Pastor's Wives Need A Pastor Too.

One of the missing elements of my life is that I don't really have a pastor, I had replaced this with listening to Christian radio while Camille was going to public school in our commute. I didn't realize how much I miss it! It's been a year without a pastor. Although some pastor's wives are fed through their husbands, I am not. I see a man standing up in the pulpit and even though his message reaches me, I can't help but also see the man who leaves his laundry on the floor, dirty dishes in the sink when they could easily be put in the dishwasher, etc.

I need pastoring too! I need someone to preach the word to me. To fix this, I'm going to listen Pastor James MacDonald at least once daily via podcast. He "reaches" me, preaches God's word in a way that I can relate, he's energetic and a strong speaker with a no-holds barr attitude. He interjects life with God's word and I LISTEN! Here's where you can listen too if you're interested:

iTunes Podcast: search for Walk in the Word or James MacDonald, free subscription
Pastor James McDonald website: http://www.walkintheword.com/broadcast.aspx

I'm using the iTunes podcast and I have archived broadcasts, right now I'm listening to: Replace a Complaining Attitude part A, which was broadcast 10/10/06. After I finish the Complaining broadcasts, I'll move on the to the current broadcast about Perservance. God is so good to give us what we need, when we need it at times.

Other iTunes podcast ministries: Focus on the Family (Dr. James Dobson), Joyce Meyer, Abounding Grace (Pastor Ed Taylor), Grace to You (Pastor John MacArthur), for about 20 minutes a day- you can listen too for free. You don't need an iPod, just a computer and iTunes software (also free).

I really appreciate your post. I too am a pastor's wife. It definitely has its challenges... and rewards. My husband and I talk a lot about spiritual issues daily so a lot of times I hear the same things again. He isn't a senior pastor, but I am out of the main service now because we just started a new children's ministry. I am going to schedule a time to lesson to a sermon podcast probably Francis Chan from Simi Valley, CA. I am so thankful for your leadership as a fellow homeschooling mother.
God bless!
