Publisher's Summary

Life as a pastor's wife offers meaningful opportunities to play a significant part in God's work, to witness and participate in the beauty of changed lives. Yet it also carries the potential for deep wounds and great conflict that can drain the joy out of service. Is it worth it? Oh, yes, says Kay Warren, wife of Pastor Rick Warren and cofounder of Saddleback Church. It is more than worth the risk - it's a sacred privilege.

Drawing on more than 40 years in ministry in every possible size church, Kay provides encouraging principles and life lessons, along with intimate personal stories, that will give listeners the confidence needed to lead and live well. Pastor's wives learn to

  • Accept who they are
  • Adapt to change
  • Help their children survive and thrive
  • Protect their private lives
  • Deal with criticism
  • Live with integrity
  • Develop an eternal perspective

Whether she is excited, struggling, or feeling broken and tired, every pastor's wife will find hope and encouragement for their calling in Kay's warm and wise words.

Thank You!

I’m the daughter of a Pastor and I sense in a lot of ways that the Lord will also use me in ministry the way he has used my parents. I’m Nigerian (so go ahead and factor the huge cultural divide) and I could never understand why I had to go through all I have been through. I’ve been attacked, physically, spiritually, emotionally, and I’ve seen the strain the ministry has taken on my parents marriage and our lives as their children. Thank you, thank you, and thank you a million times over for sharing your story with us the upcoming generation of pastors wives and children. Thank you for not taking all the experiences you had to the grave without telling the world how to overcome and how you overcame. Thank you for lighting my fire, renewing and wetting my heart with God’s love afresh. I picked up this book at the point where I was basically asked to leave the church. I was completely over it honestly, but this book reminds me that God is still passionate for his people and that my utmost goal is not whether people accept me or not but that people are pointed to Christ through the same ministry that threatens to burn us. It’s not a burning I realize, it’s the Refiners Fire. Thank you for being transparent and opening up your past, your wounds and your scars. Thank you for this great legacy, and thank you for all your years of service.

Amazing

I was thoroughly blessed by Kay's journey thus far and she has helped me in my own walk as a Pastor's wife, losing our 23 year of age son to a homicide and enduring all the joys and pains of life. Was a true blessing for me ...

Will Read this Every Year!

What made the experience of listening to Sacred Privilege the most enjoyable?

This was a phenomenal read! I was encouraged, challenged, and drew closer to God's presence through this read. As a growing woman in ministry and a mom of two small kids and a wife of a minister who is growing to be a pastor one day, this is a crucial novel to keep in my spirit as I grow. Thank you for this book!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Sacred Privilege?

Make a list of everything positive you find in ministry. Review it on days you want to quit.

Have you listened to any of Kay Warren’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

no

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I felt deeply encouraged. My babies drain me, so it was so great to hear the encouragement.

Any additional comments?

Keep writing Kay!
