Mid-life Crisis???

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

I want to share a blog from one of our pastors’ wives here in The Confidante that I believe will speak to each of you. Does anyone know how old you have to be to have a mid-life crisis? I’m 37, so maybe that’s not what’s going on. Are their other crisises? Is that even a word? Is this a “third of a life crisis” or something?

How Much Are You Worth?

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

As pastors’ wives, at times we feel like we aren’t worth much because of all the things that are said or implied about us, or just from the stress of ministry.

NOTE: This article originally appeared on the Shattered Magazine site. She’s…

The Seasons of Life

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

By Tracy McCarty To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1 NKJV) We believe these words, right? In fact, as pastors’ wives, you may have even spoken them to someone else to give comfort or encouragement.  Why then do so many of us refuse to think that they apply to us as well? I realize this way of thinking is not exclusive to pastor’s wives, but as we begin a new year, I…

The Disgrace of Infertility

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

As we are approaching Mother’s Day, I pray you will enjoy your day honoring your Mother whether she is still living or not, and you will enjoy allowing your children to honor you. If you have not been blessed with children, then I would encourage you to allow those spiritual children that God has put in your life to honor you. Mother’s Day used to be very emotional and difficult for me because we do not have children, until I…
