Faraway lands, fear, and faith—Ruth paves the way for our story.
One day when author and military spouse Jessica Manfre was reading the book of Ruth, she had an epiphany. Ruth is the story of every military spouse.
In the book of Ruth, we witness a woman's brave journey—one of loss, loneliness, and loyalty. A story of love and faith. Does that sound familiar? These are the hallmarks of the military life. While our lives are fraught with heartache and sacrifice, that isn't the whole of our stories. Ruth is a hero that has gone before us, offering encouragement and strength. Through her, we witness the beauty of hope and share in the healing power of friendship. We discover that even when all seems lost and completely hopeless, we are Never Alone. God is always with us. And He's leading us through our own story of redemption. He's restoring the hardships and healing the wounds of despair. He's transforming our pain and building our trust. Even when we're wandering in a faraway, foreign land, He is not lost and has not lost us.
Join Jessica in studying a story that was meant for you. Jessica explores topics like the fundamental need for connection through clinical implications, preparing your heart for loss (she writes from experience), friendship, and much more.
This resource is for every military spouse who desires to strengthen relationships, live in authentic community, and walk with God.
