1. Oh wow, sister, I hear you. I’ve been a pastor’s wife for a decade now, and I had no idea how much it would cost our family sometimes. It’s so true that we have to know when a crazy season is coming up and cram in a bunch of time before it happens. Your list is great advice!!

  2. This was for me today! My husband has been in ministry for almost 9 years and a senior pastor 4 of those 9. He also works a full time job and trying to transition into full time ministry. We have an 18 month old and 4 year old. Many times I feel like a”single parent”. We are very busy it seems all the time! I’m definitely taking your advice and scheduling those date nights and family nights! We need them!! I thank God for these posts, they have came at a great time!! God bless you and your ministry!!

  3. LOVE and NEEDED THIS!! My husband and I are in the ministry as children’s pastors as well as we run the outreach ministry. We are part time but, as I am sure you know, when in the ministry whether you are paid full time, paid part time or volunteer, you WORK full time. On top of the ministry, my husband works a 40 hour a week job, I homeschool our four kids and babysit another and I have a blog ministry that includes a magazine. Oh and our kids play sports. Our lives are full to the max. Life is getting more and more busy with each passing year. But we have to be intentional about spending time together. It is so important. Thank you for the reminder and encouragement!!

    1. I think the most important thing is knowing we’re doing God’s will and seeking His wisdom. If it’s His will it can fit in the schedule, if it’s not it’s a distraction.
