The Perks of being a Pastor's Wife

I just love being a Pastor's Wife. I love being a part of the ministry and seeing folks lives changed by the hand of God. It is so awesome to be able to minister alongside of my husband on a daily basis.

Yes, I can not deny the fact that there are many perks that come with the title of "Pastor's Wife".

I know that there are people constantly praying for my sweet husband and children on a consistent basis. Are they praying for them because they have to put up with me? Not so sure...but I am still grateful for the prayers.

Daddy's work is at church and the kids think that is way cool!

We get to go on lots of fun trips and sleep like we did when we went away to summer camp!

We get to be involved in people's lives...and I don't mean just snooping and gossiping. I LOVE our people and LOVE being involved in their lives.

We get lots of great food cooked for us...which means I don't have to cook and because of that we are getting an awesome meal.

Lots of hugs!

The chance to minister to people and share the Love of Christ!

Growing new Believers.

Friends that we can count on through it all.

And last but not least, waking up to this beautiful sight on a glorious Sunday Morning(when my mind should have been on the things of God):

What is that hanging at the end of the driveway, you ask? Take a good look below and see what those crazy kids wrote on a sheet!

Yes, it is a verse. That verse is Luke 23:34..."Father forgive them, for they know not what they do"

They even tried to be spiritual in the midst of tragedy. Tragedy, you say? Yes it was a tragedy, because this was the first in a long time that our yard actually looked REALLY good. We had been working all weekend in the yard and then those hooligans(from our church) had to come mess it up.

Well Boys, you just best be ready. When you least expect it, we are gonna get ya! We might be "old", but we still have a few tricks up our sleeve's!

So that my friends is one of the "perks" of being a pastor's wife!
