Oh yeah, pastors wives, do I have your “number!”
When I first wrote this post on GodsyGirl.com, I hadn’t been married to a pastor for very long. I was one of those pastors wives who was just clueless.
So much has changed since I first started this blog!
That’s why I often re-fresh, updated and add other resources. My endeavor is to be a blessing and to provide the “voice” I wish I had when I was younger.
Honestly, I deleted much of what I wrote because now it seems like light years from where I am now.
I’m still talking “real talk” about the challenges Christian women face, but, my perspective has changed quite a bit since I was a newlywed writing these blog posts and Christian lifestyle articles.
I have found my pastor’s wife rhythm!
Now, I consider myself something of a pastor’s wife “veteran” and I love my life!
I’ve found my place in my husband’s call as we follow the Lord together.
The pastors wife (I’m leaving out the apostrophe for SEO reasons) role is full of “ups” and “downs”, but isn’t everything in life? Of course it is.
Other women married to a pastor can relate. We have our struggles Just as everyone else does.
In fact, sometimes, I think we feel them deeper than most would expect.
My blog for pastor’s wives
That’s why I blog about our experiences in ministry marriages at www.marriedtoapastor.com.
I try to write blog posts we can relate to. I talk about being a ministry-minded “PW” in posts like:
30 Ministry Ideas for the pastors wife
I also talk about things like living life in a “fish bowl” with everyone in your business and even watching what you wear as a pastor’s wife.
I think a lot of about the legacy I will leave. I blog about that here:
What will be your legacy, pastor’s wife?
Girl, I even talk about how sneak little gossip finds pastors’ wives in ministry marriages.
Yep, we can fall into gossip and sometimes now even know it!
I also explore the whole issue of pastors’ wives working. Is it ok? Is it not? You already know my take is not typical.
