PASTORS' spouses

This section is especially for you

Welcome to this part of our online ministry of encouragement to those who are married to pastors, ministers, missionaries etc.

This part of the ministry is geared to encourage you in the unique set of circumstances spouses often find themselves in, especially in our Scottish church culture. We want to keep it real, honest and God centred as we look to explore some of the common issues that we experience due to ministry. We hope to feature encouraging contributions from others who have gained wonderful insights over many years.

We want to encourage you that you are not alone and indeed, that you may be enlightened to discover that ‘behind the veil’ many of us are wrestling with very similar issues. We firmly believe…. “BUT God”….. He IS able … and He is with you in all the ups and downs, never leaving you or abandoning you. Always loving you and wanting you to feel that love.

We love you, we are for you, and our prayer is that you know the peace, joy, grace and strength of God as you journey alongside your spouse in serving God.

 

🙂 We would love to hear from you 🙂

Share your story with us or let us know any topics you’d like to see covered for your encouragement, growth, and blessing.

***We never share information or details with any other ministry or third party.***

Even Ministers Suffer From Suicidal Thoughts

My cousin’s trembling voice uttered the unthinkable. “Kay, I need to let you know that Wayne took his life this morning.” My knees collapsed under me. “No! How can this be? What happened? Why? What was wrong with him?” My mouth formed tumbling questions despite my...

It took me a while to notice, too long to save one life, but just in time to rescue the others. The lives of my houseplants! On closer inspection of the small curled up leaves the other day, I discovered that most of my pots were literally bone dry. I’m not usually so...
