The below are really useful ideas developed by Mary Milne, a ministry wife in Sydney.
But there are lots of different things your group could do. Especially initially, you might like to discuss a suitable ministry book agreed upon by the group and pray together, or listen to some short talks specifically addressing issues that ministry wives face.
Some book suggestions:
- One With a Shepherd by Mary Somerville –see here for some extensive discussion questions written by Connie Dever (Mark Dever’s wife)
- 10 Things every Minister’s Wife needs to Know by Jeana Floyd
- The Minister’s Wife – Privilege, Pressures and Pitfalls by Anne Benton
- I’m more than the Pastor’s Wife – Authentic Living in a Fishbowl World by Lorna Dobson
