Check Out The New Gig!
So I hinted a few weeks back that I’d be doing something a little different with Christian Women Online Magazine. That something is a new column called, (insert some bugle blowing here) The Preacher’s Wife. :)
In this column I am encouraging you ministry wives to submit questions you’d love to have answered about your lives in ministry. Are you dealing with conflict? Don’t know how to dress? Not sure what your role is within the church? Ask away and let’s look at scripture together for your answers.
But WAIT – this column is not just for preacher wives! This is also a place for laypeople to express things they want their ministry families to know about them and to ask questions that will build relationship between the congregation and its leadership.
I’m convinced we can’t effectively reach out if we are unhealthy within. A huge part of being able to minister to a dying world is for the Body of Christ to be operating as He intended. I pray this new column will be one small tool for promoting that very thing.
So run over and take a look and by all means, start sending me your questions! I’ll form future articles out of your responses.
And feedback, girls! Give me feedback! If you have an idea of suggestion for how this area of CWO can be most beneficial, I’d be grateful to hear it.
Also, I want to be sure to point you to the totally fresh Internet Cafe’. Amy and Lori have re-styled and re-purposed this area of the magazine and if you didn’t love it already, you’re certain to make this a daily visit now. Run over for your daily cup of inspiration!
p.s. Are you a ministry wife? Have you joined the Married to the Ministry Blogroll? Go here for more info!
Lisa I am thrilled for you. You are most deserving of such a honor! You are an excellent writer!
Looking forward to hearing you Sunday at the ladies banquet!
this is really cool
CWO knows a good thing when they see it! Loved your debut and look forward to more each month.
And the new Cafe is fresh and fun!
What a great article and GIG!! I have a question for you. Besides your husband, has God given you a best friend to share your ups and downs with? Also, my best friend has always said that she doesn’t have a pastor and I say no but you have God. How does it feel at that moment when you may want to go to the altar at invitation time? :o) Being the best friend of a minister’s wife isn’t easy and to be honest I feel the need to smack a few people for her at times. hehe
Just wondering!! I hope I made sense. :o)
Lisa, that is wonderful. What a well deserved honor!
Lisa, I just read your intro on CWO and loved every word! I am looking forward to this new feature. -God bless, Laurie
Congrats on the new Gig! You’ll do a smashing job! Can’t wait to see the dialogue!
Well, you go girl!! I’m not surprised one bit…you are fabulous!!!
Proud of ya! You bless us all!
Awww! I’m so proud! Congrats!
I’d love to be added to your blogroll
blog is Splashing Grace
husband is the sr pastor (actually we’re in transition – this coming sunday will be our last as associate pastor at our current church – monday we’re moving to ny to pastor a church there)
Oh how cool! You really do have more computer skillz than you think. I promise! :)
And, girl, even though it’s for preachers wives, know that I will be tuning it also with my new responsibilities! :)
All I’m sayin’ is that maybe Luke’s calling is partly prophetic. Ever since he got you that awesome laptop, your writing has been in high demand. Something to think about . . . .
(LOVED the CWO article!! Ministry wives have never been so lucky!!)
(I am SOOO gettin’ that autographed copy. . . )
LOVED your first column. God’s grace and redeeming power are so awesome!
Looking forward to more!
Loved your column at CWO! I am sure it will be a blessing to many (including me, I’m a Preachers Wife myself). I too write a column for CWO so I am thrilled to meet you and serve with you there.
How cool is that?!?! Loved your first column and I’m excited that there is more to come. Congrats!
Congrats on the new gig! I already checked out your article and am looking forward to see what you write about in the future. Being a pastor’s wife can be challenging but I must say (write) that I love it!! I am sure the articles will be a blessing.
May the Lord bless the work of your hands as you work for Him to bring unity to the Body of Christ.
May God Bless each word you write. What an awesome honor and responsibility. I love reading your devotions. Too many pastor’s wife-blogs, etc don’t begin to touch the real meaning of the Christian walk. THANK YOU for staying true to God’s Word!
I just had a chance to read your debut article:) WOW, what a wonderful way to open, with the transparency and realness that are just so YOU! It was simply perfect!!
Hey, if you EVER get bored we’d love to have a POST or two from THE PREACHER’S WIFE….she is one neat lady!!:):):)
What an amazing ministry you have waiting for you girl!!
I just read your first column and it was fantastic! How exciting!!
Hey Lisa…you’ve launched! I’m not a preacher’s wife, but I stole a blessing from it anyway. Love your slant and the message it conveyed.
Proud of you!
What exciting news! Congrats! God will use the talents He gave you, and I look forward to reading your columns.
Lisa: I am not a pastor’s wife but I just wanted to say that I’m *thoroughly* enjoying your blog! can’t WAIT to learn more about you and your writings on the CWO column! oh, and I can’t wait to meet you at the Siesta Fiesta!!!
