Encouraging others is one of my spiritual gifts. Allow me to encourage you with a few things I’ve learned and will continue to learn in the ministry. God doesn’t need perfection just a moldable heart!
Courage to be a pastor’s wife…it’s not easy. It may stretch you to confront something painful, to face uncertainty or even intimidation.
Honored to be a pastor’s wife…it is a high calling. What an honor to love and support our husbands’ call to shepherd and lead a flock.
Pastor wives are important and have a purpose. What are your gifts? Find your gifts and talents and use them to build up the church. Love the people, be a mentor and most importantly be yourself. God will bless you!
Am I crazy to want to be a pastor’s wife?… because there will be hard days, but there will be great days too! And sometimes we must walk through waters we never expected. Keep trusting God. As I write this I am going through something big in ministry and I am praying for God’s strength to see me through!
Total security in Christ can make or break us… so let The Lord lead you! Because His Word says, “God will never leave me nor forsake me.” (Heb. 13:5)
“I always let the Lord guide me. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.” (Psalm 16:8)
Thank you for allowing me to share my heart with you.
