As a pastor’s wife of 39 years, I always get excited when I find a book written by a pastor’s wife for pastors’ wives!
I could not wait for Kay Warren’s new book Sacred Privilege to come out back in May 2017. I was so anxious to begin reading it and once I started, I could not put the book down because I could relate. Some pastors’ wives had said to me when I was promoting the book, “I don’t think a Mega-church pastor’s wife can relate to the average pastor’s wife.” But once they started reading this book, they soon retracted what they had said.
Kay relates to any age and any size of ministry in her book. I believe this is a must have for ALL pastors’ wives to have in their library. It is so encouraging because being a pastor’s wife is such a unique role, it takes another pastor’s wife to understand and relate, and she does just that!
Here is a small description of the book:
Life as a pastor’s wife offers meaningful opportunities to play a significant part of God’s work, to witness and participate in the beauty of changed lives. Yet is also carries the potential for deep wounds and great conflict that can drain the joy out of service. Is it worth it? Oh yes, says Kay Warren, cofounder of Saddleback Church. It is more than worth the risk—it’s a sacred privilege.
Drawing on more than forty years in ministry, Kay provides encouraging principles and life lessons, along with intimate personal stories, that will give you the confidence you need to lead and live well. You’ll learn to:
- Accept who you are
- Adapt to change
- Help your children survive and thrive
- Protect your private life
- Deal with criticism
- Live with integrity
- Develop an eternal perspective
Whether you are excited, struggling, or feeling broken and tired, you will find hope and encouragement for your calling in Kay’s warm and wise words.
I love the title Sacred Privilege because that is what our calling is, no matter how many mountains and valleys we go through, our calling is a “Sacred Privilege.”
I would encourage you, if you have not already purchased this book, do so and enjoy the words of encouragement from Kay and recommend it to other pastors’ wives you know.
Remember, we are here to help you in any way possible on your ministry journey!
