To My Ministry Friends...

To all the pastors wives and women in ministry:


(Sounds so formal...)


Here's a link to a online conference that I signed up for called JustONE.  It looks like I'm going to LOVE it.  And I think you might to.


If you sign up, and did I mention it's free, then let me know so I can "chat" with you about what you think of it.


Go check it out HERE for more information.


I'm all about learning from other ladies in the trenches.  Well sometimes ministry feels like the trenches.  And other times...an older gentleman in your church gives you a hard time about how dirty the inside of your crock pot is (because you brought it to mid-week church to make hot cocoa in for the Bible Club Kids and he cleaned up afterwards) but he's only teasing and you don't care because really someone SHOULD clean the thing.  But he ends up feeling guilty about it so at 8:15 PM the next evening he drops by a ginormous ham for your family...as a peace offering.  And I like ham.  Ministry is GOOD!


*please note, you should read that entire last paragraph in one breath, because that's how I would say it if we were chatting in person.*


Long live the run-on sentences!


Now go register...I hate going to things by myself.

  2. Hello Sarah! I found your blog by chance when I was typing into google for a friend's blog - another pastor's wife enduring life in the parsonage! I live in Minnesota. And I am a youth pastor's wife - and totally new to 'the job' of full time ministry.
    I was told about this conference by another pastor's wife, and completely forgot all about it. Your blog reminded me to register & join in. I'm excited to see what they have in store, and I look forward to "Chatting" with you, and hearing what you thought about it.
    Thanks for your reminder!!

  3. Hi Sarah! I hope you were able to watch this morning--if not, it'll be on in 7-8 hours again. You will not be disappointed, this I know. My husband and I planted a church in our tiny midwest (central IL) hometown almost 8 years ago now and at times it is an isolating place to be, but you know what? Leading and Loving It and the JUST ONE conference the past two years have been such an encouragement to me. I even jumped off the deep end and grabbed a couple of pastor's wife girlfriends last September and headed to Nashville for the Pastor's Wife retreat--and it wasn't scary! :) That was the first time in my whole life where I walked into the room and felt like everyone in that room "got it"...they smelled what I was stepping in. :) Praying it will be an encouragement for you too!
