It's My Job To Seduce The Pastor (Marriage Advice From Pastor's Wives)

The title below caught my attention a few months ago - I thought the advice of these pastor's wives was refreshingly original for clergy couples. It does has quite a feminine (perhaps slightly old fashioned) twist but if you read it with a bit of humour the advice is quite practical and playful - and goes both ways. :) What do you think?

The Magic Begins At 281 (Study Update)

After many hours of sifting through electronic and paper study responses, I'm excited to announce that a whopping 281 people shared their story in our clergy family study. Considering that our goal was 100 participants to maintain anonymity and give a reasonably broad insight into clergy life, we are absolutely thrilled and honoured!

But I Don't Want To Go (PK Guest Writer)

Everyone's story counts. I'm honoured to share with you this story from an Australian PK about being part of a clergy family. Our prayer is that over time we're able to share more stories from clergy families and encourage others that they aren't alone...

"We moved around way more than I wanted to. I've lived in the city, country and everywhere in-between, and each move was usually decided by my parent in ministry or their boss. Each church had its own quirks and definitely some great times, but they all had one thing in common - an intense curiousity to know all the little details of our lives. We didn't want to share our test results, or who we were dating or how big a fight we had over who got the last piece of chocolate cake. We wanted privacy but couldn't find it.
