"He's only here on temporary duty! So no matter how nice he is, he's not going to be here long. And I certainly don't care to just be someone he wants to snuggle up to emotionally because he's away from home and lonely!
"Lord Jesus, I heard someone say that a girl should seek a man that loves You totally, with his whole heart, because only then can he love her totally the way she needs him to. That's the kind of man that I want to spend my life with! So I'm willing--and content!--to wait for You to bring that man to me!"
Megan Adkins, Temporary Duty
With a focus on Christian integrity, moral purity, and sexual abstinence before marriage Temporary Duty centers around Megan Adkins, a single young woman working at the military base where she meets Marine Corps Sergeant Cory Randall who has just been stationed there. Both attend the same local church, both love the Lord Jesus, and both are committed to Biblical obedience. Cory finds Meg attractive and intriguing and wants them to date, but she prefers only a friendship and carefully guards her emotions.
Megan and Cory have full lives and involvements with others as they work at the base and serve in ministry at the church. But their mutual friends, the Clayton family, keep the two interacting with each other--and learning Christian life lessons along the way.
Choices are presented, and decisions have to be made. As they get to know each other, will they act on youthful emotions or stay true to their Biblical commitments and wait on the Lord to lead them?
