A pastor's wife is a great juggler, managing numerous responsibilities simultaneously. But take it from this clergy spouse of 38 years - God, spiritual health, and family must come first - or there will be trouble. In High Call High Privilege, Gail MacDonald shares practical advice and real-life wisdom for living in the world of ministry. Discussion questions for each chapter of the book are included, making it suitable for a small study group study as well.

Gail MacDonald loves the ministry. Over a period of four decades, she has been involved with four congregations and one parachurch organization with her husband, Pastor Gordon MacDonald.
Throughout the book you will take a tour through these years of shared ministry. Like Paul the apostle who gave and received much from the churches, Gordon and Gail look gratefully at the journey they have shared with these distinctive groups of people.
It is Gail's prayer that readers will see their own uniqueness in God's design, never trying to be anyone but themselvesthe people God intended them to be. When you are finished reading, she hopes that you have heard one unmistakable messagethat a life of ministry in the church is still a high call, a high privilege.
Gail MacDonald and her husband ministered for many years at Grace Chapel in Massachusetts. They have now retired in New Hampshire and devote much of their time to writing.
"Years ago, when I read the first edition of High Call, High Privilege, Gail MacDonald inspired me to trust God and to consider my calling as a woman in ministry as a high privilege. Now, seventeen years later, Gail has lovingly undertaken the task of sharing new insights and wisdom gained over the intervening years concerning the privilege of serving our Lord along with her husband. Thank you, Gailwe are indebted to you for staying true to your call."

Judy Wright5 Stars Out Of 5February 27, 2008Judy WrightAbsolutely my favorite book for wives in ministry. I read it about every 2 years! I find it encouraging while at the same time convicting each and every time I read it. I've led our new youth staff wives through it and each of them loved it and could hardly put it down. Lots of real life illustrations that you will relate to and be challenged by. I highly recommend this book for personal read or leading a staff wives book club.

Ministry Wife Appointed but Waiting5 Stars Out Of 5November 30, 2007Ministry Wife Appointed but Waiting"High Call High Privilege" is an excellent resource for pastors wives, those who are called and waiting to be chosen or those who serve as counselors to ministry couples. I found the author to provide real scenarios for the ministry wife on coping with a number of situations. I highly recommend this book.
