Learning How to Say “No” and Be Okay With It

Posted by | Balance, Identity, Pastors' Wives | No Comments

I would like to share a blog with you today from Patti Johnson, a local pastor’s wife, on the hard subject of learning to say, “No!” We are so often put in the position to give an answer to the question, “Will you do …?” Often we say, “Yes” and then everything in us is screaming that we should have said, “No.” So how do we maneuver this minefield? Here are 5 practical practices that may help. I discovered them…

The Secret Ministry of a Pastor’s Wife

Posted by | Identity, Pastors' Wives, Spiritual Walk | One Comment
