by Nancy B. Kennedy
In Miracles and Moments of Grace: Inspiring Stories from Military Chaplains, seasoned author Nancy B. Kennedy brings together stories that touch the heart, with inspiring messages drawn from the day-to-day lives of our nation's soldiers.
This collection of compelling first-person stories comes from the many military chaplains who are eyewitnesses to amazing displays of divine intervention, whether in small moments of grace or through events experienced as miracles. Telling stories that range from the simple joy of a Christmas party for deployed service members to the intervention of a chaplain talking down a suicidal soldier, this book makes it clear: military chaplains are tough, on a mission to face some of the darkest moments of the human experience and bring the light of faith with them.
Whether you are in the military yourself, a family member, or simply a reader seeking inspiration about the work God does even in gritty circumstances, this book will introduce you to people worth knowing. These chaplains put their lives on the line to minister to souls all over the world; their stories can open your eyes and lift your spirits. "It is my privilege here," writes Nancy, "to tell the stories of these dedicated men and women entrusted with the spiritual well-being of our country's armed forces. God bless them, and through them, you."
