Letters to Pastors' Wives: When Seminary Ends and Ministry Begins
Stewart, Catherine J.
“This is the first book I have read addressing the full range of experiences in ministry life with the perspective that this is truly a life of privilege and blessing. The letters in this book are filled with wise and compassionate counsel. . . . When you have turned the last page, you will feel—as I did—that all [these women] are now dear friends.”See All

“Letters to Pastors’ Wives is an exceptional book written by seventeen different pastor’s wives and one pastor’s daughter. The letters are personal, warm, convicting, and engaging. The wives’ use of Scripture shows not only each wife’s maturity but also her love for the Lord and for her husband. I highly recommend this book to all women and especially to pastors’ wives!”See All

“At last, here is a much–needed guide for pastors’ wives penned by seasoned pastors’ wives! In preparing future pastors for ministry, my wife Mae and I have always sought to hold special teaching times for seminary wives in our home to address many of the issues that these women of God handle so well in this new P&R book. I believe this is now the standard text for seminary wives as well as those pastoral families—pastor and wife—who should set apart time to revisit the timeless themes. A few years ago, I wrote a song called Thank God for the Pastor’s Wife. After reading this book, I starting singing it again! I commend this wonderful collection of thoughtful and biblical essays to the church with joy and confidence!”See All

There is no right “type” of pastor's wife, only the one whose heart is wholly set on serving Christ. In this book you will find the beauty of various personalities, character types, and giftedness interweaving the pages of these letters. We are not called to fit into a certain mold but to be helpmeets to our husbands, helpmeets who enable them to serve God more effectively with us at their side than they ever could alone.
Includes a Preface by Rev. Dr. Neil C. Stewart
