I have just returned from a Metro Conference with other Minister’s wives. It is always refreshing to meet with someone else “in my shoes.” What is it about just being with other minister’s wives that helps us so much?
Is it knowing that someone else has encountered some of the same things that we have?
Is it knowing that someone else can understand us?
Is it knowing that others have encountered problems in their churches and survived?
Is it knowing that others deal with balancing their family and church?
Is it knowing that we are not alone even though lonely at times?
Is it having that confidence that we can really share with one another?
Is it just the presence of being with other women who love the Lord and love His church?
Is it in knowing that someone understands the pressures we face?
I don’t know what it is but I do know that time with other minister’s wives can be refreshing. If it has been a while for you then I suggest you find another friend in ministry and if you can’t get together in person over lunch then at least give a phone call. It is time well spent when you can refresh yourself because then you can refresh others! Blessings! Jennifer
