Resources for Pastor’s Wives and Church Worker’s Spouses

For almost 20 years now I have been a pastor’s wife. I absolutely love it, but it is a unique calling from God as I support my husband in his calling. Ministry is changing rapidly as technology and society change, and I believe the church is in many ways scrambling to keep up.

Many of us are busy balancing our roles as wives, moms, keepers of the household, career women, and volunteers.

Here are resources you will find helpful as you work for God’s kingdom as a pastor’s wife. May you be blessed in your important calling.

I am available to speak to pastor’s wives groups of all sizes. Click here for more information on my speaking page.
