Today is Memorial Day, and on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, military wife and co-author of The 5 Love Languages, Military Edition and Faith Deployed: Daily Encouragement for Military Wives, Jocelyn Green joins us to help us understand a little better the hard road that military families walk and how to pray for these families.
Most of us live without thinking about tragic or catastrophic events until they happen to us. Today, we are living in unprecedented times of physical, emotional and spiritual battles with fear, anxiety and uncertainty that can take a toll on our bodies, minds and souls. On Monday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte Lt. Col Dave Grossman joins us to talk about his book, On Spiritual Combat, a spiritual warfare guide that includes powerful readings, encouraging Scripture, meaningful hymns and questions for reflection that prepares us to fight the battles we encounter.
Overlooking the Hudson River on the campus of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point are 12 granite benches, each inscribed with a word representing a key leadership virtue: compassion, courage, dedication, determination, dignity, discipline, integrity, loyalty, perseverance, responsibility, service, and trust. In his book, Character Carved in Stone, Pat Williams, senior vice president of the Orlando Magic, shares the incredible stories of West Point graduates who exemplified these traits, from the Civil War to the War on Terror. Join Mornings with Eric and Brigitte to hear Pat talk about how readers of all backgrounds can develop these 12 essential virtues in their lives.
