How to Choose a Church :: More Confessions from a Pastor’s Wife

I'm pretty sure I love Jesus more than ever before but His kids are driving me crazy.   I can't keep binge watching Gilmore Girls and eating popcorn to escape so I thought I might have an honest conversation with you today.

Confessions of a Pastor’s Wife … The Church and the House Cat

  I have a running joke that goes around in my head that I might as well have been born on the front pew of my home church.  I wasn't, of course, but as a child born into a pastor's family, it seemed like a likely scenario.  Church became home.  It was all I really… Continue reading Confessions of a Pastor’s Wife … The Church and the House Cat
