Pastor’s Wives

Hi, I'm Kristy, and I grew up in a preacher's home.  Come to think of it, so did my mom and grandma. 

At 19 years old, I met and fell in love with a preacher-boy, Jeremy, who was a senior at the Bible college where we were both attending. We married in 2002, and since 2004 we have served together in full time ministry.  I'm not kidding when I say that our five kids have literally cut their teeth on the church pews!

There are unique blessings and one-of-a-kind struggles that come with ministry life.

Loneliness has been one of the deepest and most surprising struggles for me as a young pastor's wife.  A few years ago, I decided to write a mini series for pastor's wives here at the blog.  I was blown away by the response. I realized then that I was not alone in my struggles!

My heart is to encourage and connect with other preacher's wives, and to create a safe place for you to be understood and affirmed.  That's what the "ministry" posts on this blog are all about.

I'm so glad you're here!

Please pull up a chair, pour a cup of tea, and browse my articles for pastor's wives below.
