The Pastor’s Wife: Strengthened by Grace for a Life of Love by Gloria Furman is a scripture-rich book filled with inspiration for ministry wives in all areas. Being married to a man in ministry is a difficult position with various challenges and constant opposition that can lead to discouragement. However, we must not allow those moments to remove our joy of serving God through this call to serve others alongside our husbands. In this encouraging and humorous book, Gloria Furman offers pastors’ wives and ministry wives reminders that Christ stands ready to help regardless of the circumstance. God will guide us through late-night counseling sessions, unrealistic expectations, issues with parishioners, desire for more time with our husbands, and even members’ complaints about our husbands’ preaching.
Mrs. Furman did a PHENOMENAL job explaining the duties of a ministry wife while encouraging us in every effort. I appreciated her testimonials, relatable anecdotes, and true understanding of women that are blessed with husbands in ministry. Her repeated emphasis on giving grace to ourselves, our husbands, and the people we serve was spot on. She also provided plenty of scripture to help us endure, especially for those times when we must serve through our hard seasons. Overall, it is a beautiful gift and privilege to be married to a servant of God and He has equipped us to handle it all. It is my prayer that all ministry wives that read The Pastor’s Wife by Gloria Furman or my review feel heard, understood, and have renewed joy as they serve God alongside their husbands and love their churches.
