Item Description...
Donald Harvey and Gene Williams, a marital therapist and a pastor respectively, bring their individual unique experiences of mixing marriage and ministry to this joint effort. Believing that God's design is for intimate marriages, including ministry marriages, the authors explore the myth that ministry couples are somehow exempt from common human frailties that may threaten their marriages. The authors give insight into the struggles of both the pastor and the spouse, addressing issues such as expectations placed on a pastor and the feelings of competing with "the ministry" that many spouses face. Not wanting to paint a picture of extremes - of viewing life in the ministry as being either gloriously wonderful or the pit of despair -- the authors achieve a balance by acknowledging the unequaled rewards of life in ministry while conceding that ministry life has its own set of unique challenges. These challenges affect all involved - the pastor, the spouse, and the marriage. The authors succeed in offering practical ways for couples to achieve vital ministry while maintaining fulfilling marriages.

Publishers Description
Is your marriage buckling under the stress of ministry? Does your spouse resent the intrusions on family time? Are your kids rebelling against unrealistic standards of conduct imposed on them? The glass house of ministry leaves no place to hide. The high visibility of you and your family affects everyone in the household. Survival begins with accepting the fact that there is no escape. Yes, people are watching - but that's okay. Donald Harvey and Gene Williams give you insights on having a successful ministry AND focusing on a healthy, happy relationship with your spouse and your kids. Your glass house can be a crystal palace
