Healthy Boundaries

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

Do you have healthy boundaries set in your ministry? In your marriage? In your family life? Unfortunately, very few pastors and spouses have healthy boundaries set in any of these areas.

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. It was not the response to a blog post I expected. Back in June of 2013, I…
