Summary "To belong helps me to believe. We are all messy and miraculous, at the same time. Church scrapes us up against each other. It skins our knees. It wounds and then it heals. We are supposed to love each other all the time, and I don't think it ever stops being hard. We are people with ragged edges. And because we are in community with each other, pointed in the same general direction toward God, gathering, worshiping, praying, and eating at all those carb-filled potlucks, we help each other grow. Candid, funny, and tender, The Minister's Wife is a memoir in essays that transports you into one woman's life while inspiring you to think differently about your own. As Karen Stiller shares her own deep-from-the-heart experiences as a minister's wife-with forgiveness, marriage, parenting, doubt, loneliness, and much more-she welcomes us all to join her on a rich, difficult, yet ultimately grace-filled spiritual adventure"-- Provided by publisher.
