Ask a Pastor's Wife




One of the benefits of being the wife of an itinerant United Methodist pastor is getting to meet new people everywhere I go. Seriously, everywhere: grocery stores, outlet malls, coffee shops, rest stops (yes, really). My husband and I strike up conversations or respond to others' questions literally anywhere. 


Though we might not always agree with every facet of the United Methodist Church, it's like our family--bruised and a little banged up, sometimes guilty of doing harm and squabbling with our siblings, but above all working to keep love at its center. 

I especially love meeting folks who don't go to church or who have been hurt by church. I've been told that I'm not a "typical" pastor's wife (whatever that means), which sometimes makes space for open and honest conversations. And as I've written before, my super power is people telling me things. 

So, here's your chance. Any burning questions you want to ask a pastor's wife?  I'm not shy, but keep'em clean and appropriate, please.

Post your questions in the comments and I'll respond to them next week. My family and I will be at the Annual Conference of the Illinois Great Rivers Conference next week, so your questions will give me something to think about while I sit through hours of legislation and debate over church business.
