Life is a fragile Gift so cherish every moment!

 Good evening readers. I hope this day finds you doing well and know that even though we never met . I pray for all who are reading this blog that you will know in your hearts that You are not alone.   Jesus is guiding our steps!   I'm praying for you and the  struggles may be facing, and you can feel my prayers.     Ministry life is full of ups and downs,,, those moments when we wonder can we continue on and other moments we are on the mountaintops and feel so energized by the Holy Spirit. I know there are days I totally feel overwhelmed as we carry such a heavy load for our congregation and trying to continually support our husbands, all the while trying to manage our homes and our children and not losing ourselves and giving us time to just breathe. Lately, at our church, we feel the worries of those in our church family, some without work, some dealing with chronic health issues, and others dealing with more serious health issues. We feel it every ounce of the struggle, every w

Everything Beautiful In Your Time

 Dear Readers, on this rainy morning, though, it's a beautiful day because the Lord has made it. I hope this finds you all doing well. Give yourself a reminder today that you are loved beyond words by your creator, and You are safe in His embrace. So this is going to be a very transparent entry in my blog, to bare my heart to you. My prayer is that when you read these words, you don't feel so alone. We all know how difficult being in ministry can be and how much being a pastor's wife can wear on our hearts if we don't pour into God's word for our strength, wisdom, and direction. What happens, though, when you're a pastor's wife and struggle with depression or mental health issues? Do you feel ashamed? Do you hide behind your painted smiles on Sunday morning, portraying that you are fine and just feeling a bit off? It's through our brokenness that We become whole in Christ! As I get older and the more life we experience, we can empathize with others more

Importance of Feeding Your Soul!

 Good morning readers. I hope this morning's blog finds you well and blessed. I have been fervently praying for you all, even though we never have met face to face. We all are on the same mission, through our struggles may look much different from one another. Let's be united with the calling that our husbands have taken as the undershepherds of the flocks they pastor. We have something in common: we are wives of pastors, and I know this is not always an easy road to travel down. That's the whole purpose of this blog to encourage each of you right where you are, whether times are going good or you feel like you can't continue on in this calling. Jesus tells us in the scriptures to fight the good fight and not grow weary in this mission.    I prayed on what I would write about and I felt the Holy Spirit speak to my heart and show me where I need to focus on more too, so I'm sure that many of you struggle with finding the time/making the time for  personal bible study

I am me, I am who God called me to be

Good afternoon readers, for a very long time, my heart has had a desire to see more support for pastors' wives, whether that be in the form of retreats or books from fellow pastors' wives who are in the trenches with us. Here is a short backstory of what led me to this point in my life. As I go on in this blog, I'll share our story in more depth over the next few entries. I want to be transparent with you, so I'm not just someone out there behind a computer screen, but you can find something in my journey that you too may relate to. So Grab a cup of coffee and sit down and let me share my heart with you.  My husband and I have been married for 22 years; we have one daughter in heaven; she would off been 22 yrs old if she was still with us. I have served in different ministries at different churches over the years, and this church where my husband presently serves as a senior pastor is my first go-around as pastor's wife. I'm so grateful I have Godly mentors in m
