Stories Dinner Gift Pack

$ 28.95 

Share a meal and a story.

Inspiring true stories about love, loss, life, and the power of sharing a meal and a story with others.

This two-paperback gift pack includes one copy of Stories Around the Table: Laughter, Wisdom, and Strength in Military Life , a collection of stories about many aspects of life, and one copy of Dinner With the Smileys, one family's experience inviting a member of their community to dinner each week for a year.

This is a perfect gift pack for military and nonmilitary readers!

In Stories Around the Table, more than 40 military family members share personal moments from many different aspects of their lives: friendship, romance, depression, caring for children with special needs, moving, deployment, career challenges, changing schools, infertility, living overseas, finances, combat injury, post-traumatic stress, faith, grief, and more.

In Dinner With the Smileys, Sarah Smiley shares her family's experience inviting one new guest (from senators to school teachers, artists to professional athletes) to dinner for each week that her husband was deployed overseas. This personal story touches on loss, loneliness, regrets, sacrifice, and finding your own strength.

In both books, you'll laugh, cry, and feel the power of stories and comfort of community. And you won't see the dinner table quite the same again.
