The Gift of Hospitality

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

Today I would like to share a blog written by a fellow pastor’s wife on the topic of Hospitality. She addresses this with her 32 years of experience and in a very informative and gracious way. I pray it will be a blessing to you. I have been a PW for nearly 32 years and have learned some things that I wish I had known early. I don’t pretend to be an expert on ANYTHING. However, I hope I can…

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

As we are approaching Mother’s Day, I asked a friend of mine who is also a pastor’s wife, to share her testimony of what Mother’s Day means to her. I know you will be blessed by her story no matter where you find yourself in life’s journey. Mother’s Day. A day filled with flowers, cards, candy gifts and giggling children, right? A day that so many celebrate with their own mother and truly cannot wait to be celebrated when you…
