A Couple Reviews For Soldier With A Backpack Living and Dying Simultaneously

Today I just want to give a special thanks to God, and every soul who has read my book so far.
I thank God for “Soldier With A Backpack Living And Dying Simultaneously”.
I received an e-mail I cannot keep to myself because this man, Doug, read my book and had this to say:

Here are just a couple reviews that I have received:

First Review: Ms. Linda I received your book Friday I have to admit I haven’t read a good book in a long time I guess the last one I read was by Brother T.D. Jakes I spend most of my time studying Labor Books.

When I started reading yours I couldn’t put it down one minute I had tears in my eyes and the next minute I was so uplifted I was praising God you know it’s a blessing from God when at first your heart is broken and the next you are uplifted. What a blessing you are especially when they read your book they will be blessed as I was, it made me stop and question my walk in faith with the Lord and you were exactly right love is the Key.

Everyone needs to put hate out of their lives and fill it with the Joy of Love that can only come from having a relationship with God. I especially enjoyed the part when you talked about being filled with the Holy Spirit and being slain in the Spirit, I am A Spirit filled Christian and sometimes it is so hard to explain that to others because they just don’t believe. Praise God for using you as his instrument not only to spread his word but to make people understand that PSTD is real and it is a fight that goes on in individuals we encounter every day and by showing individuals love and a kind word can make a world of difference in people’s live.

It will be a honor for me to write a review for your book if you tell me where I need to go to write it, in fact my wife was so intrigued with me not putting the book down she has started reading it.

Thank you,


Second Review: Soldier With A Backpack: Living and Dying Simultaneously (After The Storm Publishing Presents) by Linda Diane Wattley

Author Linda Diane Wattley’s memoir ‘Soldier With A Backpack: Living and Dying Simultaneously’ is packed with nuggets of pure truth meant to expose the evil that was meant to destroy her, show God’s greatness and attest to her healing from PTSD. Once I started reading, I couldn’t put her story down. I especially love memoirs, because it takes a special kind of strength to write a memory and share raw emotion and experience with the world.

If you enjoy reading memoirs that are a journey from hell into healing with ordained, anointed prayer behind the words to encourage others along their journey, this book is a must read.

Linda says, “Out of trauma, much drama occurs. Trauma has so many levels of appearing in our lives from the war zones where our soldiers witness death and the survival of death, vehicular accidents, murders, catastrophic disasters, illnesses, rape, sudden deaths of our loved ones; the list is unending.”

“Cycles can be broken when light is shined on reality. This is my purpose to shine light on the personal aftermath of trauma. ‘And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.’ John 8:13.”

Follow Linda through her life, learn from her healing and willingness to share what most people would hide in the darkness. Enjoy the short, direct poems scattered throughout the book and learn how Linda activated the love of God in her life, so she can be a beacon of light (“messenger”) to those seeking healing form PTSD.

I, Theodocia McLean endorse Soldier With A Backpack: Living and Dying Simultaneously (After The Storm Publishing Presents) by Linda Diane Wattley as her memoir from darkness into light. I purchased and reviewed this book in a Kindle format. This review was completed on January 30, 2016.

About Universalove

I am an author on a heartfelt mission. I want to share a truth that makes a difference to how one may exist in the world after trauma and victimization. I want our soldiers, veterans, and innocent victims to know PTSD does not have to own us. In fact, we are far greater than this disorder can ever be. We just have to see it for what it is. We have to see ourselves and once we realize this is our greatest priority, our godhood kicks in and reign.
