Lorna Dobson knows firsthand the struggles and joys of being married to a pastor-and the questions, not the least of which is, "What is a 'pastor's wife,' anyway?" As her poll of hundreds of women reveals, the wife of a minister is rarely the piano-playing, committee-leading stereotype.With humor, disarming genuineness, personal stories, and wisdom rooted in Scripture, Dobson cuts through the labels. "How I live has little to do with whether my husband is a pastor; rather, my life reflects my growth, or lack of it, as a Christian." In this revised edition of I'm More Than the Pastor's Wife, she includes new perspectives as a grandparent, soon-to-be empty-nester, and speaker. Here are frontline insights on-Making friends and cultivating personal support outside the church-Learning to handle expectations and pressures-Balancing time and using your gifts-Supporting your husband and growing closer to him-Prioritizing prayer for your husband, family, and church-Knowing your capabilities and limits-Dealing with "problem people" and church conflicts...?nd much more!
