Strengthening Military Marriages

Congratulations to Lt. Col. Tony and Penny Monetti on today's release of  their new book, Honored to Serve: Guidance and Encouragement for Military Families in Transition.





Lt. Col. Tony and Penny Monetti know the difficulties and transitions of military life. I can say this, because I watched them. The Monetti's attended our church during the Gulf War when Tony was stationed at Griffiss Air Force Base in Rome, NY. My husband had the honor of baptizing both Tony and Penny.

The day Tony left for Desert Storm is etched in my mind. I could not imagine my husband going to war and leaving me alone to raise our family. For Tony and Penny, this was their life.

My review: "Powerful! Practical! Personal! Tony and Penny Monetti know the difficulties and transitions of military life, and point you to the God Who goes before you and stays with you in the battle for your marriage, your children, and your country. Learn from their experiences how to be a person of honor, integrity, and valor maintaining physical, mental, and spiritual balance. Every couple needs to arm themselves with Honored to Serve as their survival guide for military families in transition." ~ Elaine W. Miller, Author and Speaker

From the back cover:

"IT IS A RARE SORT OF VALOR THAT CAUSES SOLDIERS AND THEIR FAMILIES TO SACRIFICE FOR THEIR COUNTRY. THEY LIVE LIVES PUNCTUATED WITH UNCERTAINTY TO DEFEND THE CAUSE OF FREEDOM.

Tony and Penny Monetti have known this uncertainty. "In 24 years of military service we deployed for war. We experienced the fear of combat against an enemy and mustered the courage to fight. We refit the family puzzle pieces when their shapes changed with each mission, deployment, and reassignment."

Military families are constantly in transition, but transition does not have to be unmanageable. Honored to Serve provides tools to deal with issues such as combat-related stress, financial hardship, wounded relationships, reentry into civilian life, and more. Written from the perspectives of a military service person and a spouse, this insightful book not only encourages military families but also provides a wealth of resources for soldiers and their loved ones."
