Format: Hardcover
I purchased this book with the hopes of finding encouragement, suggestions, and even a bit of "passing on of knowledge".

While reading this book I found parts of it very discouraging to us First Ladies/ Pastors Wives who are not married to "big time" Pastors. Especially when it got to the chapter about serving guests and etiquette.

Not everyone has hired help, and not everyone can afford the items that she suggest are "necessary" in order to properly serve/host guests in our homes.

I think some parts of the book were good like about the family and the importance of keeping family first.

But overall, I was disappointed to have purchased this book.

I just purchased this book. As soon as I began to read it, I began to cry. Finally, someone understands the call of God on my life as well as the struggle I am experiencing to fulfill this call. I have been married to my husband (who is a Pastor) for five years. I feel so alone. I felt like throwing in the towel. But this book has pointed me in the right direction. I thank God for the author. Thank you for allowing God to use you to touch so many lives for the Kingdom.

I AM NOT EVEN MARRIED, NOR DO I EVEN HAVE ANY PROSPECTS, LET ALONE A MINISTER AS A SPOUSE, AND YET I FOUND THIS BOOK TO BE ONE OF THE MOST ENCOURAGING, INSIGHTFUL, AND WELL BIBLICALLY BASED. I THINK THAT MEN SHOULD EVEN READ IT. IT GIVES THE BASIC FOUNDATIONS AND FUNDAMENTALS OF SERVING CHRIST THROUGH OBEDIENCE, GRACE, LOVE, AND FAITH. I AM SO SO SO FORTUNATE TO HAVE STUMBLED UPON IT. I'M GOING TO SUGGEST IT TO AS MANY FRIENDS WHO WILL RECEIVE IT, MARRIED OR NOT, MALE OR FEMALE. THE LESSONS AND SUGGESTIONS ARE BASED ON THE WORD, AND WE ARE ALL MADE IN THE IMAGE OF CHRIST. GOD BLESS DOTTIE PATTERSON.
