Summary

Life as a pastor's wife offers meaningful opportunities to play a significant part in God's work, to witness and participate in the beauty of changed lives. Yet it also carries the potential for deep wounds and great conflict that can drain the joy out of service. Is it worth it? Oh, yes, says Kay Warren, wife of Pastor Rick Warren and cofounder of Saddleback Church. It is more than worth the risk - it's a sacred privilege.

Drawing on more than 40 years in ministry in every possible size church, Kay provides encouraging principles and life lessons, along with intimate personal stories, that will give listeners the confidence needed to lead and live well. Pastor's wives learn to

  • Accept who they are
  • Adapt to change
  • Help their children survive and thrive
  • Protect their private lives
  • Deal with criticism
  • Live with integrity
  • Develop an eternal perspective

Whether she is excited, struggling, or feeling broken and tired, every pastor's wife will find hope and encouragement for their calling in Kay's warm and wise words.

A Pastor’s Wife Must Read!

I happen to stumble across this book on my travels and as a new Pastor I was completely humbled and blessed to have had the opportunity to appreciate this book and am definitely adding it to my library. Kay Warren takes you on a journey where you will learn, cry and relate to the many phases and encounters of a Pastor’s Wife’s life. You learn through her journey with her personal family, as well as her Saddleback Church’s experiences. It’s a must read for all Ministry Wives.

A book I turn to when things get tough

I love the vulnerability, wisdom, and truth found in this book. While I didn't listen on audible I have it by my bedside and recently cracked it open again after a difficult situation. My hope is that I always remember to practice radical forgiveness! Thank you Kay for this book and for sharing your story!

Encouragement for my role

This book was so relatable and inspiring. I feel encouraged and determined to thrive in ministry for the long haul. Before this book my heart was discouraged and heavy from life in ministry but after I feel God’s urgency to continue the path he has set before me! Thank you Kay!

Thank You!

I’m the daughter of a Pastor and I sense in a lot of ways that the Lord will also use me in ministry the way he has used my parents. I’m Nigerian (so go ahead and factor the huge cultural divide) and I could never understand why I had to go through all I have been through. I’ve been attacked, physically, spiritually, emotionally, and I’ve seen the strain the ministry has taken on my parents marriage and our lives as their children. Thank you, thank you, and thank you a million times over for sharing your story with us the upcoming generation of pastors wives and children. Thank you for not taking all the experiences you had to the grave without telling the world how to overcome and how you overcame. Thank you for lighting my fire, renewing and wetting my heart with God’s love afresh. I picked up this book at the point where I was basically asked to leave the church. I was completely over it honestly, but this book reminds me that God is still passionate for his people and that my utmost goal is not whether people accept me or not but that people are pointed to Christ through the same ministry that threatens to burn us. It’s not a burning I realize, it’s the Refiners Fire. Thank you for being transparent and opening up your past, your wounds and your scars. Thank you for this great legacy, and thank you for all your years of service.
