What’s New At Create With Joy?
Sacred Privilege: Your Life And Ministry As A Pastor’s Wife by Kay Warren
If you are a pastor’s wife and are looking for a book to guide you in your unique role and minister to your unique needs, I can think of no one better to counsel you than Kay Warren – wife of nationally renowned pastor Rick Warren and co-founder with him of Saddleback Church, and the author of Sacred Privilege: Your Life And Ministry As A Pastor’s Wife.
Filled with a lifetime of wisdom that comes with growing up as a pastor’s daughter and being married to one of the most influential pastors in America for more than 40 years, she shares – with authenticity, transparency and grace – issues such as accepting who you are – the challenges of raising a family in the church environment – how to take care of yourself – how to protect your privacy when you live in a fishbowl – dealing with criticism – and finishing well.
Even if you’re not a pastor’s wife, you will find Sacred Privilege insightful and invaluable, as Kay has written this book in such a way that there’s a chapter that will most likely speak to your heart. For instance, the chapter Valuing Seasons And Moments calls us to adjust our ministry schedules based on the seasons of our lives and the priorities that God is placing upon our heart.
I recommend this book for anyone who is involved in ministry (especially women who are married to pastors!)
Sacred Privilege is available through Amazon!
Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book through Revell Books. The opinions expressed here are entirely my own.

I always forget about your wonderful Book Nook (I know, I know…it’s not that hard to remember, but my brain…and the busy-ness…lol) and then I saw your email in my inbox and I had just posted about the High Summer Readathon. Voila!
Thanks, as always, for your work in our bookish community!
I was just thinking that the Summer Readathon should be coming up at any time now – so glad you posted – look forward to checking out the details – have an amazing month Michelle and be sure to post your reviews! 🙂
