I just wish every church member in America would watch this and appreciate the pastors' wives.

That was very good.

The one I liked best was the first one: clearly defined, limited (delimited) roles.

But I hadn't thought of this, mostly b/c I haven't faced it yet, but it seems to go without saying that I have a right to choose my friends and who I will mentor, but I'm glad he spelled it out.

When my husband first became a pastor, we'd been attending the church for a few years as laypeople. People used to ask me, "So how is it being the pastor's wife?" And I could honestly respond, "I love being his wife whatever he does!" It helped to set the tone for the church to see me as a normal woman with some children and a husband who does normal work. The hardest thing is to not allow the things I see as being able to fix/be involved in to be my responsibilities. I have to set it aside and let others do it. Most of the time the church blesses me by letting me love my husband.

I loved this video. I esp. loved the part about how crazy it is for pastor's wives when they are trying to get their kids from the parking lot into their classes. It is the best/worst time of the week for me. Lots of stops along the way, and my kids get very aggravated with this. I enjoy talking w/people, just not with my kids right there rolling their eyes. :)

There wasn't just one thing that stuck out, just the whole thing overall was really good!

I'm very involved and don't mind it, but we have set up a system where I have help. So being involved is my heart!

Great Video!!

My husband went into ministry after we had been married almost 25 years. I so agree that the pastors wife needs to be able to take care of the pastor. I love being in ministry and quickly found myself overextended - I am now pulling back so that I can be there to help support and encourage my husband. "Pastor the pastor" I also loved the part about having "safe" friends. Being a pastors wife can be very lonely and at times there is a lack of depth of relationships.
