Date:March 25, 2008
Behind the mask of financial success may be a painful reality: bankrupt relationships with family, friends, self, & God. In order to cope, spouses learn to become independent of each other. They become the married divorced... says author Sam Gallucci. Gallucci's personal account reveals his disastrous personal failure at the height of success as a Christian businessman. After years of gradual compromise, he woke to find himself deep in sexual sin. I had two lives, one on the road and one at home. The lessons are still raw in my mind. Some are still being sorted out today. How did I ever get to the place where I chose to sin...the answer to that question is why (we) have collaborated on this book. Using the book in their own lives, the two authors give proven and practical ideas to the traveler on:1)How to develop his (or her) relationship with God at home in order to utilize Gods strength on the road2)How to maintain thriving relationships at home & long-distance 3)How to maximize accountability relationships 4)How to set filters to protect ones heart and behavior, and recognize the emotions that could easily lead toward a destructive path Designed for the busy traveler, the reader can skim the book and get enough from the main points to begin to make positive changes that night. Each chapter opens with Quick Tips to Grab on the Go, and concludes with thought-provoking questions to use for personal prayer or discussion with an accountability group. The book is divided into three parts: The Challenge, The Consequences, and the Solution. Many points are repeated in the first eighty pages. The third partThe Solutionis the catalyst for changing ones life.Road Warriors is a preventive tool for the young traveler, as well as a must-read for the person who is lost on a destructive path. Though written in the context of business travel, the information in this book is as important for military marriages.
