Don’t forget to check your list of missionaries at your church for Missionaries to Ecuador! Encourage your family to pray for them and perhaps send them a note of encouragement!

Hello everyone! Time for another devotional already! How time flies! I have entitled this devotion A Vision for America, but I guess it’s actually more of a prayer list for America. I challenge you to take this list, make it your own, and pray with me for our nation. If you are outside our country, we covet your prayers, but adapt this list for your home country! And if you feel so led, drop us a note to tell us a little about the needs of your country and how we can pray for you!
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord;…”
“For where two or three are gathered together in My Name, there am I in the midst of them.”
(All Scriptures are from the King James Bible)

Hello! So yep, I forgot about this post until this morning when I saw Kassie's post and I was like, I EVEN DOUBLE CHECKED THE DATE AND I STILL FORGOT! So, my friends, here is the couple hours belated Cover Reveal XD

About the Book ||
Two brothers. Two Separate Paths.
A Navy corpsman assigned to the Marines, Jess Walker’s world is shaken as he struggles to aid the men around him. But the battlefield isn’t his hardest challenge. The nagging memory of how he lost his brother weighs on him, serving as a constant reminder of his failure. War has no mercy for anyone and Jess isn’t sure he can survive the war inside. As his world comes crashing down around him, he struggles to believe there is a future beyond the pain.
Clay Walker has moved on from the life he once lived. A successful Marine pilot, he wants nothing to do with his family and the God he left behind. Japan is on the brink of surrender when his unit is shipped off to Okinawa, and it’s there that Clay is forced to realize his past is not as deeply buried as he thought. Faced with heavy losses and questions without answers, Clay has a choice to make. Is he willing to step back and let God take the controls? Or is it too late for a second chance?
As WWII rages, the two brothers must face their demons — or be lost to the burning world around them.
About the Author ||
Jesseca is a daughter, sister, and a child of God. When she’s not busy at her full time job as a first responder, her days are spent reading, spending time with siblings, watching movies that make her cry, and playing piano. Oh, and writing, of course! At an early age words fascinated her, and her love for the printed page has only grown. She lives with her parents and seven siblings in the sunny state of Kansas, and she’s convinced there’s no place like home.
And now for that gorgeous cover!
Isn't it epic?? I just love it so much! I can't wait to snag my copy!
Have a Blessed Day!
