In 2015 Liesel compiled a second book "Faith On The Frontline". Serving and ex members of the armed forces, and their families, give us a perspective of life on the front; dealing with loss, joy, confusion, sacrifice, pain, celebration, hard work and victory. Through their stories we explore how our faith can stand up to life’s daily battles on our spiritual front line. 

This book of 100 days of devotions will help readers to engage with scripture at times of pressure at any stage and situation in life.
