How did this make an impact?

  1. Thank you very much for sharing your story Kay. I pray that the insights would encourage women in ministry all over the world.

  2. I look forward to this book. My husband & I just celebrated 35 years ministering to the same church. While I can relate on so many levels like the church and it’s expectations on our children and the weekends being led by a Sunday morning, I am so grateful to say that since believing that pastors should also have a pastor, we have rarely felt alone and uncared for. We know it’s easy to deal with things alone but being open to need is what keeps us healthy. Something else that I have found to be true is that the women in our churches will respect us more and feel vulnerable themselves when we let them see us vulnerable and weak and in need of prayer. I have felt supported and held up by the very women who I minister to. THAT is a gift I will never take for granted. And while many of them have their adult children in church while mine are not, they don’t judge, rather they pray and some of them realize that they thought ours should have been perfect when we were young.

  3. Dear Kay – Thank you so much! I’m very much looing foreward to reading this book! After spendig a lot of time to read and reread oder relisten your words in “Choose joy” I’m excited to read something specially for us pastors wives. I hope the book “comes” to Switzerland soon :-)
