Here's a word of wisdom and encouragement for the church's first lady and written by a first lady who knows what it's like. Rev. Dr. Cecelia Williams Bryant has written her own "epistle" exclusively for first ladies, with advice about how to handle: church conflict, financial stress, self-esteem, discouragement, adultery. As well as being a minister in her own right, Rev. Dr. Williams Bryant is the wife and mother to ministers in the African Methodist Episcopal Church.
Written in the tradition of Paul's pastoral epistles and crafted by Rev. Bryant's own poetic voice, each chapter addresses a woman who is wrestling with a particular issue common to first ladies of the church--such topics as church conflict, financial stress, self esteem, discouragement, and the death of a pastoral spouse.
