                What feelings are stirred in your heart when you hear about our military and their heroic actions?  Is there a particular branch of our military that you have a heart for more than the others?  In the book, Seal of God, you will be introduced to a man who was raised in a Christian home, but wasn’t following God’s path.  In fact, he will tell you that having reached what he thought was the pinnacle of success as well as fulfillment, Chad learned it was anything but.
                Chad shares his journey through the various stages of his life and accomplishments, spending most of the book on how God touched him while he was serving in the Navy SEALS.  Chad loves adventure, excitement, and to push himself to the utmost limits.  Now he loves showing others the way to God.  Chad is able to share transparently what he went through for SEAL training; although some of his experiences he cannot share because of putting other men’s lives at risk.
                Parents will be encouraged by Chad’s testimony.  He was rebellious and hard-hearted, caused his parents pain and didn’t care, but God reached down and touched his heart.  Chad’s life has never been the same since nor has his wife’s, and that too is included in this memoir.  This story was so captivating that it didn’t take me long to finish the book.
                Grab a cool drink, sit in the sun, and read one man’s journey with God.
My rating is 5 stars.
