“At last, here is a much-needed guide for pastors’ wives penned by seasoned pastors’ wives! In preparing future pastors for ministry, my wife Mae and I have always sought to hold special teaching times for seminary wives in our home to address many of the issues that these women of God handle so well in this new P&R book. I believe this is now the standard text for seminary wives as well as those pastoral families—pastor and wife—who should set apart time to revisit the timeless themes. A few years ago, I wrote a song called ‘Thank God for the Pastor's Wife.’ After reading this book, I starting singing it again! I commend this wonderful collection of thoughtful and biblical essays to the church with joy and confidence!”

Letters to Pastors' Wives is an exceptional book written by seventeen different pastor's wives and one pastor's daughter. The letters are personal, warm, convicting, and engaging. The wives' use of Scripture shows not only each wife's maturity but also her love for the Lord and for her husband. I highly recommend this book to all women and especially to pastors' wives!
