New Article at CWO!

I was so excited the other day to learn I’d won a Chronological Study Bible from my girlfriend Carrie’s blog, A New Heart. I’ve been drooling over them for quite some time and just couldn’t bring myself to make the purchase during the holidays.

In what ways are you being intentional about a closer walk with God in 2009? A CSB is just one of many tools to develop the intimate relationship with Him we all crave. I wrote a little article about that at CWO this month called, “Being a Well-Watered Woman.” I hope you will check it out! Aside from that, CWO’s editor Darlene has made lots of exciting format changes that I think you will love.

And yes, this is two posts in one day. Scroll down to sign up for the Spectacular Sin Book Club beginning soon!

Is Your Pastor Boring?

That could be a problem if you are married to him.

My article for Christian Women Online this month answers the following question submitted by a reader:

“Few people realize the dilemma of a pastor’s wife. Her husband is the ONLY preacher/pastor that she ever has! This is great, if he is a good preacher, but what if he is not that great a preacher? Is she doomed to spiritual starvation and boredom as she sits through his sermons each week?”

I have to admit when I first read this question I was a little surprised at the rawness of it. But, as I did some background reading in preparation for writing this article, I was shocked to find how common it is for pastor’s wives not to attend their own husband’s church. Read my take on the subject here.

And I’m curious, do any of you attend churches where the PW does not attend? Are you a PW who is a member of another fellowship? Without dishonoring either position, I’d love to hear your thoughts.


How Do I Look?

Hey Ministry Wives!

Ever wondered how you should dress? Of all the questions I had when I suddenly found myself the wife of a pastor, this one troubled me the most. Oh, my issues have evolved – trust me – but based on your emails this subject is very near and dear to your heart. I wrote an article for CWO this month called, The Clothes that Make the Woman, that addresses this very thing. Go check it out!

Also, if you are a lay person, please know this article is very relevant to you as well. You see, I don’t find anywhere in scripture where the PW is supposed to dress differently than any other woman at church. With that said, you might be interested in reading along also!
