Item Description...
When her husband Lance accepted the pastorate of New Light Church in the small town of Southlake, Jacqueline thought the transition would be a cakewalk for a First Lady with her years of experience. After all, she'd seen and heard it all before. Little did she know she was about to embark on a journey of trials, self-doubt and pain, the likes of which she'd never imagined. How could God possibly get the glory out of this mess? Peek into the personal journal of this preacher's wife as she travels the road to hard earned lessons of unwavering trust and dependence on God.

Good message gets lost in incredibly poor translation  Sep 4, 2008
I really wanted to like Mikasenoja's "Confessions of a Preacher's Wife" because I love Christian fiction. But this novel was painful to read. I can read a book in a day or so, but it took me three weeks to finish "Confessions" because the writing was incredibly, amazingly, astonishingly poor. It was the worst I've ever read in my life. Mikasenoja thanked a few editors in her acknowledgments, but was the book edited at all? Bear with me here--I'm a copy editor and I writhe in agony at bad writing. Here's what bothered me:

1. Unnecessary, annoying commas (calling all crabby English teachers)
2. Flagrant misspellings of trademarks (Frappinchino, Scabble, and Kango hat are just a few)
3. Disuse of the hyphen in compound adjectives and misuse of the apostrophe
4. Author often forgets who she's talking about (called the son the father's name a few times)
5. Overuse of words, especially "customary." Used it six times (I think) in chapter nine alone...
6. No use of pronouns (I wear my church hats because I look good in church hats and I like my church hats...) How did this book get published?

I really could go on forever, but I want to remain objective. As much as I'd like to, I can't recommend this book to any intelligent person. It was trite, uneven, and overly descriptive. It almost seemed like a seventh grader wrote it. The Christian message--the only reason I gave the novel an extra star--just didn't come across as it could have because the writing was distracting.

Mikasenoja, I'm not trying to dog you at all. I'm a Christian woman, too, and I respect your vision. But if you don't get better editors, readers won't take your work seriously.
Hallelujah, it's true  Jun 29, 2008
Confessions of a Preacher's Wife is a wonderfully written adaption to what a preacher's wife go through. In order to survive being a preacher's wife you have to be prayed up. We can't solve all of the problems in the church, we can't stop the women from eyeing our husbands and wanting to be the First Lady of the Church, but we can learn how to take care of our family and keep our husbands eyes only on us. We can pray that God will continually keep them in His care, keep thier feet standing on the rock and their hands in His hands. Even though we are mistreated sometime we can only continue to stand on the promises of God and do His holy will because we realize that it's not all about us (preachers' wives) but it's about the God that is inside of us that shows through for the congregation to see.
Confessions  Jun 26, 2008
After reading Confessions of a Preachers Wife, I have a new understanding and respect for First Ladies. Mikasenoja gives the reader insight into the workings of the church, and the sacrifices that the first families are expected to make. This story unfolded in such an exciting way that I was captivated from the first page. At times I found myself laughing out loud at Mikasenoja's "keep it real" writing style. Whether you're a first lady or not, it's certainly an entertaining read. If you're a church member, I recommend giving a copy of the book to your First Lady...she'll thank you.
Awesome book!  Jun 21, 2008
I thoroughly enjoyed reading "Cofessions of a Preacher's Wife"! The book was totally engrossing and dealt with REAL issues faced by preachers/pastors and their wives/families! I loved it and look forward to reading other books by this author---especially since she's a soror!
Awesome!   May 22, 2008
What I can I say? All I can say is "AWESOME"! From your cousin, Kina Smith, I am so thankful to God for your awesome gift of writing, and you being able to help someone through this story of trials and tribulations, and through triumph and victory! I could not put this book down! Though I am a preacher's wife, and not a First Lady, I still connected with this story...In so many ways, you are able to share the emotions and situations with the First Lady in this book! It is so true that pastor's wives are not honored and respected, which is truly due to them. Especially after all they have to endure. Thanks for helping us understand the "life" a little better!

God bless you again on your second book, Mikasenoja! Keep doing what you are doing! I already see what God is doing and I know He has so much in store for you!

God Bless,
