Nestled between two of America's most celebrated Fall holidays is a very special day that we should all take time to observe - VETERANS' DAY (November 11th this year).

Whether you've ever served in the armed forces or not, every political, religious, or civil freedom you have can be directly connected to the courageous men and women who have fought to protect those liberties.

But what happens to the spouses, parents, and children who are left behind when our soldiers go off to war? How do they cope with the isolation and the uncertainty that is a major part of life for military families? Today, we want to focus on them and their stories.

My guest today, Karen Whiting, is one of them. Karen, along with Jocelyn Green, has co-authored the new book, Stories of Faith and Courage from the Home Front.

Tune in as she shares some of the many inspiring and revealing accounts of everyday homefront heroes from across the decades of America's rich history up until now and how they have survived and thrived.
