I’m Married to the Pastor
“What were you ever thinking going into ministry?” As a pastor’s wife, have you ever asked yourself that question? Or maybe the better question: “What was God thinking?”
Sometimes it can feel as though He made a poor choice.
Ministry life and our ever-changing culture pose a constant challenge. As pressures from church, society, and family mount, it can be a struggle for ministry couples to find joy and learn to love their role as shepherds in the body of Christ. Pastor’s wives face special challenges. Too many women struggle with insecurities, fear and pain from rejection, and a burden of intimidation believing that they are making a mess of ministry life while married to the man they love.
Help! I’m Married to the Pastor is an authentic book of encouragement combined with a heart-felt reminder of the importance of the role of the pastor’s wife. A collection of personal experiences, life-giving scripture, and practical strategies for both the newly appointed and seasoned pastor’s wife, it seeks to answer the questions many pastor’s wives may be afraid to ask about navigating those challenges; all the while helping them discover that there is joy to be found in serving the body of Christ.
