Seven Things We Learned from Pastors’ Kids

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

I would like to share a blog from Thom Rainer with you today that I know you could add to his list of 7 things learned from PK’s. As we press into offering more for PK’s, it is our heart’s desire to see them remain healthy and keep a Biblical perspective of the Church, because Christ loves the Church and died for the Church.

Celebrating Disappointment

Posted by | Pastors' Wives, Spiritual Walk | No Comments

We don’t have to be in ministry long to experience disappointment. As a matter of fact, we don’t have to be alive long to experience disappointment. That is just part of life. I would like to share a devotion out of the Our Daily Bread devotional Great is Thy Faithfulness that is a great encouragement on handling disappointments. After receiving his second Academy Award, Denzel Washington said to his family, “I told you, if I lost tonight, I’d come home…
