Sacred Privilege By Kay Warren

Life as a pastor's wife offers meaningful opportunities to play a significant part in God's work, to witness and participate in the beauty of changed lives. Yet it also carries the potential for deep wounds and great conflict that can drain the joy out of service. Is it worth it? Oh, yes, says Kay Warren, wife of Pastor Rick Warren and cofounder of Saddleback Church. It is more than worth the risk--it's a sacred privilege.

Drawing on more than forty years in ministry in every possible size church, Kay provides encouraging principles and life lessons, along with intimate personal stories, that will give readers the confidence needed to lead and live well. Pastor's wives learn to

- accept who they are
- adapt to change
- help their children survive and thrive
- protect their private lives
- deal with criticism
- live with integrity
- develop an eternal perspective

Whether she is excited, struggling, or feeling broken and tired, every pastor's wife will find hope and encouragement for their calling in Kay's warm and wise words.

My Review

I hear so many people talking about how Pastors wives have it made. Well Kay Warren of Saddleback church wife of Rick Warren tells you like it is. No way do Pastors wives have it made. They stress about the church as much as the Pastor does. They pray for the church with the Pastor they work side by side with the church.
 I loved reading Warrens own personal story of being a Pastors wife. Lots of insight to her life.
There are some life lessons in this book as well.
The whole time I was reading this book I had a very special Pastors wife on my mind.
This book would make a wonderful gift for the First Lady in your church. Just a little thank you for all the praying I'm sure she does for you. To let her know that you love her too.
I gave this book 4 stars and I highly recommend it.
I received this book from the publisher for review. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
