My whole life I knew I wanted to serve God in a special way, and I told Him I would do whatever He asked- except marry a preacher! God laughed and in His own plan He made me a preacher’s wife. 🙂
Every pastor’s wife I knew growing up had perfect hair, a perfect smile, and a perfect wardrobe. She was gracious and kind and calm and wise. She played the piano, taught the children, led the women and cooked for every potluck.
I, on the other hand, have the smiling part perfected but the rest is pretty much outside the lines of what the perfect PW should be. For years I tried to fit myself into the mold of what I (& others) expected me to be, and for years I was a miserable woman living in the fishbowl of expectations and frustrations.
God created me to be exactly who I am- frizzy, sparkly, messy, real… AND He called me to be a Pastor’s Wife- to lead by example, to encourage the ones He puts in my path, and to bring glory to Him through my weaknesses.
Here are some posts about my struggles and victories as I seek to become the very best Pastor’s Wife that God has made me to be. Click any title to be taken to the full blog post:
