God Created Community

As women, we often feel alone.  We grow weary, frazzled, and frustrated, thinking that no one will understand or care to help carry our burdens.  All too often we believe those lies brought on by self-doubt.  Yet, God showed his love for us by creating community.   As a woman, I have found hope and […]

Tell Them to Duck!

When I told my preacher husband that I thought I’d write a short blog with Pastor’s Wives in mind, this was what he said: “Tell them to duck, because the bullets are coming.” And after the laughter stopped, I knew he was right. We’ve had plenty of bullets of all different kinds fired at us […]
