Signs of God’s Faithfulness

Posted by | Balance, Pastors' Wives, Spiritual Walk | No Comments

Ministry can be tough and especially for pastors’ wives. As we wives make the changes necessary for new assignments, it can leave us feeling very alone and even depressed at times. I would like to share a blog one of our pastors’ wives, and staff member here at Care for Pastors, recently wrote. When we first moved to this church 7 1/2 years ago I was not happy. In fact I was straight up depressed. I prayed and prayed for…
