The role

I recently heard a pastor's wife say that every staff wife should be involved in women's ministry. This is where my heart is, but I just don't think that you should define where someone is involved. It also amazes me how many staff wives I see who do nothing and are not a part of the church they belong to. What is your take on this? What should a pastor/minister's wife do at the church?

Why this blog?

I wanted to start this blog I guess to have an outlet, but I completely forgot about it:) This past weekend has been one of the hardest in my life. I don't mean for every entry to be about men's sexual integrity issues, but it seems like it is always present in my life. My husband literally gets calls once a week from someone who struggles or knows someone who struggles with sexual integrity issues. This past weekend the phone call came from a close family member.
I am so sad b/c this family member has four small kids and a wife who is distraught. I feel bad, but I am not angry at him just very sad.

It makes me look at every man and wonder if they too struggle. I am mad at our society and the way that sex is always out there! I know that God allowed me to walk the path that so many women have walked for a reason.

If your husband struggles with anything I highly recommend Every Man's Battle Conferences. They are like detox for sexual integrity issues. My family member was able to go to one this weekend. I know he has a long road ahead, but thankfully now his sin is no longer in the dark. Light has struck it, and when light hits it illuminates! God is so good, and I cling to Nahum 1:7 and Romans 8:28 at times like these.

Do you need someone to talk to? Are you hurting b/c of your man? Do you have a success story to share? Don't keep it in-satan loves the shame silence brings!
