Q: Was it hard to assimilate the role of "pastors wife”?
I had an idea what I was getting into from when we were dating.
I have enjoyed being involved with church activities even before marriage so spending a lot of time in and around church was nothing new.
The hardest part was dealing with self-imposed burdens and expectations.
Q: What are your views on family worship? Is it a thing of the past or is it as important as personal prayer?
It is very important and we have been doing it with our kids ever since they were born. Even when they were too young to understand it.
It should be age appropriate and change as the kids are at different developmental stages. It’s all about the kids learning about God.
Being involved with the kids sabbath school class and adventurer club provides you with great ideas.
Q: What are some of the benefits of being married to a pastor? What about the downsides?
community, involvement, friends
Q: How did having kids change your view of God?
I became less afraid of asking God for things I didn’t deserve (especially since I don’t deserve any of the blessings I constantly receive).
I became more trusting
I became more dependent on God, or more comfortable with my dependence on God.
