In this insightful article, Laurie Carnright Edwards reflects on the “unexpected blessings” of her role as a pastor’s wife — a role she once swore she’d never have. After 30 years of marriage to a pastor, she’s learned that “a pastor’s spouse is neither clergy nor laity,” and requires tremendous strength and flexibility. “As a pastor’s spouse, you are being watched. Like it or not. The key is to keep on living your life, not like the church or the community is watching, but like God is watching you. Because ultimately he is the one who matters most.”
