I hope today’s devotion really inspired you to think loving thoughts about your pastor’s wife! I know it made me revisit the women I’ve adored over the years–women who loved me well–who are/were my pastor’s wives.
I thought I’d write one thing I love about each of them:
Mary Ann-I love how she loved her children in front of the college girls watching her every move.
Nan-I love how her care for her family shone through in everything she did from the meals she made to her beautiful home.
Mary-I love her cheerful personality and the sunshine she brought into every room with her.
Cheryl-I love how she is the steadfast cheerleader for her husband and the church.
Deb-I love her her passion for women’s ministry and how she let us know we mattered as individuals.
Kathy-I love her elegance and quiet leadership.
Brigitte (my current pastor’s wife)- I love her joyful abandon and how she lives so authentically. I love you dearly, sweet friend!
And many other associate pastor’s wives I adore–Brenda, Debbie, Linda, Lindsey, Lina, & Kristi
And some other friends married to pastors:
Janet- My precious friend, former bridesmaid and now wife to my brother, a pastor in Youngsville, NC… I’m so glad God made us sisters as well as friends. I love you!
Nana- My college roommate, pastor’s daughter and now pastor’s wife who is living a beautiful, abundant life, inspiring all her friends to do the same.
Wendy-The woman who I wanted to be friends with from the instant I saw her. She’s the real deal in every part of her life.
Jennifer-The friend who loves deeply and loyally (and makes me laugh until I need Depends).
Christie-The friend who still inspires me today with the seeds of passion for discipleship she planted in my heart years ago.
Peggy- The strong, fun friend who shares my love of India.
Laura-The fun, fashionista friend who brings the cool factor to loving Jesus passionately.
All of these women are completely wonderful, but not a single one is perfect. (Sorry to out you, girls!) Where have you focused when interacting with your pastor’s wife–her wonderfulness or her flaws?
