Thriving Bible Study

Deployment perspectives for today’s military families

OCF's Thriving Not Just Surviving: Deployment Perspectives for Today’s Military Families book has something for everyone facing the unique challenges of military deployments and the harsh reality of war.  

Combining subject-specific Scriptures and timeless encouragement from God’s Word, Thriving Not Just Surviving contains the stories and tips from ordinary people living lives of hope and purpose above their circumstances. In daily, purposed pursuit of their relationship with Jesus Christ and His truth, they have found life’s only key to truly thriving and not just surviving.

"Could I really stand and say, 'God is good' if [my husband] had been one of the pilots killed?"

While many stories are from the home front spouse, other angles of perspectives include those from the front lines and also:

  • Grandparents becoming parents again 
  • Military parents experiencing their son’s deployments
  • Chaplains shepherding the front line warriors 

Thriving Not Just Surviving is available through OCF for $10 each (plus shipping) or $6 each when purchasing 10 or more.

An accompanying Thriving Bible study is available as a free download. Written by two contributing authors to the Thriving Not Just Surviving book, this Bible study is primarily for wives. It is designed to work well as a PWOC study, in a home Bible study, or as material for a ladies retreat.
