I'm More Than the Pastor's Wife
Authentic Living in a Fishbowl World
  • By Lorna Dobson
Lorna Dobson knows firsthand the struggles and joys of being married to a pastor---and the questions, not the least of which is, 'What is a 'pastor's wife, ' anyway?' As her poll of hundreds of women reveals, the wife of a minister is rarely the piano-playing, committee-leading stereotype. With humor, disarming genuineness, personal stories, and wisdom rooted in Scripture, Dobson cuts through the labels. 'How I live has little to do with whether my husband is a pastor; rather, my life reflects my growth, or lack of it, as a Christian.' In this revised edition of I'm More Than the Pastor's Wife, she includes new perspectives as a grandparent, soon-to-be empty-nester, and speaker. Here are frontline insights on -Making friends and cultivating personal support outside the church -Learning to handle expectations and pressures -Balancing time and using your gifts -Supporting your husband and growing closer to him -Prioritizing prayer for your husband, family, and church -Knowing your capabilities and limits -Dealing with 'problem people' and church conflicts . . . and much more
