Eight Studies for Warriors in Need

The warrior’s life is difficult to understand if you haven’t lived it, and difficult to live with if you have. The God Understands series doesn’t hold back on the strengths or the struggles, and it offers God’s hope, wisdom, and peace for warriors in need.

If you or someone you know has challenges associated with Military life, explore these eight studies and find empathy and connection in the stories of other Service members and Veterans with relatable experiences. Then, read through each chapter to learn about God’s understanding and grace.

How It Works

Each God Understands study gets to the heart of a topic Service members often face, featuring stories of fellow warriors who’ve been in your boots and came out the other side. Each study has 3-5 chapters, offering relevant lessons from the Old and New Testament, plus guided quiet time to reflect and pray.

“The God Understands series...is the best resource around on post-combat spiritual reintegration. I see copies at most Chaplain offices I visit. Thank you for your ministry.”

ABOUT GOD
UNDERSTANDS

Defending this nation as a member of the American military is the ultimate act of servant leadership. It’s a warrior’s job, performed by men and women who choose to step into the breach and risk everything for our freedom, our way of life, and the fellow warrior standing beside them. Serving is an honor, but it’s also a costly profession.

God Understands is a place to begin processing the weight of that cost. We offer stories of Veterans and Military members who’ve been through the worst of it and have come out the other side meaningfully healed. We also offer Scripture that connects directly to the specific issues our Veterans and Military members are dealing with now.

Don't go it alone.
