Medals Above My Heart is a devotional for military wives. The husbands of these authors wear their medals on their uniforms, but these ladies will share experiences of military life and reveal the medals they wear over their own hearts.Like the wives of great military leaders of the past, present day military wives experience challenges that stretch their physical, emotional, and spiritual resources. While it is an honor to serve her soldier, airman, marine, or sailor as he defends the freedom of America, it is not without sacrifice. They receive no medals from their country but receive a reward greater than any medal. They reap the benefits of personal character and leadership development, adventure, relationships, and opportunities for service.
