I'm More Than the Pastor'. has been added to your Cart. Lorna Dobson knows firsthand the struggles and joys of being married to a pastor-and the questions, not the least of which is, “What is a â?˜pastor's wife,' anyway?” As her poll of hundreds of women reveals, the wife of a minister is rarely the piano-playing, committee-leading stereotype. With humor, disarming genuineness, personal stories, and wisdom rooted in Scripture, Dobson cuts through the labels. How I live has little to do with whether my husband is a pastor; rather, my life reflects my growth, or lack of it, as a Christian.

This is a straightforward book of advice for pastor's wives that mostly focuses on the church's expectations and the pastor's family's boundaries. The author draws upon the results of a that she sent to pastor's wives. I'm counting this as "a book by or about a pastor's wife" for 2016

  • it was ok. I like how it allows the layperson inside of the mind and the potential challenges of the pastor's wife

  • At first, I really didn't like this book, but I found I couldn't put it down. The more I read, the more I appreciated it. Now I recommend it to all of my seminary wife friends who are married to future pastors. The author shares so much practical experience , I appreciated her desire to share her viewpoint on her role as a pastor's wife.
    Some of my favorite parts: "Sorting the Laundry" Mrs. Dobson states, "Working through the responsibilities and commitments of our lives determine who and what comes first is a little like sorting the laundry: you wash the whites and colors seperately, but when you dress, you combine the colors with whites." And also, "No person is pain -free or trouble-free. If we were we could not be effective ministers." And finally, she shares and amazing section on "Caring for My Body" - I appreciate the new insights she shares on caring for the Physical well-being of our bodies (the vessels God uses for His work) with a biblical perspective!!

  • Very informative!! Great for Pastor's Wives!

  • A necessary read for all women in Ministry and a specific encouragement for women struggling to maintain their own identity while fulfilling the family Ministry Assignment.

  • I gave it as a gift to my daughter-in-law when our son was ordained into the ministry.

  • Bought this book to use with a friend whose husband has just started Bible college to be a pastor. It's written in a way that makes the reader feel that she is sitting on the author's couch listening to her tell her stories. I highly recommend it!

  • I have found this book very helpful and meaty! It addresses many of the practical issues that ministry wives face. It is not necessarily an easy read but is definitely worth taking the time to read and mull over the truths.

  • If you are a pastors wife or looking like you will be then this is a good book for you
