Not This Ministry

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

I would like to share a blog from another pastor’s wife that I believe will be a blessing to you. We all have in our minds when we go into ministry of how it is going to be but what do we do when God sends us somewhere we don’t really want to go?  Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. Isaiah 6:8…

What Does Mother’s Day Mean to You?

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.

Who Am I?

Posted by | Identity, Pastors' Wives | No Comments

As we begin a new month, I want to talk about a subject that I think we all struggle with as pastors’ wives and that is our identity. Who am I? Where do I belong in ministry? Am I called to ministry too? How do I not live in my husband’s shadow? How do I learn to say “No?” These are all questions we have asked ourselves at one point in our ministry journey. I personally feel that as a…
