Are you a senior pastor’s wife?
Are trying to figure out how to compliment his call without
losing your own identity?
If so, you’re in the right place! I’m writing this blog for Senior Pastors’ Wives just for you. No, actually, just for us.
You’ll find that have in your life supportive people, un-supportive ones, and those who are simply
ambivalent about you. They don’t know whether they like you or not.
I’ve learned to live with this reality and trust God to bring me to my desired end. People’s fickle feelings have little to do with my well-being. I love them, but God defines me.
Accepting yourself and others is crucial for your mental well-being. This involves embracing people who judge, those who pry into our lives out of curiosity, those who feel insecure, and even those who may try to use our connections for their own gain.
It is what it is.
But, along with it comes rich blessings and glorious grace. You get to love people and encourage them in real and meaningful ways. You get free hugs and lots of kind words. At least I hope you do. Either way, it is what it is. Your job is to allow the Lord to use every experience to die to yourself and conform you to His image.
It’s a day-by-day journey.
Know this: God has a specific and particular role for you in the Body of Christ – apart from your husband’s title.
I’m glad you have found this blog for senior pastors’ wives.
I welcome your comments. We can definitely learn from one another.
Most of my posts are simply my thoughts and musings. They don’t necessarily apply to my personal life, but sometimes they might.
Either way, my goal is to encourage, inspire, and motivate you to be all God has called you to be. That is the purpose of each blog post.
Whether you refer to yourself as the church’s first lady or the pastor’s wife, you are in the fish bowl. I’m in there too, and we’re going to be just fine.
I also hope this blog for first ladies in the church and senior pastors’ wives will make you chuckle, think, and even completely and hysterically laugh from time to time.

Also, I’m on Twitter (@Godsygirl), Facebook, and even on two other blogs:
Love ya! I really do.
P.S. That really is me in the picture above. I’m praying for a young minister’s wife. Can you believe I was blonde? 🙂
