His Wisdom for Her World

Ministry

“How did Mother Teresa go about loving her neighbors, and why did she love them so richly?”

When I was invited to be the speaker at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington D.C., in 2012, I immediately thought of Mother Teresa, whose speech there in 1994 was the only one many people seemed to remember. It wasn’t until I had to write my own speech that I watched hers online. Mother Teresa […]

Life as a Pastor's Wife: Why Did I Sign Up for This?

Do you ever wake up in ministry to ask yourself…Why? Why did I sign up for this? Why do people isolate me? Why do people not trust my husband? If we were all honest with ourselves, we would say that at some point or another, we have asked the “why” questions in ministry. Typically, we […]

How to Avoid Ministry Burnout

By the age of twenty, I was a young pastor’s wife thrown headfirst into the deep end of ministry. Although I knew what ministry entailed, I thought the difficult times wouldn’t come until at least ten years down the road. That was definitely not the case. In that first year of ministry, I had seen […]

Ministry Wives: Join Your Husbands at the SBC Annual Meeting

Each year since marrying my husband, we’ve made our way to various host cities for the annual meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention.

Maybe You're {Not} Supposed to Do It All

“Take heed to the ministry which you have received in the Lord, that you may fulfill it.” ~Colossians 4:9 In our culture, moms are called on to do more than they have ever had to do before. While we also have more help with smartphones and fast food and efficient appliances, most moms feel the […]

"Who Do You Play For?"

 “…but God gave the growth. So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth. He who plants and he who waters are one, and each will receive his wags according to his labor. For we are God’s fellow workers. You are God’s field, God’s building.” I […]

Dear Woman Who Loves Jesus, Too

Dear Woman Who Loves Jesus, Too

Dear Woman Who Loves Jesus Too, With a public ministry, I am used to being told to “tone the Jesus down” or that some wish I wasn’t so “religious.” (Those are the tame ones I’m willing to share. Other messages have been a little more…umm…colorful.) While these messages used to paralyze me momentarily, I now […]
