Life as a pastor's wife is a unique calling. Some women accept it whole-heartedly while others approach it more apprehensively. Yet either way, when seminary ends and ministry begins, she will face very unique challenges and joys.
When her husband was in seminary, Catherine J. Stewart greatly benefited from regular meetings with veteran pastors' wives who shared their wisdom and experience with her so that she could be encouraged and prepared for the life ahead of her. In Letters to Pastors' Wives, she seeks to do the very same for other women who are in the same place she was. Each chapter is a letter written by different pastors' wives and even a pastor's daughter covering different helpful topics such as personal priorities, expectations, hospitality, friendships, church conflict, loneliness, and criticism.
