"Be Still" is a ministry in the Indiana Conference for clergy spouses who need a listening ear or a word of encouragement. I am putting together an information booklet to use with the program. I wonder if there are other conferences which have a booklet or information pamphlet given to clergy spouses when his/her spouse begins ministry?

If you are interested in sharing with me and my committee I would be grateful. My email is jreed46038@hotmail.com. Thank you so much for helping.

God, we your children are mindful that we must care for each other in the way that you would. Guide the ministry that is beginning to reach out to those spouses who need your touch. Amen.

  1. Jacquie, what a great idea. Please post your information when you finish. But a word of caution about the title, "Be Still." Too many spouses think that is what they have to do. Perhaps another, more descriptive title? Perhaps something like, "Everything a Pastor's Spouse Needs to Know." Thanks for all your work

  2. Kathy - I really like your idea - I am working on some clergy spouse things, so I will let you know what I develop. I liked your story about your grandchildren - they keep our vision clear to God. Jacquie
