The Big Move




We finally moved from Pennsylvania to Indiana for my husband to accept the pastorate at Washington Baptist Church.  It was long and exhausting, as expected, but to our surprise, it wasn't our toddler who struggled the most.  Our orange and white tabby seemed to be the most traumatized by the whole situation.  I have been pretty busy getting settled in that I am not surprised it has been over two weeks since writing.

When I think of all the expectations of being "pastor's wife" (most of them I have put on myself), I can get pretty overwhelmed.
That is when I have to get back to basics and remember the One who we serve is all-powerful, and
He can work through someone like me.

With this blog I hope:
1. to share what I am learning in the hopes that someone can benefit from it.
2.  to network with other pastor's wives and women faithful to their local church for the purpose of encouragement.

I hope this can be a spot to help each other and not someplace to vent and complain.  There are plenty of blogs where you can do that, but this isn't one of them.  We all know there are difficulties associated with being in the ministry, but I hope to dwell on the positives.

I figured I would have time to catch up on my reading, but almost don't know where to start.  So in an effort to address a current lack of knowledge on my part, I am going to be looking for some good resources on women's ministries.  I have found some stuff that looks OK, but nothing really jumps out at me.  I will post anything I find that is of benefit.
