Publisher's Description

Pastor's wife, Kirstie Donovan, lives life in a fishbowl, so when she hops on the back of a bright pink motorcycle, tongues start to wag at the conservative, century-old First Independent Christian Community Church of Eels Falls. Kirstie loves roaring down a road less traveled by most women over forty, but she's not just riding her bike for the fun of it. Kirstie has a ministry. However, certain church members have secrets to hide, and when God uses Kirstie's ministry to fill the pews with leather-clad, tattooed bikers, those secrets could be exposed...and some will stop at nothing to hide the truth. Join Kirstie and her motorcycle ganga two church matrons and a mouthy, gum-smacking non-church membera as they discover that road-toughened bikers are quite capable of ministering to others, and faith is fortified in the most unexpected ways.

    This book was such a fun ride! From laughter to tears and plenty of smiles in between. I loved the characters and could relate to so well with them. As a woman, mom, wife, homeschooler...and wanna-be-biker! You'll love this book!

    Pastor Aaron Donovan isn't perfect, but his wife is--perfectly hilarious. Kirsten Donovan is not what some of the congregation think she should be, but she's exactly what others need to keep their spirits charged and their engines revved. With three sons, an over-sized dog, crazy friends, and a hankering for the rush of the wind in her face, Kirsten meets life with a gentle grace--and big black leather biker boots.

    With unpredictable hilarity, author Karla Akins captures the trials and triumphs of life as a pastor's wife, complete with autistic kids, dogs, grumpy congregants, motorcycle gangs and all. I'm getting a copy for my pastor's wife!

    Funny and heartwarming... two words that describe this book. From the first page I recognized some of the same characters that inhabit every church, big or small. The author uses humor, romance, and drama to show how God works on human hearts. This is not a preachy novel, and shows Christians as they really are, doubting, questioning, and ultimately trusting. Highly recommended!

    You're in for a ride--a revved-up bike ride!--with this hilarious novel that uniquely blends humor and real-life struggles, with a cast of real-to-life characters you'll identify with! The kind of book full of situations any Christian woman can relate to, with positive messages woven throughout, including the power of forgiveness, grace received and grace given, and the positive affect one person can have on the world around them. Definitely recommend this one by Karla Akins!

    So often in our world Christians are viewed as pious people who look down on others. Unfortunately, there are those. But in reality, there are many that are 'for real' in every way. Pastor's wife, Kirstie & her family, are for real & relatable. She has real struggles, real insecurities, a REAL husband (LOL), & deals with the reality of autism in her life, so prevalent for many in our day. She also has friends who are believers, & friends who are not. Her ability to connect with those who do not share her faith help lead them to the Savior who loves all & wants all to come to Him. He did not come to save the 'perfect', as there is no such thing, believer or not. And that is obvious too in some self-righteous church members, who are a constant source of opportunity for growth (ahem) for Kirstie. This story, that can parallel lives or at least be relatable for so many of us, takes many interesting twists & turns (some quite literally). It took me through a range of emotions, excitement at what was coming, wonder at some mysteries & when/if they would be solved, to a very unexpected climax. I highly recommend "The Pastor's Wife Wears Biker Boots" - especially good for bathtub/vaca/beach/lawn chair reading, or a bit of 'down time' enjoyment. But warning - you may not want to put it down!

Author/Artist Review

Author: Karla Akins
Located in: North Manchester, IN
Submitted: August 13, 2013

    Tell us a little about yourself.  Karla Akins is a pastor's wife, mother of five, and grandma to five beautiful little girls. She lives in Northeast Indiana with her husband, twin teenage boys with autism, mother-in-law with Alzheimer's and three rambunctious dogs. When she's not writing she's dreaming of riding her motorcycle through the mountains.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I'm a pastor's wife who rides her own motorcycle. So many hilarious things happen to me because of it, I knew that it would make a great story.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I hope they will come away with the Truth that Jesus loves everyone no matter their background, disability or differences, and that Christians should, too.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  A lot of things I wrote about in the book that hadn't happened to me before, happened to me after I wrote the book. It's as if God was preparing me for them.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  My favorite book growing up was Christy by Catherine Marshall. I'm not sure I'd have married a minister if I hadn't read that book and been inspired by it.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  I love my readers and love hearing from them! I hope they'll stop by my website and let me know how they liked the book! KarlaAkins.com
