Crash the Chatterbox

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

I am sure as a pastor’s wife you have come across those people that you would call a “Chatterbox.” We all have experienced those type of people. But have you ever thought about the devil being the “Chatterbox” that you listen to in your head? Or the voices of an abusive person who has told you horrible things about yourself or done horrible things to you and you believe those lies. I recently had a book recommended to me that…

The Pastor’s Kid

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

Last month we dedicated our email/blogs to PK’s (Pastor’s Kids.) We recently were made aware of a book The Pastor’s Kid: Finding Your Own Faith and Identity by Barnabas Piper. Barnabas is a PK himself so this is a must read. Here is a description of the book: The only one under as much pressure as the pastors is…the pastor’s kid.

I have looked for many years for a book written by a pastor’s wife and I finally found one that I highly recommend as a tremendous resource from the heart of a pastor’s wife. It doesn’t matter if our church is a church of 50 or thousands, we all deal with the same issues as pastors’ wives. It can be a very lonely life and frustrating at times, but it is encouraging to know we aren’t alone and in this…

A New Kind of Normal

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

What does a new kind of normal look like? That was the question I asked myself one year ago on February 25, 2017 when we received an unexpected call that my youngest sister, and mom of three, had suddenly passed away. Now what? How do we go on? How do we comfort our 86 year-old Mom who has now lost her oldest son and youngest daughter to a sudden death 7 years apart? This is not how life is supposed…
