A timely book, written by a pastor's wife, who has taken up the challenge to give a voice to other pastor's wives that are struggling through some of the difficulties inherent in supporting their husbands who have been called to pastor a church, and to lead God's people from the wilderness to the promised land. In her book, the author not only highlights the crosses that pastor's wives must bear, but she also provides hope to the pastor's wife by providing recommendations on how to bear these crosses without compromising their relationship with their husbands, their relationship with God and His people, and their relationship with themselves. This is a book that every pastor's wife should read, and keep in their library or pass along to other pastor's wives as a source of daily encouragement and support. Mrs. Deloise C.
