What people are saying
“This book is not for just pastor’s wives. It can be for any woman, or even man, who has ever felt the hurt and pain of betrayal and rejection, anyone who has ever been shoved out of his position, or calling, before he was ready, anyone who has ever let down his guard to trust only to find pain, hurt, rejection, loss, and betrayal instead.”
“Life is not smooth and sweet, however when we seek the encouragement from others who have walked in our shoes before us we can find that our struggles can turn to PRAISE as we rely less on ourselves and more on our Lord to carry us through…”
“This book will be a great encouragement to anyone in full time ministry, but especially pastor’s wives. No sugar coating, but the reality of life in the spotlight and the expectations set for these precious women.”
“I’m the pastor, not the wife, but this is a great read for me and for any church members who want to appreciate and support one of the trickiest and least understood roles in any congregation. Nan reports from the trenches; this is reality, not theory. And although she deals with some bitter experiences, she does so with grace and wit.”
