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

Have you ever felt all alone even though you are surrounded by people all the time? If so, you must be a pastor’s wife.

As pastors’ wives we know how vulnerable our position makes us and how we have to take things in stride. A pastor’s wife recently shared a Facebook post with me from another pastor’s wife and I believe it is worth sharing. I know as you read it, you can totally relate. “No one in the church family is more vulnerable than the pastor’s wife. She is the key figure in the life of the pastor and plays the biggest role…
