Today, I wanted to revisit this post because of Kelly’s blog. Part of being a wife of someone in ministry is the adventure of staying home alone while they go away for a week to take a seminary class.

“No pillow talk for a week!” This is the first thought that crosses my mind when Mark tells me about a class he has to take at Southern Seminary.

  1. Hi I just jumped over from Kelly’s link up. I love your blog, so fun! I read tou about me I am from TN, I now live in Venice beach California where my husband is a church planter. I could not believe it when I read you have a glory baby. My sixth child Jonathan was stillborn 1-24-12. I started blogging to cope with my emotions and connect with other baby loss moms. Ministry can be lonely ministry and grief can be agony. It is a lonely road I am so happy to read about other mom’s that have walked this path and have come out for the better! I will definitely jump over and vote for you…the fact that you are a BLM and are entered speaks volumes.
