"To belong helps me to believe. We are all messy and miraculous, at the same time. Church scrapes us up against each other. It skins our knees. It wounds and then it heals. We are supposed to love each other all the time, and I don't think it ever stops being hard. We are people with ragged edges. And because we are in community with each other, pointed in the same general direction toward God, gathering, worshiping, praying, and eating at all those carb-filled potlucks, we help each other grow. Candid, funny, and tender, The Minister's Wife is a memoir in essays that transports you into one woman's life while inspiring you to think differently about your own. As Karen Stiller shares her own deep-from-the-heart experiences as a minister's wife-with forgiveness, marriage, parenting, doubt, loneliness, and much more-she welcomes us all to join her on a rich, difficult, yet ultimately grace-filled spiritual adventure"--
This wise, pithy and godly advice, given with grace and humility by pastors' wives for other pastors' wives, is also applicable to all married Christian women, both young and older. Faith Cook, author and speaker What an honest, ...

Philadelphia, 1777, during the American Revolution. Abigail St. Clair knows many secrets, and the damage done if those secrets are revealed. She arrives in Philadelphia during the British occupation with her new husband, a minister for the Anglican Church, knowing she'll soon confront her former lover. Betrayal wears many faces and impacts more than most could know. When Abigail sinks in scandal not of her own making, fighting wrongs that may never be righted, she steps onto a dangerous precipice, living two very different lives: a devoted minister’s wife, loyal to the Crown, and a colonial spy, tied to a man she loves more than most could imagine. An awakening draped in fast-paced drama, The Minister’s Wife defines a woman who betrays country, family, and friends to serve a higher purpose, defying a ruthless enemy, ripping wrong from right and exposing sordid secrets. On a subtler level, it explores the human psyche - love, ambition, trust and guilt - as friends and foes change places, and love emerges to conquer all.
