40 Days in the Desert
This devotional guide explores experiences of uniformed services personnel such as police, military, firefighters and EMS workers, but can be meaningfully utilized by almost anyone seeking inspiration. Included are 40 meditations that can be used for reflection during break time in a mess tent, firehouse, patrol car or ambulance bay, or at home by people who need a lift. Each devotion includes an “In-Service Training” paragraph and a special prayer. Author Paul F. Bauer, a retired police lieutenant, operates a mental health counseling practice with his wife in Shallotte (they are both North Carolina Licensed Professional Counselors). Bauer also volunteers as a chaplain with the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office. The Bauers live in Bolivia, N.C., and are co-op members of Brunswick Electric. Langmarc Publishing.
