Strength for Service is a daily devotional book that is specifically written for those in the service of others.

Before it went out of print, more than one million copies of Strength for Service to God and Country were distributed during World War II and the Korean War.

Fifty years later, Evan Hunsberger was inspirited by his grandfather’s worn copy and republished the book as his Eagle Scout project in 2002.

While many World War II veterans reported how the original book carried them through difficult days and years following the war, it was underestimated how much the pocket-sized books would be appreciated today.

“Soldiers like the format and they like the way in which it ties them to past generations. Patients and staff find the book just as uplifting today as it must have been for men and women in World War II and the Korean War. The books continue to touch more souls every day.”

After publishing more than 485, 000 the Strength for Service team introduced a second volume, Strength for Service to God and Community, a book written for professionals and volunteers who serve as first responders.

We often forget that after families and friends of victims have been rescued, comforted or consoled, it is often our first responders who need emotional and spiritual support.

Strength for Service to God and Community provides spiritual encouragement and emotional strength for police officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians and all those who are engaged in the service of others in time of greatest need.
