Among it being the greatest job in the entire world, here are 7 reasons we ADORE being the pastor's wife.
1. We are called to help the Bride get ready for the wedding.
What? Crazy I know. It is a true honor and truly humbling, God would call us to such an amazing role helping shepherd and lead His Church!
2. We get to sleep with the pastor!
No matter how bad our days go, the struggles, mean comments, lack of finances.... at the end of the day we get to rest our head on a pillow beside our husbands, the pastor.
3. We get to exercise our gifts regularly, by living a ministry life.
Our families live and breathe ministry. So much planning, praying, doing, loving, and so on with leading a church. This allows our gifts to be used regularly. It is a blessing.
. There aren't any rules or guidlines.
Obviously we live and strive to live a life that represents Christ, and seek His face daily, and believe and follow the word of God. However, when it comes to a "How to Guide" for being a pastor's wife, there isn't one. It doesn't matter your age, body type, personality type, or looks. When we are called by God, He equips each of us pastors' wives exactly where we are. We are all different. We are perfect in His sight.
5. We get a front row seat to what God is doing.
Because we are the wife of the pastor we get to see behind the scenes action, and get to know and see all that God is doing among the church.
6. We are constantly learning and growing.
Because there isn't a "How to Guide" (See 4.) we are constantly learning through trial and error, and growing from every season we walk through as a pastor's wife. Pastors' wives are always flourishing!
7. We get to wear I Sleep With The Pastor t-shirts!
e get to unite with pastors' wives all over the country in wearing the I Sleep With The Pastor t-shirt. If you haven't bought yours yet, you can find it here.
