More Than Meets the Eye

By Carrie Daws


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 He’s withdrawn, moody, and can’t sleep.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?

Book Takeaway:

God is trustworthy, even when we don't understand what He is doing.

Why the author wrote this book:

Tragedy hits everyone's life in one way or another, and sometimes it looks like God isn't paying attention, doesn't care, or isn't powerful enough to change things. This story based on a real-life military family discusses how God is paying attention, but that His plan is bigger than what most of us consider.
