Last week, I got a phone call from a friend of mine who leads an international ministry for Pastor's Wives. She regularly travels all over the world talking to PWs and their PHs, finding out their needs, listening to their concerns, and praying with them.
In a ministry like this, she keeps realizing the incredible need to provide some kind of resource to new PWs. A kind of "how-to" manual to get them oriented into life as a PW. Not every woman gets married knowing she's going to be a PW. Some pastors enter ministry later in life, others marry girls who are brand new Christians and are still learning about the gospel. But even those who grew up in ministry-oriented families can get overwhelmed when they put on their PW shoes!
So she asked me if I would be interested in helping her develop some resources to help young PWs get off on the right foot. I said "Absolutely!"
And now I'm coming to all of YOU for input. Dontcha love me? Here goes:
What do you wish that someone had told you about how to be a PW when you got started?
Or, if you're new to this gig, what do you wish someone would tell you right now?
