As a woman leading a life of influence, you may find yourself without sufficient clarity or equipping for the challenges you face. For many, the role of wife of a leader is one thrust upon, rather than chosen. For others, it is a responsibility embraced but no less complicated to navigate. In either case, as one sharing a journey with a world-changer, this book is for you.
Debby Thompson has spent decades of listening to the voices of tried and tested women, and her experiences have instilled a sense of urgency in her to pass on the insights she has gleaned. Within The Leader’s Wife, she addresses some of the most difficult questions facing wives of leaders. With vulnerability and candor, Debby speaks from her own mistakes and discoveries.
The Leader’s Wife offers not a job description but a GPS. It is a blueprint—without how-to’s and ought-to’s—for igniting within you what the Creator has already designed. The Biblical teaching, personal stories, and hard-won lessons Debby communicates will guide and empower you to live with eternal intentionality.
