Show Us Your Life – Minister’s Wife


I’m a minister’s wife.

That’s very hard for me to type much less accept.

I didn’t want to be put here.

Yet here I am.

LORD, help me to embrace this instead of fighting it.

I don’t feel “good” enough.

I don’t feel outgoing enough.

And it’s embarrassing to admit it but sometimes I don’t want to go to church.

I sit in the pew and listen to my husband and sometimes I wish I was UNDER the pew hiding.

I pray for your words to come out of my husband’s mouth.

I pray for peace of mind.

But mostly I pray for GOD to help me be who and what He wants me to be.

  1. Love your honesty! SERIOUSLY I just wrote a post called confessions of a pastors wife where I talked about not wanting to go to church. Cute blog!Thanks for sharing.

  2. I also appreciate your honesty!
    I believe more people in ministry need to be “real.”
    I was a youth minister’s wife, then a pastor’s wife, and now the wife of an Army Chaplain! (Same husband, by the way!) šŸ˜‰
