A pastor’s wife gives readers a heartwarming glimpse into her life.

What is it like to be a pastor’s wife, to support her husband from the pew, and to be by his side as he shepherds the flock? What is her place in the church and in her husband’s ministry? Who is she to the congregation?
The book “The Journey of a Shepherd’s Wife” (ReadersMagnet, 2018) by Virginia Cooper Stokes should provide readers a glimpse into the life of a pastor’s wife; who, in some ways, seems to be the most scrutinized person in church and her status is somewhat overshadowed by that of her husband’s. Nevertheless, she plays an important role not just in her husband’s work in the Lord’s vineyard but also in his emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
“The Journey of a Shepherd’s Wife” is divided into three parts: part one, “God’s Calling and Our Ministries”; part two, “Experiences and Lessons of Life”; and part three, “Family and Medical Problems”. The author, who worked one time at the Baptist Sunday School Board and went to the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, felt the calling to be a pastor’s wife even before she married her minister husband.
“I embraced the calling to support my husband and to love the people that we were to minister to in the communities in which we would live,” said the author in the introduction of her book.
Through the author’s narrative, readers know that being a pastor’s wife is no bed of roses. There were ups and downs in life and challenges endured but also lessons learned and spiritual growth experienced. God works in and through their lives.
By reading this book, readers will understand that the pastor’s wife has a ministry to her husband that no one else in the church can fulfill. She serves unpaid but she knows her worth to her husband and God. Her love, friendship, and companionship are vital to his strength in carrying out the Lord’s work. This book should make people stop, think and pray for their pastor’s wife.
