Books abound offering advice to pastors---but when it comes to the unique vocational challenges of a pastor's wife, resources are rare. Now Patterson, editor of The Woman's Study Bible, provides you with solid insights on everything from character and conduct, to commitments, community, and more. A must-have guide, whatever your denomination!Publishers Description
Prolific author and Christian personality Dorothy Patterson offers A Handbook for Ministers' Wives for women who are in the challenging role of being married to men who serve in ministry positions. This book addresses the personal commitments to Christian character and conduct a minister's wife must make and the commitment to family relationships to her husband, her children, and the extended family as well. It also speaks definitively to the ministry of community a minister's wife herself is called to in the civic and church arenas.

|Loved it! Nov 11, 2006|
|I loved Mrs. Patterson's book. She shared some great ideas that I have implemented. For instance, the portable prayer baskets. I am making six up for Christmas presents, three of which are going to my daughters-in-love (as she puts it). In each one I plan to put a copy of this wonderful book as each are involved in the ministry to some degree. |
|Not Very Encouraging Apr 10, 2006|
|I purchased this book with the hopes of finding encouragement, suggestions, and even a bit of "passing on of knowledge".|
While reading this book I found parts of it very discouraging to us First Ladies/ Pastors Wives who are not married to "big time" Pastors. Especially when it got to the chapter about serving guests and etiquette.
Not everyone has hired help, and not everyone can afford the items that she suggest are "necessary" in order to properly serve/host guests in our homes.
I think some parts of the book were good like about the family and the importance of keeping family first.
But overall, I was disappointed to have purchased this book.
