    I’ve enjoyed reading this book. It’s a true blessing to be able to tell this story.
    I wish Renata the best of luck as you are entering this new chapter in this journey called life.

    An awesome book I finally found the time to embrace written by Renata Morgan, an amazing Lady who sacrificed a lot including her son to fight for our country. This is a very intriguing story of a Woman of Faith and Hope.

    I just finished reading this book and it was informative! I’m so proud to call Renata my cousin. I never knew all the things she encountered but God helped her to stand tall. Everyone, please get a copy of this wonderful book. It’s definitely a must read.

    This book was ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL! I was deeply engaged and was able to even somewhat visualize my perception of what was happening during the many transitions. I admire Renata’s courage, wisdom, love, and humility shown for herself, her family, her country, and God! Wow! And to think, SHE HAS ONLY JUST BEGUN!

    Absolutely heartwarming and gut-wrenching. This book painted a vividly descriptive
    picture of a chapter in her life. This epic display of strength, discipline, courage and passion serve as motivation for me to push through any situation I find myself in. Continue raising the bar!!

    Renata, I read your book and I must say that it was a good read. It really captures the life of a soldier in an hostile environment and the other things that we must endure to service our country. My prayer is for your book to reach the masses who have not served our country. Reading your book will give the phrase ” Thanks for your service”, a more powerful meaning. Thank you for the good read!

    Hi Renata, I bought your book from you outside of the exchange at Charleston AFB. Just wanted to say, “Keep proving the nay-sayers wrong and keep being a beacon of light to those who dream and don’t allow fear to keep them following their dreams. This book is just a shimmer of the light you were created to let shine. Well written. God bless you and keep shining.–Jennifer Dixon

    I just finished reading your awe-inspiring book! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your journey with me. We met you in Charleston last Thursday. I was with my husband and grandson at the Px. Thank you again!

    I just finished your book and I want to thank you for sharing your story; it brought back so many memories from my deployment to Iraq as well. I share some of the same experiences that you had during your deployment. I am grateful that you made it back to tell your story and once again thank you for sharing it with us. The civilian population will never know how hard it is to leave your family (in your case a young child) for the sole purpose of the defense of this nation. Take care and keep sharing.

    I purchase this book today (7 May 19) while you were at Hurlburt Field and started reading it when I went back to my office; after a couple of chapters I was hooked. You are an amazing author and the way the book is written it makes the reader fill as if they were with you experiencing the events.

    Thank you for sharing your story and paving the way for me.

    With great pleasure I recommend Renata Morgan’s book “Transitioning from a Weekend to a Warzone” a first person account of her experience defending our country. Thank you for your service and sacrifice for our country! I am so happy to have met you in Biloxi this week – continue writing and may God bless you and your family always!

    I met the Author at Maxwell AFB AL. The canvas was eye catching. So I stop to find out the book. The books was very interesting. I picked the booked up that everyday and couldn’t put it down. I read the quarter of the books. The next day I was eager read the book.. This is a great book to live the life of an Armed Force member in a hostile environment.

    GREAT BOOK! I bought your book from you on Warner Robin’s AFB. I appreciate you for stopping me. This book was well written and easy to read for even none military personnel. Having been in the army and deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan myself this really took me back and I felt like I was there. I liked most how it was it chronological order as starting and ending my deployments were the best feelings. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! THANK YOU!
