The first thing that comes to mind when I look at this book is: "Don't judge a book by it's cover". Honestly, while I knew it had to be a fairly good book for Moody to publish it, I looked at the cover and was not really drawn to this book. In fact, even though the first chapter is really good, I still wasn't sure about this book. But as I read on, the more and more I came to appreciate this wonderful encouragement and resource that Susie Hawkins has written for ministry wives.Hawkins deals with the typical topics that you expect in a book for pastor's wives and then pushes on to probe deeper, challenge harder, and encourage excitedly. I was really impressed with her simple, yet direct, approach to talking about the philosophy and theology of the wife working outside the home. I enjoyed the historical look into the position of a pastor's wife and the wonderful examples she brought to my attention. And I just can't get over how she constantly talked about our example and the way she brought this aspect into every chapter and facet of living as a pastor's wife. She not only talked about the importance of our example, but gave much encouragement and inspiration through the examples of pastor's wives who have been such godly examples themselves. I feel like I have a whole new circle of friends after reading this book and the accounts of other women who are farther along in the journey than I am.From One Ministry Wife to Another is broken into three sections: The Connections, The Disconnects, The Reconnection. Each of these sections was very beneficial, but I really enjoyed The Disconnects and the topics it addressed in a real life manner with a Biblical view point.This book is real and refreshing and needs to be a "to-read" for all pastor's wives!This review copy has been provided courtesy of Moody Publishers.
