As a former pastor’s wife and associate pastor myself of 15 years, I found this resource extremely relevant. Leading and Loving It peeks into the authors’ lives in ministry and provides biblical insight for dealing with leadership challenges. You will get tools to help regain or maintain the joy God offers as you follow Him in this calling on your life. You will rest in the knowledge that God, knowing your weaknesses and shortcomings, has called you to this work and role. You will realize you don’t have to face life and leadership alone. By following the guidelines in this book, you’ll find God has not deserted you; you are not alone in your struggles. Buy it. Read it. Do it. You will not be disappointed!
