Item Description...
A serious yet good humored look at the unique challenges facing pastors9 wives in the 21st century. Pastor9s wives confront unique challenges, both as wives of a public figure and as members of the congregation. Lorna Dobson, whose husband, Ed, is senior pastor of Calvary Church in Grand Rapids, MI, speaks from experience. In this open and caring discussion she addresses the dynamics that pastors9 wives face in a church culture that is in transition to a new era in the 21st century. Dobson9s writing has been praised for its combination of good humor and serious advice and for its balance of scriptural basis, personal illustrations, honesty, and sincerity. In this revised edition she draws on fresh experiences and mature reflection. Here she delves further into the ways wives can support their husbands9 ministries, and she explores the dynamics of dealing with "problem people" and conflicts between pastor and congregation. "Although this book is an easy read, Dobson isn9t always easy on readers, using a tone of gentle exhortation .[She] is well read and includes great quotes from authors .This book will help any pastor9s wife wanting to fine-tune her role." Bookstore Journal

Publishers Description
Lorna Dobson knows firsthand the struggles and joys of being married to a pastor---and the questions, not the least of which is, 'What is a 'pastor's wife, ' anyway?' As her poll of hundreds of women reveals, the wife of a minister is rarely the piano-playing, committee-leading stereotype. With humor, disarming genuineness, personal stories, and wisdom rooted in Scripture, Dobson cuts through the labels. 'How I live has little to do with whether my husband is a pastor; rather, my life reflects my growth, or lack of it, as a Christian.' In this revised edition of I'm More Than the Pastor's Wife, she includes new perspectives as a grandparent, soon-to-be empty-nester, and speaker. Here are frontline insights on -Making friends and cultivating personal support outside the church -Learning to handle expectations and pressures -Balancing time and using your gifts -Supporting your husband and growing closer to him -Prioritizing prayer for your husband, family, and church -Knowing your capabilities and limits -Dealing with 'problem people' and church conflicts . . . and much more

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Couldn't Put It Down  Jul 10, 2005
At first, I really didn't like this book, but I found I couldn't put it down. The more I read, the more I appreciated it. Now I recommend it to all of my seminary wife friends who are married to future pastors. The author shares so much practical experience , I appreciated her desire to share her viewpoint on her role as a pastor's wife.
Some of my favorite parts: "Sorting the Laundry" Mrs. Dobson states, "Working through the responsibilities and commitments of our lives determine who and what comes first is a little like sorting the laundry: you wash the whites and colors seperately, but when you dress, you combine the colors with whites." And also, "No person is pain -free or trouble-free. If we were we could not be effective ministers." And finally, she shares and amazing section on "Caring for My Body" - I appreciate the new insights she shares on caring for the Physical well-being of our bodies (the vessels God uses for His work) with a biblical perspective!!
inside look and humorous  Apr 7, 2000
This book was revealing in the sense that I had no idea how congregations demand things of the clergy. L. Dobson is humorous in her writing and appears to have an intelligent attitude to being a pastors wife. The many anecdotes are as funny as most pulpiteers.
