Confessions of a Pastors Wife

*I do not always listen to Christian music
*I never wear skirts
*I dont know everything about teenagers, you are better off asking my husband
*I don't know where your kid's sunday school class is
*I'd rather not publicly pray at every event I am a part of
*I don't like the 2nd Tuesday evening of the month
*I don't always want to be at church either
*I don't always have all the right answers
*I've never seen "Facing the Giants" or "Fireproof"
*I sneak candy into the movie theatre
*I don't always recycle
*I'd rather watch the movie than read the book
*I watch reality TV
*I subscribe to People magazine
*I check my Facebook during church sometimes
*When your kids are on a trip with my husband, my kids are home alone with me
*If you don't know the reference to a Bible verse, I probably don't either
*If it's a Friday night in the fall I'm probably at your kid's football game
*If there is a stain on the carpet at church, my kid probably did it
*If there is a typo in the bulletin it's not my fault
*I don't know why we sang that song instead of this song in the service today
*I don't know where the Senior Pastor is vacationing this week or who the guy preaching is
*I don't know the schedule for the Living Christmas Tree
*I don't play the piano or the organ
*If I fall asleep in church it's because your kids were at my house until midnight
*I don't mind if you call us in he middle of the night if there is a crisis!!!!

  1. My mom loved it when she was asked "Do you play piano? Do you sing? ....then what DO you do?" (my dad was a music minister)

  2. I saw your blog tonight through a friend and Girl, you are inside my head! I just sat and read every single one of your blog posts and it is as if I wrote them. I love your humor and also the honesty within. As pastor's wives we go through things that others just don't understand. Take the lifestyle for example...it's different. Ha! Keep writing and I agree that we pastor's wives need a place to support each other and laugh. Thanks for doing this!!
