She enjoyed the rewards of pastoral service, endured its fiery trials, and learned to find the light and comfort of God's presence when ministry gets ugly. Nan is a Bible-study teacher, author, and speaker who delights in helping Christian women find God in their darkest hours.

It is clearly evident that she wants you, a wife, to understand your role through commitment and purpose. Her select bible verses parallel with the emotional journey that she and her husband had through the days of their lives. What one can take away from her journey of being a Pastor's wife or wife are: (1) read the bible for direction -she gives details as to how; (2) pray with purpose and listen - she explains what happens when this is done; and (3) breathe and give breath in your walk-she will elaborate about what this means.
It is a book that needs to be in the hands of those you love and are married as a Pastor's wife or wife.

I do like to read Amish or Christian based stories, however, not too over powering.
I like Annie Oakley and Karen Kingsbury type reads, which of course have a Christian based theme due to the genre.
This one was more 'preachy' where I am concerned, however, this MY opinion. But for others, this could be right up your street.
Nan Jones has written a very well laid out book based around being a Pastor's wife.
The 'job' of being an Elder or Pastor or such in any religion takes up time looking and caring for their 'sheep' [congregation] and needs.
This may lead the wife feeling at first that he is doing a good job, she is proud of him, however, it can become a lonely job, also, it affects how others in the congregation would treat you.
There is a kind of spiritual war going on within her.

For a reader who loves hymns, scriptures quoted relating to different thoughts, events, circumstances [a bit like Dot from Eastenders] then I would say that you would be comfortable with this. I wasn't so much as I found it more unsettling as it was more 'preachy' to me than a story.
Well written though, but a good Christian read for its genre
