Raising PK’s

Posted by | Balance, Family, Pastors' Wives | One Comment

I would like to share a blog with you written by a pastor’s wife that was posted on and they have given us permission to share with you today.

Barnabas is a PK himself so this is a must read. Here is a description of the book: The only one under as much pressure as the pastors is…the pastor’s kid.
