When I read the book Almost There by Bekah DiFelice thee were many emotions running through my mind.  I served in the Army on Active duty for over six years, and I saw many young military spouses struggle.  They were struggling with being away from home for the first time, their spouse being deployed, etc.  Military spouses are truly the unsung heroes of the United States.

In the book Bekah is honest about her struggles.  She discusses the loneliness she felt during her husband’s deployment, how infrequent communication with her husband made her feel, and a struggling to regain a sense of normalcy when he came home.

During those hard times when it seemed she was at the end of her rope she discussed how she reached out to God.  She discusses how it is ok to struggle, it is ok to question, and doubts are a normal part of the Christian life.  She discusses how through these trials and periods of questioning that our faith grows to new heights.

I recommend this book because it contains questions that we all have dealt with at one time or another.  We all have experienced loneliness.  We all have experienced doubt, and we all have struggled in our faith.  Bekah does a great job of exploring these issues in her own life, and encourages others who are experiencing them now.
