"My mom is my hero because she is loving. She never gives up on us. It might get stressful sometimes and trying but she is still on it taking care of the family. Another reason why my mom is my hero is because she is my all time love loving star. She works at the Pentagon and the money she gets she uses it on me. She uses the money to make sure I have shelter, clothes, food and water. My mom is my hero because she takes care of the family before herself. My mom is an awesome hero. She always does nice things for my brother, my father, grandmother and me. My mom wants me to grow up, get a job, and maybe a job in the Navy. I love my mother and my family. My mom is the best mom and she is my hero."
So proud of my military wife and mother who was recently featured in All Hands Online: Official Magazine of the U.S. Navy. http://

Originally printed in the April 2007 edition of The Voice.
"Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. Amen."
Our nation has troops all over the world, from Cuba to Korea, Afghanistan to Iraq. Whether or not you support military operations abroad, as Christians, we know the power of prayer and are called to pray for those who need additional strength and safety. The next time your family begins grace, say a prayer for our troops and their families.
Of all the gifts you could give a U.S. Soldier, Sailor, Airman, or Marine deployed in harm's way, prayer is the very best!!!
