The Minister's Wife : A Memoir of Faith, Doubt, Friendship, Loneliness, Forgiveness, and More
by Karen Stiller




Overview -
She never expected to be a minister's wife. And the life she discovered was more challenging--and more beautiful--than she could have anticipated.
We all wrestle with tough questions about life and faith, and Karen Stiller has learned that answers don't come any easier when you're married to the minister. What does it mean to live faithfully in our complicated world? Is there a place here for me--the real me? What does everyone expect of me, and what if I fail? In The Minister's Wife, Karen shines a light on the rhythms and tough realities of the spiritual life for each and every one of us. She explores how community helps us grow; the unexpected beauty of doubt; the messy pain of families and funerals; how church can hurt and heal; and the beauty of showing up when sometimes it is more appealing to go to a coffee shop on a Sunday morning (even when you're the pastor's wife).

Warm, witty, and achingly honest, The Minister's Wife is a memoir in essays on choosing to belong, and an invitation to join a spiritual adventure.
