I recently counseled a pastor's wife who had just found out her husband had had an affair with a youth. Another downer was that she was due any day. I know some of you are reading this and are probably pretty shocked, but unfortunately it is a very common problem. I know b/c my husband revealed some personal struggles with me on our first wedding anniversary. My husband had issues with pornography. I know that to some of us that is just so shocking, but if your man tells you pornography has never tried to tempt him he is probably lying. Our society bombards our men every day with images they just can't get out of their heads! My husband took about a year break from ministry to face his demons and now he is back on track. Not all men get back into the ministry after that, but he went through a restoration process. Back to my original thought. I just want you to know that if you have ever faced something like this you are not alone! Please seek some Godly counsel and find people to support you!
Welcome to my blog and welcome to my world. I am a pastor's wife and wanted to start a blog about my life in general, but specifically about being a pastor's wife. I have two kiddos, both under the age of 3. I have been married for 5 1/2 years. Being a pastor's wife has its ups and downs, but mostly ups. Our road of ministry has not always been an easy one, but even through the trials we have continued to find our joy! My goal for this blog is that other pastor wives would find encouragement and even leave comments to encourage others. I feel like sometimes as pastor's wives we get a little forgotten, so I feel we must be there for one another.
