We connect ministry wives around the globe for the purpose of prayer, encouragement, awareness, accountability, bible study and friendship.

It’s Not Personal! It’s Ministry!

"Don't take this so personal, she said.  "This doesn't have anything to do with our friendship.  It's just that our family doesn't feel that we are getting everything that we need from the church(the same church where my husband was the Senior Pastor) and we believe that God is calling us to "so and so" church down the road."(The same "so and so" church where it was HAPPENING! )  I sat before her and was stunned.  I hadn't seen this coming and to be honest, I was speechless.  What did she mean, "Don't take this so personal?!"  I was trying to muster every bit of spiritual maturity but my emotions were betraying me and tears were welling up in my eyes.  I sat before a woman who had partnered with me in women's ministry for quite some time.  We had prayed together.  Laughed together.  Ministered to others together.  We had celebrated together.  Interceded for...

Pack Light

He told them: "Take nothing for the journey-no staff, no bag, no bread, no money, no extra shirt." (Luke 9:3)
Last spring our family took a little trip together during our daughter's school break. We drove nine hours one way to spend two days in a hotel in a snowstorm. Then we drove another nine hours home to spend another day in that same storm that somehow managed to follow us home! While packing for our quick getaway, my husband and I thought we could just share our "large" suitcase. I tried to pack light. Really, I did. But soon my husband was lugging another suitcase upstairs for himself. No matter how hard I try, my suitcase always bulges. Of course there were sweaters I didn't even wear, hand lotions I didn't need, medicines and toiletries that remained untouched for the duration of our trip; but how could I not take them...

Safety First

I am not what you would call new to ministry. As a matter of fact, I have been in ministry my whole life. As the daughter of a pastor, and now the wife of a pastor for over 37 years, I’ve seen a lot. And I’ve learned a lot. I’ve learned what to do and what not to do. Trial by fire? YES! At times. Abundant blessings? YES! All the time. I am eternally grateful for the journey God has taken me on - the highs and lows are what has shaped me into who I am right now. And God is not done with the shaping - He will refine me until the day I am with Him. God has strategically positioned my husband and me at the same church for over 27 years. My present calling is to be a mentor to the wives of our staff men. If these precious women love...

Toxic or Broken?

  "...he is able to deal gently with the ignorant and misguided for he himself is beset with the same weaknesses." (Hebrews 5:2)   Let's be honest. As pastor's wives, we are well acquainted with the ignorant and misguided. And, NO, I am not referring to our dear husbands! We can probably all think of that woman who long ago replaced diligently seeking God's will with following the whims of personal preference. Or what about that gentleman who can always be counted on to wield a whack load of worldly wisdom at every business meeting? The Body of Christ should be the last place we encounter such unspiritual eyes and hardened hearts, but we know these struggles firsthand. Today I want to encourage you sisters who faithfully serve in dry places, among people who have exchanged their faith walk for sight walking, in churches who have fallen far from being the hands and feet...
