That beautiful woman that happens to be married to your Pastor - whom you affectionately call the Pastor’s wife is worthy of honor. No, scratch that. Double honor!
Like Eve, who had no say in the matter, she married into the role she serves with a heart full of grace.
It’s a role that one pastor said is one of the toughest and loneliest jobs in the church.
A Pastor’s wife goes on record saying that “[pastor wives] are trying to serve God to the best of our abilities while navigating the challenges of leadership and the pulls of life”.
Okay, wait! Hold up! Sister girl needs our help.
And if you’re a woman you know that your Pastor’s wife is passionate about ministering to other women. It’s the heart God has given her.
Let’s show her how much we appreciate her and we got her back!
Below are 3 ways you can honor your Pastor’s wife (that she won't forget!)
1. Thank You Note
Share a story of how she has helped you. Thank her for her service and example. Ephesians 4:29 tells us to use our words to edify others that it may minister grace to the hearers. Your words will build her up and cause her to be a more effective, dedicated servant of the Lord. A handwritten note will add a personal touch that she will not forget.
2. Really Pray For Her
Add her to your prayer list and devote 5 minutes to praying for her specific needs. This Pastor’s Wife shares 20 Things Every Pastor’s Wife Wants You To Know About Her. This list is a great place to start in regards to praying for her. There is plenty of insight to what she wishes people knew about her. An amazing thing happens when we begin to pray for others. We receive insight on how to serve them. Be on the look out for other opportunities of honor as a result of regularly praying for your pastor’s wife.
3. A Tangible Gift
Women love gifts. Period. Even if it’s not her love language. Galatians 6:6 admonishes us who receive instruction in the Word should share all good things with our instructor. Find out what she likes and bless her with it. Gift cards for the item are perfect as they don’t expire and she may need time to redeem and enjoy it. Check out our Pastor’s Wife Tee. It makes a great gift and sums up her call greatly. It’s a big hit!
As your Pastor’s Wife pours out to you and others make sure she knows how much she is loved and appreciated.
