1. Do you feel like crying more often now than you normally have in the past? Do you feel sad or blue much of the time? When you see yourself in the mirror, do you appear to be sad, or do others comment that you no longer seem happy?

In many churches, the most thankless job is that of the pastor's wife. Though the pastor alone is paid, the pastor's wife is often still saddled with a host of responsibilities and expectations. She is expected to be a model wife, nurturing mother, friend to everyone, run a women's ministry, throw every baby shower, and cook every meal. These expectations are often unfair, unhelpful, and most importantly, unbiblical. "Pastor's Wife" is not a secret third office of church leadership. The Bible contains no job description for the pastor's wife, which is why extra-biblical expectations are often placed upon her.

After Elijah went to heaven in a fiery chariot (what other way would you expect him to go?), Elisha began his ministry. His work for God resembles his teacher's in so many ways. There is an incident in his life that teaches us about different aspects of prayer. It is found in 2 Kings 6:1-7, and it has many good applications for those of us serving in ministry.

We're all vulnerable.

Everyone who walks in the church door can be helped or hurt in what happens during the next hour. Whether saint or sinner, preacher or pew-sitter, oldtimer or newcomer, child or geezer, everyone is vulnerable, and should be treated respectfully, faithfully, carefully.

"But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you." Matthew 6:6 (NIV)
             
After finishing a big project at work, I was pretty proud of myself. Although most of my part had been behind the scenes, I hoped someone had noticed. The next few days, I checked and rechecked my emails and texts, waiting for an "atta girl" or "well done" message. But none came. Read More

An unsung hero - that's what you could call a minister's wife. Rarely do church members comprehend how much the pastor's spouse endures and gives up for her husband's job. The calling is tough, and many feel alone and judged by their congregation.

I must be honest, the best part of our new book, The Pastor's Family, is my wife's chapter on the struggles and joys of being a pastor's wife.  She lists 9 struggles, then concludes with the joys of being a pastor's wife.  It is tremendously insightful.

As I sit here at my computer, trying to think of a slant for this article, my mind is flitting back over almost 20 years of ministry. It flies back to the day my husband, Spence, came in the door of our cabin near Dawson City, Yukon, laughing because our pastor had just predicted that Spence would be in the ministry some day. I didn't laugh. I also remember the words my brother-in-law spoke the day before I married Spence. He said if I stuck with his brother, I'd never be bored. Both predictions have proven true.

I have written three blog articles about avoiding burnout in ministry  (post 1, post 2, post 3) that were mainly focused on the pastors (For the purpose of this article I am assuming these pastors are men.  Women pastors have a whole different set of issues to deal with.  Hopefully I can address some of those in the future.).  But what about their wives?  Do pastor's wives ever experience burnout?  How do they deal with it?  Is it even an issue in the church?

A glimpse at the splendor and respect attached to the office of a pastor can lure any woman toward becoming the wife of a pastor. Surely, most women would embrace the thought in the belief that such relationships, being founded on the solid rock of Christian religion, are bound to stand the test of time. However, there are more to being a pastor's wife than meets the eye; and the truth is that for most of them, the center fails to hold in the long haul.
