As I’ve walked the journey of being a minister’s wife, I have come to appreciate and understand the value of friendship among our sisterhood of minister’s wives.
Rather than focusing on my personal disappointment, I asked the Lord to show me how I could be an encouragement to others.
"My greatest joys in life are being a wife, mother, grandmother and pastor's wife. You might say that I love my job," writes Jeana Floyd, wife of Southern Baptist Convention President and pastor Ronnie Floyd. "… I have definitely experienced firsthand the faithfulness of God, serving Him in the local church in the good times and the challenging times."
I believe the benefits of being a minister’s wife in the local church far outweigh the negatives.
