Product description...

A Military Devotional and Bible Study for Warriors with a Story

Clay Lifto knows what it’s like to be a soldier. In Book 2 of Only a Soldier Understands, he continues the journey past basic training into the next phase of the adventure. With his trademark warmth and candor, Clay shares his story in 38 short anecdotes, covering ground that will resonate with readers. Topics include adjusting to being away from family, gaining respect among peers, finding success after failure, feeling lonely, moving to new places, and discovering women. It’s about breakthroughs and dead ends, excitement and frustration. As Clay’s stories bring back memories of your own experience, each anecdote ends with a series of thought-provoking questions designed to allow reflection on your personal experience. This book is for the new recruit, the career soldier, and the veteran. It’s for anyone who has served in the military—and it’s a great book to share with friends, to exchange stories and thoughts. You don’t even need to read it in chronological order…the Table of Contents provides detailed guidance if you’d like to target a specific area of your career. And if you enjoy this book, look forward to Books 3 and 4, coming soon.
