Being a pastor's wife isn't the least bit about wearing fancy hats and attending church potlucks. It means helping a man who gets more complaints than any other, who deals with more messes than any other, and who has a more unreliable income than any other. Being a Pastor's wife means a lot of suffering and heartbreak, in addition to all the frustrations of normal life.

You can see Nancy Wilson's thirty years of experience most clearly in how she reacts to the difficult stuff -- the stuff that can make you (especially if you're married to a pastor) feel inadequate and under-qualified.

True Companion offers friendly, practical, and above all Christ-centered wisdom on how to help your husband in his vocation, how to deal with the "congregation at home" (kids), how much (or how little) a pastor's wife needs to be involved in the church, what sins tend to spring up in a pastor's home, how to deal with adversity from enemies (or from friends), and a host of other issues.

About the Author:

Nancy Wilson has been a pastor's wife and homemaker in Moscow, Idaho for more than thirty years. She is the author of several books, including The Fruit of Her Hands and Praise Her in the Gates, a contributor to Credenda/Agenda magazine, and a regular blogger at feminagirls.com. She and her husband Douglas have three children and sixteen grandkids, which makes for some crazy Sabbath dinners.

Review:

True Companion packs a punch as it moves priorities into their appropriate place for pastors' wives. On the other hand, it also graciously urges and reminds us that our strength to minister to our husband, children, and churches is from Christ alone. The simple yet poignant stories and principles that Nancy shares are both convicting and encouraging if we are willing to grow and learn, whether a new or seasoned wife in the ministry. ---Grace Driscoll

This is a book I wish I had when I first married a pastor around the same time as Nancy did. And it is a book that I will be handing out to many future pastor's wives that pass through this seminary town. I pray and joyfully expect this book to bear much fruit in many marriages, homes, and churches for the glory of the gospel and advance of His kingdom. ---Carolyn Mahaney, Pastor's Wife, Mother, Speaker, co-author of Feminine Appeal, and editor-in-chief of the Girltalk blog
