Being Yourself as a Pastor's Wife
Finding one's identity as a woman is challenging enough in a world barraged by conflicting images of the perfect wife and mother. Make that woman a pastor's wife and the challenge can become oppressive.
On this edition of Pastor to Pastor, host H.B. London Jr. addresses the challenges pastors' wives face in defining their roles at home and in the ministry. Speaker Kay Warren describes the dangers of perfectionism, and how pastors' wives need to seek God alone for their identities. Author Pam Farrel offers practical tips for women in ministry — like establishing mentoring relationships and protecting a passion for the Lord. Caregivers Janell Repp, Linda Swanson and Kandy Veenker discuss how to find healing in the midst of crises in ministry. And author Jane Rubietta urges pastors' wives to establish boundaries and their own personal callings from God before engaging in ministry to others.
