  2. Kay, wonderful words of kind wisdom.

    Thank you.

  3. Kay,
    Thank you so much for the encouragement you & Rick give to others.
    My husband (a pastor) & I have served the Lord in ministry for almost 40 yrs., 30 of which were in the NW. We have been a team… until moving to CA 4 yrs ago. I never had to work prior to living here. The high cost of living demands that we have 2 incomes.
    It has been our passion to start new churches. The one we took here in Cali was down to 23 people and had ran 500 back in the day. We are grateful to see that God is resurrecting it to life again!!!
    Needless to say, I have struggled greatly in the lack of not being 100% involved because of having to work. I struggle with resentment at times with not being able to share in the relationships that my husband gets to be involved with & that I’m not a part of. The Lord has certainly taught & teaching me so very much about me & the recessed of my heart during this process. One being, my job is my new ministry! I know it is a season in my life that is bringing good.
    Just know this was a ‘timely’ encouragement!!

    Thanks Kay for encouraging me to share my calling with my wife. Everything you wrote is very true and I fully agree with you that one cannot work alone and get far. Thank God we are serving together and sharing our church programs together. Be blessed and keep encouraging us.

    Really good message. May it bless me and others who read it… in JESUS name, amen!

  6. Thank you for sharing your insight into building a strong team with your spouse. The me first, is something my wife and I need to work on. The questions to ask are beneficial as well.

  7. Thank you for this encouragement. My husband is Senior Pastor at Connect Church in Tupelo, MS. He got me the book Sacred Privilege for Christmas and I absorbed every word. It was so good to read! I have gotten it to our staff wives as well and they are lapping up the awesome wisdom found in Kay’s book. Thank you for being raw and authentic for the rest of us to see.

  8. Hi Kay, I’ve shared with Rick what God has put on my heart, but he didn’t seem to want to support it because he felt that everything I said I had to offer those that suffer with their thoughts and compulsively was attained through indulging in the word. I couldn’t agree more, although God has equipped me with things that breaks down what the Word does for those who get into His word. I’m not even going to get into it because of the feedback I’ve been getting from people. I just had the desire to share with you that I’m going to contribute to changing many lives with the tools God has entrusted me with. He knows the power they have and He knows where my heart is. It is in His care. Thanks!

  9. I’m a young pastor and I have a beautiful girlfriend pastor (as we call also) who was also graduated Theology ahead of me. This article really enlightened and encouraged me to continue our shared moments talking about our ministry topics. Continue to be a blessing to me and to our fellow brethren in Christ worldwide. Hoping someday you and your husband will have a chance to conduct a seminar here in our place in Iloilo City, Iloilo, Philippines. I’m really blessed by your ministry. Thanks you and More Power. Looking forward to grant my request. Thank you Mrs. Warren.

  12. Thank you so much for your encouraging article today Rick Warren and kay Warren. ☕️

  13. Thank you for sharing Mrs.Kay Warren
    It encourages me to know that these things are normal in marriages who serve together; trying to balance ministry life as a couple and family life, and even our own individuality, yet still loving and encouraging each other along the way. I believe as ministry leaders share these personal testimonies it encourages those who are serving the Kingdom not forget the plan and purpose that Christ has for us. Not to be against each other but for each other, recognizing that this is a gift for us to use to strengthen the Kingdom.
