Publisher's Description

Pastor's wives often face unrealistic expecations, challenges, and even discouragement as they serve alongside their husbands in ministry. Through advice and real-life stories, Donna Bordelon Adler provides solutions and encouragement to pastor's wives.A woman can excel when she examines frustrations and puts them into eternal perspective. Like a good friend whose company is cherished when life is filled with challenges, this book reveals down-to-earth, readable encouragements through each chapter.'Personally, having been married to a pastor's wife for 50 years, I do not believe those who hold the position of clergy wife can ever receive too much encouragement or enlightenment. Donna Alder has a book full of just that--affirmation and guidance for those who are called a pastor's wife.'--H.B. London, Jr.Vice President, Church and ClergyFocus on the Family

Summary from the Publisher

Donna Bordelon Alder's review of relevant literature has distilled the responses of ministry wives in 7 surveys to reflect the opinions of over 7,000 women from many denominations, and ages. Alder delivers a well-researched, well-illustrated book on the joys, the challenges, the success strategies of pastor's wives.

She combines relevant background information and advice mined from the experiences of thousands to illustrate life stories and to empathize with those considering, those anticipating, and those engaged in life as ministry wives. They no longer need to feel alone in their experiences.

The strengths of this book lie in its ability to successfully capture the actual experiences and advice of these thousands of women, in its relevant life stories, its down-to-earth readable nature, and its tender encouragement sprinkled along the path enlightened by each chapter.

    I am positive that any pastor's wife would find this book to be helpful! Donna Bordelon Alder writes from an undertanding and caring perspective. She also uses many studies that she and others have done on this subject to present a wide-ranging background for giving a pastor's wife the help that she might need. She speaks to the role, sometimes to the plight, and always to the soul and life of the wife of a pastor. I am not a pastor's wife, but this book has helped me to have a better understanding of my pastor's wife and to be a better member of her congregation. The book is very "readable." As I have read it, it has become a devotional ministering to the hurts and needs of my own soul. I am positive that any woman would find this book to be helpful!
