A must-read for any church planter!,
This review is from: The Church Planting Wife: Help and Hope for Her Heart (Paperback)
Christine Hoover hit the nail on the head with this fantastic book. My husband and I planted a church in September of 2012, and it has not been an easy road to walk. Reading this book was like sitting down and talking with a new best friend who's been where I am now. Christine doesn't sugar-coat how hard the church-planting life is, but with gentle encouragement, she challenged me to embrace God's calling on my life, and reminded me that the Christian life is one of sacrifice and taking up your cross to follow Jesus. The book is chock-full of great advice on every subject from marriage to friendships to fear and stress, and from a solidly biblical perspective. I wish this book had come out before my husband and I started our church-planting journey. If you are a church-planter, are considering church-planting, or even if you're simply a woman who longs to be recklessly abandoned to God's calling on your life, you should this book!
