About the Book

Together we search for meaning in our personal lives. Together we nurture husbands, raise children whose halos are perpetually off-center, move from place to place, and try to keep our reputations translucently pure. Together, the wives of ministers and the wives of all other men struggle for the faith that will keep them on God’s life-fulfilling path.

Perhaps not every single word will fit you if you are a layman’s wife, but those that don’t certainly will help you understand your pastor better. Then with missionary zeal, you must see that each officer of your church has a copy! The compassion that will ensue may lead your minister’s family to believe the Kingdom is surely coming--and it is! So, hurry!
