mind: Why did I survive and my men die? Why did they send me there? Why does God allow such terrible wars to happen? Why can’t I feel anything? 
Ashamed of the man I had become and unable to reconcile war, I reached a breaking point. I was highly praised and decorated for leadership under fire-yet I anguished in the aftermath of war. I realized I was about to lose everything: my marriage, my family, even my life. I had led a daring rescue mission and found myself in dire need of rescuing. I had fought to keep a promise-to never leave a fallen comrade-but who would keep that promise to me?
Former Captain Nathan Self, US Army Rangers

Thriving, Not Just Surviving
Deployment perspectives for today's military families (Bible study)

When you hear the word deployment, what other words come to mind? Demanding, exhausting, lonely? Opportunity, growth, learning? Maybe you're telling yourself (as the children's game goes) "Can't go over it, can't go under it, can't go around it. We'll have to go through it!" The question is, who will go through it with you?

The highly personal stories in Thriving, Not Just Surviving tell of a Savior who is willing to go through your spouse's deployment with you. These stories cover a wide range of experiences common to all spouses of deployed service members, regardless of branch, rank, or spiritual maturity. We have chosen to focus on the stories which fit best with these eleven lessons, but we encourage you to read the whole book. Each story contains golden nuggets of truth. The study questions are designed to help you apply the authors' insights to your own situation and go deeper with God.

There is a Savior who wants to go on this journey with you. He is strong and wise. He knows the path you must take. Hold tightly to His hand. 


Tour of Duty
Preparing our hearts for deployment

Click here to locate a study group

Tour Of Duty is the only actual Bible study for military wives in the marketplace. There are a few trade books, but not a comprehensive study. Participants will join together with others who have a common thread, husbands who are being or have been deployed. This study helps wives deal with the emotional twists and turns they may not be ready to face. It will point them to God, and participants will learn how to lean on God and not carry so much of the weight that is so often placed on them. These women will learn to practically find their hope in Christ alone. 

Military families like to be prepared—they plan, they strategize, they organize. But whether they’re active, National Guard, or Reserve, when deployment comes, all the planning in the world can still fail when it comes to their hearts. 

Tour Of Duty is the only available Bible study for this specific group of women, and it’s an excellent starting point for military wives to get connected with others in the military community who share this common thread. Women facing deployment can learn how to lean on God and come out of it confident in the knowledge that God is with them, He loves them, and He has not abandoned them. 

This study with weekly homework can be done individually, but it is better suited for a group setting where women can discuss their personal experiences. 

Sessions: 7 Chapters (8 group sessions) 
  • Chapter 1 The Road Less Traveled 
  • Chapter 2 Walking on Water
  • Chapter 3 Embracing the Detours
  • Chapter 4 The Desert of Enough
  • Chapter 5 Mountain for One
  • Chapter 6 Facing the Giants
  • Chapter 7 This Is Your Time

Extra Bonus Material: 
  • The Emotional and Spiritual Stages of Deployment
  • For Churches: Ministering to Military Families

Discover the grace and wisdom to be the military wife God desires

Author: Ester Johnson, Copyright @ 2010

Dive into Scripture and look at the good, the questionable, and the bad choices women connected with the military made during biblical times. Michal, Abigail, Bathsheba, Deborah, and other figures offer powerful and relevant examples for military wives to study and to learn from. While it is true that women face enormous challenges as their husbands serve in the nation’s armed forces, God always gives these unsung heroes the wisdom and grace needed to please Him.

Our military courses were written by a retired Navy Chaplain who understands your challenges, and your commitment. He understands the military. He spent much of his life there. When you enroll in Winning the Battle of Life, we will be there to help you through the materials. You will have an instructor that will be there to answer your questions, to help you get on target. We will correspond with you and encourage you as well as pray for you and your family. 

The Bible contains God's "Standard Operating Procedures" for us. The Bible contains our "Rules of Engagement." The Bible is not just one book but is a compellation of 66 books written over a period of about sixteen hundred years. The Bible is the Word of God. 

Did you ever wonder, Who is God? What is He like? How do I get to know Him? How do I live a life that pleases God? How can I know what God wants me to do with my life? What does the word "God" mean? Where is God? How much does God know? Does He really understand all the problems I have? What promises does He have for me? Am I accountable to Him? 

Did you ever wonder, Who is Man? What does God think of me? How important am I to Him? How much am I worth? What does God think about my life - my track record? What does it mean that I am a sinner? What are the consequences of my sin? What will happen to me when I die? Where will I go? These are just some of the questions that are answered in the first booklet you will receive when you enroll in Winning the Battle of Life Bible correspondence course for the military. All courses are free. We even have free courses for your spouse and children. 

We look forward to hearing from you and studying the Bible with you. Your lessons will come by mail. You do not need a computer or access to anything but a pencil and a Bible.
