... a Christian woman always wondering where her place was in the body of Christ. A situation appears and she sees it as an opportunity to serve God in a way she never has before...as a pastor's wife. Little did she know, there would be a cost involved. She would learn to be stretched beyond her comfort zone and would face rejection, invasion and bitterness. She fell into the self-pity-I'm-a-victim-nobody-else-matters-it's-all-about-me trap. It was a deep one that was difficult to climb out of, but as she gained the strength to do so, she began learning what her role was in the ministry. JoEllen had to learn to set boundaries and find a balance between being a helpmeet, a homeschooling mom and a pastor's wife and discover how to serve and protect her husband. Through this journey you will see how the Holy Spirit did heart surgery on her and brought her to a place of repentance where blessings would abound. Included are interviews with other pastors' wives revealing their own heartfelt thoughts. In this behind the scenes view, you will be reminded that communication is the key to get through the many unforeseen events that can come your way in the ministry and life in general.
