Although this book is written primarily for pastor wives I gleaned a lot from it and recommend it to everyone involved in the church. Lisa, who is also the author of a blog and messageboard for pastors' wives gives advice that is ground in reality and in scripture. She tells it like it is through humour, personal experience, and information from the members of her site. She acknowledges something that most church members don't, pastors'wives are all at different points in their lives and need to have different priorities. Sometimes they are young and need to look after their family, sometimes they are working out of the home, and sometimes they have the experience and time to help with different church ministries but, they can't do it all. This book is written in a manner that everyone can understand, there is lots of humour, advice that makes sense, and a look inside the workings of a pastor's family life. Definitely a good read.

Such was my reaction fifteen years ago when my husband, Luke, told me he felt God was leading him into the gospel ministry. Even though I supported him wholeheartedly, I naively believed this calling was somehow just a gig. My job was simply to accompany him while he did his "thing." Reality didn't hit until a well-meaning gentleman enlightened me on the expectations of a minister's wife. He said, "The best thing you can do for Luke is learn how to play the piano. He'll have a much easier time being called as pastor of a church. Congregations love it when the pastor's wife can contribute. It's like they are getting a two for one!" If I knew then what I know now, I would have had a serious fight with the flesh to keep from sharing my thoughts on the buy-one-get-one-free concept. The restraint of the Holy Spirit is a beautiful thing! In my latest book review, You Can Still Wear Cute Shoes, and Other Great Advice From An Unlikely Preacher's Wife, by Lisa McKay, she takes you on her personal journey of what it was like to walk in those very words and shoes. I received this book compliments of B & B Media Group and would love to give a copy away to a minister's wife or any one who is feeling their lives are being called to do the will of God in the church. This book is high recommended to give all of us a reality check of what it's like to be the wife of someone who is called to serve in the church, from what the congregation is expecting, what the wife puts herself through and what God really says is necessary.
