#163: Can You Be a Pastor’s Wife and Not Go Crazy? Part 2

Being Intentional About a Healthy Journey

Pastor's Wife

Pastor’s wives can be the most overlooked group of people in the body of Christ. It’s often assumed that she will just take care of herself. Meanwhile, unhealthy demands and expectations are added on that do not cultivate a healthy environment.

As we continue the discussion about the life of a pastor’s wife, we want to uncover the ungodly expectations and pressures that often get put on her heart and life. Some of this can be agreements in her own heart, but many cultural expectations can be very unhealthy.

We want to call out those unhealthy expectations while also continuing healthy mindsets that can promote emotional health and longevity. A lot of it has to do with addressing the value system of the home. We have to raise the importance of marriage health and overall family health. It often gets sacrificed in a way we believe God did not intend. Many times ministry takes over to the point that the marriage and children take a back seat in the “way back” seating.

In part 2 of this topic, we discuss the following:

  • More of the unhealthy expectations that are put on a pastor’s wife.
  • Tough decisions we had to make to preserve the health and wholeness of our own family.
  • What are some healthy mindsets that help preserve health and sanity?
  • Do you even realize that there are options you can choose that are much healthier?

We pray that our vulnerability and honesty helps you to pursue a heart healthy marriage and home in your life.
