Kristie Anyabwile on Friendship for the Pastor's Wife

Each week this season on By Faith, I’m talking with a guest about the ins and outs of friendship. As I wrote about in my book, Messy Beautiful Friendship, friendship isn’t easy for anyone; it takes time, intentionality, and lots of grace. And sometimes we have to navigate complexities and hurts in friendship that leave us uncertain and crushed. I’m right there with you, and my guests are here to help us think through it all.

Last summer I did a short series for pastor’s wives, and in one of the episodes I chatted with Katie Orr about friendship for the pastor’s wife. This is a topic we pastor’s wives just can’t get enough of, because although friendship for women is tough for just about everyone, there is a layer of complexity for pastor’s wives when it comes to relationships within the church. So we’re going to tackle this topic again in this season on friendship.

Today I’ve invited Kristie Anyabwile to join me to talk about friendship for the pastor’s wife from her perspective. Kristie is married to Thabiti, who is the pastor of a church they planted together in Washington D.C. a few years ago. She's also a mom and a writer.

I want to remind you that I’ll be closing out this season in December with an "Ask Me Anything" episode on all things friendship. My longtime friend Jo will be joining me to tackle your questions. You can submit your questions here. I look forward to hearing from you!
