Learn to Laugh

Posted by | Balance, Pastors' Wives, Spiritual Walk | One Comment

Are you taking yourself and life too seriously? Sometimes we tend to think we as pastors’ wives have to have all the answers or can’t laugh at ourselves.

In fact I was straight up depressed. I prayed and prayed for…
