It’s Not Supposed to Be This Way

Posted by | Pastors' Wives, Resources for Pastors' Wives | No Comments

Do Christians question God? I believe we all have at some point in our Christian walk.

I want to recommend a book today that I thoroughly enjoyed and I believe it…

Our Administrative Assistant, Christy, recently wrote a blog about this that I want to share with you today. I stopped and talked to a neighbor yesterday and he asked me where I worked and what I did. I told him about Care for Pastors and what we do, which is offer counseling to pastors, their spouses and children. His…
