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. Dad may be following God’s call, but the pastor’s kids (PK’s) are just following Mom and Dad. Often to…

Today I would like to recommend a book that was recently recommended to me and I believe it will be very helpful to you no matter where you find yourself in your ministry journey.

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…

Courage for the Unknown Season

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

We have all had unknown seasons in our Christian walk and I’m sure we could all write a book on those unknown seasons and how we dealt with them or what we learned. I was made aware of the book Courage for the Unknown Season at a Conference I attended last fall and because 2017 had been a tough year for me with some unexpected deaths in my family, I felt this book would be good for me. And it…
