10 Things Every Minister’s Wife Needs To Know
In ministry, survival can mean a lot of things — such as the difference between “existing” in a place and “thriving” in a place of ministry. It can mean you surviving your husband’s job joyfully, or grudgingly. One thing is for sure, your survival and the way you feel about ministry are critical to your husband’s success.

A strong marriage plays a pivotal role in the success of a ministry. Being the wife of a minister can be tremendously rewarding, but it is also a commitment of time, personal investment, and patience. Ministry is a challenging vocation, even in the best of times. Jeana Floyd knows these challenges well and has created this faith-affirming guide for pastors’ wives. Sharing years of wisdom and insight from her participation in her husband’s growing and visionary ministry, 10 Things Every Minister’s Wife Needs to Know is filled with practical tips on marriage, prayer, stewardship, parenting, and faith. With “interactive testimonies” included from other wives of pastors at the end of each chapter, the book shares poignant and powerful insights any woman or wife can appreciate.
