Not impressed
I don't buy it. I am a pastors wife and going through things not even mentioned in this book. She has not experienced it All. She uses a lot of emotion to convey ideas and experiences. While I found many things helpful, I did not find this book encouraging, but rather sad. All through the book, she talks about her son that died and talks a lot about Saddleback and her experiences there. I was really turned off by her 'I've had 40+ years of experience" attitude.

Wonderful and turthful testimony of a woman who has been through it all!
Where was this book before I became a Pastor's Wife?! Kay Warren, provides such a wonderful testimony from her years before marriage, to the difficulties of navigating life as a new married couple in ministry, to raising children, leading small groups, having friends, church planting and everything in between. This was such an honest look into the true challenges of being a pastor's wife, while reminding us of what a wonderful and sacred privilege it is.

I have been encouraged and will definitely recommend this book to other Pastor/ministry wives for years to come!

Kay Warren narrated the book herself and you can hear the emotion in her voice when reading about the more difficult times they have faced as well as the pure joy and peace when reading about Jesus.

I highly recommend this book to women in ministry as well as women who would like to know what it's like to be in ministry!

*I received a free copy of this book from christianaudio.com in return for my honest review.

Loved it
Great book. Wonderful personal story and so encouraging. I am not even a pastor's wife, I am actually not even married, but I still thoroughly enjoyed this book. Kay Warren's grace-filled story is encouraging to any Christian.
