I am a first time blogger and new to the computer world in general. Recently I have been saddened by the number of people who have become discouraged in ministry or have left ministry to find something to fill a void they obviously have. There are many discouragements we face in ministry today. Some of those include a lack of faithfulness among church members, disappointments in others, unfulfilled expectations and severe heartaches. I would like to be an encouragement to other pastors wives as well as help others to understand the life we live from our viewpoint. This is not about venting or whining. This is meant to bring encouragement and to be a blessing to others. For those of you who used to read my newsletter articles, you will see a similarity. Pray that my words would bring glory to God.
