How to Stay Sane In Ministry {A Podcast}

I have not been a huge podcast listener in the past, but I'm slowly becoming a fan. I've found that listening to talks passes the time while I'm getting ready in the morning, making dinner, doing carpool, or cleaning (which, let's face it, there isn't much of these days).
I especially love hearing authors on podcasts, because then I know their voices and they can narrate in my head when I subsequently read their blog posts or their books. I've especially enjoyed Jess Connolly's interview about starting The Influence Network, Elyse Fitzpatrick's talk from the TGC Women's Conference on understanding the indicative/imperative divide (so helpful!), and I fell headlong into the Serial craze a few months ago. Currently, I've got our worship leader's new album on repeat because it is so.very.good. I realize this isn't a podcast but it's so.very.good. Did I mention that it's good?

Anyhoo, in honor of my growing love of podcasts, today's blog post is not something to read but something to listen to, perfect for your dinner-making, carpooling, and cleaning (or not cleaning) needs.

Last summer, I had the incredible privilege of speaking to a large gathering of pastor's wives. I shared with them the four primary conversations my husband and I must have on a consistent basis that helps us thrive in ministry (a.k.a How to Stay Sane In Ministry). I hope it's helpful to you in some way, whether you're the wife of a pastor, a church planter, a teacher, or a salesman.
