I am a pastor's wife (I think I've mentioned that before) and I ran across this blog entry through a forum for pastor's wives that I am a part of. It has great insight into some of the things a pastor's wife (& a pastor) go through at times. I am VERY blessed to be able to say that my church does NOT treat us like this AT ALL. We have been so blessed by our current church family. As a matter of fact I consider them family.
At any rate I thought I would share this here in case there is anyone who might benefit by reading it. If you are a church member you can be a tremendous support to your pastor & pastor's wife by treating them like they are part of your family. I pray that this article may enable you to have insight into what it is like to be in ministry and that it would enable you to take steps to be a blessing to the leaders that God has called to care for you. Ask God what needs your pastor and his family may have that you could help to meet.
