Have you ever asked the question “Where’s the manual for this job of being a pastor’s wife”? I dare say we have all asked that question at some point in our ministry life.
I would like to recommend a book to you that I believe every pastor’s wife will enjoy and glean something from.
The book is You Can Still Wear Cute Shoes by Lisa McKay. Below is the synopsis from the back of the book.
When most women think of a “pastor’s wife” one of two images comes to mind: either a woman who’s so holy she doesn’t seem human or someone sentenced to life without fun, fashion or friends.
Lisa McKay, a senior pastor’s wife, understands the challenges of a life lived before a congregation. You will feel an instant sisterhood with her as she shares the struggles and joys of “doing the ministry-wife thing”—from finding friends and coping with criticism, to saying good-bye to a church family and starting all over again.
You Can Still Wear Cute Shoes is an utterly honest, charmingly witty, and Biblically insightful guide for every minister’s wife who wants to serve the church and support her husband without losing herself along the way.
If you haven’t read this book I would strongly encourage you to purchase it and let it minister to your heart. Life as a pastor’s wife can be difficult so it is always good to hear from other wives.
