Publisher's Description

Nothing in my life goes untouched by my husband's calling. Christine Hoover's words in the first chapter describe so well the life of a church planter's wife, which is enormously difficult yet extraordinarily rewarding. To be married to a church planter is a calling all its own with richness all its own.

In The Church Planting Wife, Hoover explores and encourages the hearts of her readers while teaching what it means to have heart prepared for this unique ministry. As the wife of a church planter, she knows well the highs and lows; glories and despairs. Christine speaks with clarity and poignancy to the reader about what it looks like to be part of the church planting ministry and to grow a heart that wholly reflects Jesus.

Spread throughout these pages are stories and interviews from church planting wives. Christine Hoover empathetically and pointedly builds off these testimonies to uplift the reader and offer lessons of hope in the midst of a challenging ministry.

    My husband answered a call to a church plant 32 years ago.

    We are still serving together in the same church experiencing many of the same highs and lows described in Christine's book. I would highly recommend this book for every woman. There is heart-searching challenge as well as encouragement for those who minister. There is insight into the heart of the women in leadership of our local churches. God used this book to give me new inspiration as I continue to serve Him alongside my husband.

    Christine's book was like a riveting slap in the face for me. My husband (and I) are called into church planting and while I rejected the calling on my husbands' life for awhile now, Christine's realism has helped me grasp that rejecting the calling on my husband's life was the same as rejecting God or saying I didn't trust Him to lead and guide us every step of the way. This book is a much needed resource in the ministry world and I thank God for allowing me to stumble across Christine's blog and her book.

    I HIGHLY recommend this book to ministry wives, Christian women and especially church planting wives. It is overflowing with wisdom and insight!

    One of the things I love about this book is Christine's openness about how it really is_ministry. Even though she wrote this with the Church Planting Wife in mind, it really fits anyone who is in ministry. The struggles, hurts, issues and situations are across the board. She lays out practical ways to get through and grow deeper in your relationship with the eternal Father

    This gospel centered read encouraged me to rely on God's promises and Word to guide me through the difficult decisions we are face about our future. This book really simplified my prayers and thinking towards our future. I am so thankful. I would recommend this read to anybody that feels that they are being lead in a direction that seems really difficult or out of their comfort zone. I am really thankful for this read and will look back at it, especially to the "Cultivating You Heart" section.

    This book is one of my personal favorites. Christine is an excellent author and I love her style of writing. Right off the bat you connect with her and can relate to the stories even if you aren't a church planting wife. I am a minister's wife so I have encountered every challenge she has but I have a small business and felt that it connected to that. I really believe that any woman at any stage of life and in any situation of life will find this book encouraging, challenging and convicting.

    I loved the questions at the end of each chapter and the scripture to look at. The interviews with church planting wives throughout the book were honest and encouraging. I love that Christine gets to heart and it isn't a list of things to do in ministry. It gets at our hearts and really meets any woman where she is at.
