About the Author:

Catherine J. Stewart is a pastor's wife and a graduate of Queens University in Belfast, where she studied theology. Originally from Northern Ireland, she and her husband, Neil, now live in Savannah, Georgia, with their five children.

Review:

"At last here is a much-needed guide for pastors' wives penned by seasoned pastors' wives! In preparing future pastors for ministry, my wife, Mae, and I have always sought to hold special teaching times for seminary wives in our home to address many of the issues that these women of God handle so well in this new P&R book. I believe this is now the standard text for seminary wives, as well as those pastoral families—pastor and wife—who should set apart time to revisit the timeless themes. A few years ago I wrote a song called, 'Thank God for the Pastor's Wife.' After reading this book, I starting singing it again! I commend this wonderful collection of thoughtful and Biblical essays to the Church with joy and confidence!"
—Dr. Michael A. Milton, Fourth Chancellor of Reformed Theological Seminary, Author, Singer-songwriter

"What a privilege to glean wisdom from these women who have served faithfully in the church and in the home as pastor's wives. I was challenged, encouraged and refreshed by this insightful and helpful book."
—Trisha DeYoung, Wife of Kevin DeYoung, Senior Pastor, University Reformed Church, East Lansing, Michigan

"An exceptional book written by seventeen different pastor's wives and one pastor's daughter. The letters are personal, warm, convicting, and engaging. The wives' use of Scripture shows not only each wife's maturity but also their love for the Lord and for their husbands. I highly recommend this book to all women and especially to pastor's wives!"
—Martha Peace, Biblical Counselor; Author of The Excellent Wife

"I have spent more than thirty years in a pastor's family—first as a pastor's daughter and then as a pastor's wife—and this is the first book I have read addressing the full range of experiences in ministry life with the perspective that this is truly a life of privilege and blessing. When my husband finished seminary and began at our first church, I had no such book, though I could have used one! Stewart has assembled a much-needed tool for pastor's wives and addresses our unique situation with gentleness, honesty, and wisdom."
—Megan Hill, Blogger at SundayWomen.com; Contributor to Christianity Today's Her.meneutics ---

Letters to Pastors' Wives is an exceptional book written by seventeen different pastor's wives and one pastor's daughter. The letters are personal, warm, convicting, and engaging.
