What It's Like to Be a Pastor's Wife

It's guest post day! Instead of a written post, a reader, Phyllis Rice, has submitted a video post of an interview she did with a women's ministry in her area about being a pastor's wife. Phyllis has been a pastor's wife for 26 years, 20 of those in South Carolina and the last six in West Virginia, and she shares her hard-won wisdom with us in this video. In addition, her interview will help you, if you are not a pastor's wife, understand your pastor's wife and how best you can relate with and encourage her.

More specifically, she answers the following questions:

How is being a pastor's wife different from being the wife of a layperson?
What are the roles and expectations associated with being a pastor's wife?
How have you grown spiritually in this role?
What are the most challenging things and biggest blessings about being a pastor's wife?
How can women encourage the pastor's wife?

Enjoy! And thank you for sharing, Phyllis.
