Good Pastor’s Wife
Ministry leadership + lifestyle
What makes a good pastor’s wife?
Expectations are one of the biggest caveats for young women entering the ministry with their husbands. Questions like, “How do I be a good pastor’s wife?” + “How does a pastor’s wife look/act/serve?” bring thousands of women to this site every year.
I firmly believe that a woman who knows her purpose + feels confident in who she is created to be will be an amazing pastor’s wife. Whether you’re a veteran or newbie, WELCOME. Here you’re free to relax, be real + enjoy the warm embrace of like-minded friends who understand and accept you.
HI THERE, I’m KRISTY.
Advid reader; multi-tasking writer; introvert; tea-drinker; homeschooling mom; fourth-generation pastor’s wife. I met my preacher boy, Jeremy, at Bible college when I was 19 + we’ve served together in vocational ministry since 2004. We’re the insanely busy parents of three teens + two young sons (+ one spoiled Australian shepherd) + make our home in the great state of Texas.
