Product Description

Life as a pastor's wife is a unique calling. Some women accept it whole-heartedly while others approach it more apprehensively. Yet either way, when seminary ends and ministry begins, she will face very unique challenges and joys.

When her husband was in seminary, Catherine J. Stewart greatly benefited from regular meetings with veteran pastors' wives who shared their wisdom and experience with her so that she could be encouraged and prepared for the life ahead of her. In Letters to Pastors' Wives, she seeks to do the very same for other women who are in the same place she was. Each chapter is a letter written by different pastors' wives and even a pastor's daughter covering different helpful topics such as personal priorities, expectations, hospitality, friendships, church conflict, loneliness, and criticism.

Endorsements

At last, here is a much-needed guide for pastors' wives penned by seasoned pastors' wives! In preparing future pastors for ministry, my wife Mae and I have always sought to hold special teaching times for seminary wives in our home to address many of the issues that these women of God handle so well in this new P&R book. I believe this is now the standard text for seminary wives as well as those pastoral families - pastor and wife - who should set apart time to revisit the timeless themes. A few years ago, I wrote a song called 'Thank God for the Pastor's Wife.' After reading this book, I starting singing it again! I commend this wonderful collection of thoughtful and biblical essays to the church with joy and confidence!
-Michael A. Milton,
Reformed Theological Seminary

Letters to Pastors' Wives is an exceptional book written by seventeen different pastor's wives and one pastor's daughter. The letters are personal, warm, convicting, and engaging. The wives' use of Scripture shows not only each wife's maturity but also her love for the Lord and for her husband. I highly recommend this book to all women and especially to pastors' wives!
-Martha Peace

"At last here is a much needed guide for pastors' wives penned by seasoned pastors' wives! In preparing future pastors for ministry, my wife, Mae, and I have always sought to hold special teaching times for seminary wives in our home to address many of the issues that these women of God handle so well in this new P&R book. I believe this is now the standard text for seminary wives as well as those pastoral families—pastor and wife—who should set apart time to revisit the timeless themes. A few years ago I wrote a song called, "Thank God for the Pastor's Wife." After reading this book, I starting singing it again! I commend this wonderful collection of thoughtful and Biblical essays to the Church with joy and confidence!
What a privilege to glean wisdom from these women who have served faithfully in the church and in the home as pastor's wives. I was challenged, encouraged and refreshed by this insightful and helpful book.
"Letters to Pastors' Wives" is an exceptional book written by seventeen different pastor's wives and one pastor's daughter. The letters are personal,warm, convicting, and engaging. The wives use of Scripture shows not only each wife's maturity but also their love for the Lord and for their husbands. I highly recommend this book to all women and especially to pastor's wives!
I have spent more than thirty years in a pastor's family--first as a pastor's daughter and then as a pastor's wife--and this is the first book I have read addressing the full range of experiences in ministry life with the perspective that this is truly a life of privilege and blessing. _______ The letters in this book are filled with wise and compassionate counsel. ______ When my husband finished seminary and began at our first church, I had no such book, though I could have used one! Stewart has assembled a much-needed tool for pastor's wives and addresses our unique situation with gentleness, honesty, and wisdom. _______ You will recognize the names of some of godly women who contributed to this excellent book. Others are ordinary pastor's wives, unknown in the eyes of the world. But when you have turned the last past, you will feel--as I did--that all of them are now dear friends, a cloud of witnesses pointing you to Christ in the midst of ministry life. ________ Honesty, encouragement, and wisdom--whether you are facing your first Sunday as a pastor's wife or have been a helpmeet in the pew for years. ________ I have spent more than thirty years in a pastor's family--first as a pastor's daughter and then as a pastor's wife--and I believe wholeheartedly that ministry life is a good life. This book is in that spirit; it acknowledges difficulties and joys alike, but always points readers to the enduring privilege of serving Christ and His kingdom.
