I mentioned in a comment a few days ago that there has been very little discussion of what it means to be a pastor's wife. So I emailed Focus on the Family with some thoughts and they responded:

"It was thoughtful of you to send us your feedback concerning the amount of resources you have found that address the needs of pastors' wives. We are pleased that you brought it to our attention. The suggestions and various ideas we receive from our listeners are of great interest to us and often prove to be useful. We have passed along your observations and blog site to our Ministry Outreach department for consideration.

"Again, thanks for contacting us. If we can be of further assistance in any way, please do not hesitate to let us know. May the Lord richly bless you and your loved ones in the days ahead."

We'll see if anything happens. Maybe a magazine article or radio show or on-line discussion will develop from this. Who knows? In the age of the internet and instant information, anything is possible and everything's worth a try.


Let's add to the list of things people should know about their pastor's wife....

Don't brag about your new car/minivan/vacation/designer shoes/purse/whatever in front of your pastor's wife. She isn't trying to be materialistic, but it makes her feel bad when she goes to strap her babies into the back seat of a 10-year old used vehicle and tries to be hopeful about the "someday" that her family can go on a real vacation.

The first seven years of my husband's ministry he spent his vacation weeks staying at home or taking on extra temporary work to make ends meet.
