You Know You Are A Pastor's Wife When...

Ok, I think being the Pastor's wife requires having a sense of humor! If you are not a Pastor's wife, and are a member of a local church, encourage your Pastor's wife to checkout this blog and add her thoughts! They may seem silly, but the funny part is they are so true! (smile and laugh out loud if you want to) I did and I still do! God Bless!

Here are a few that I like . . . . .

You know you’re a pastor’s wife when…you are rarely referred to by your given name. You are most often “The Pastor’s Wife” or a variation on that theme (“Pastor ______’s Wife,” “Married to the Pastor,” etc.). You may even be called “The First Lady”. My husband even has a friend that calls me, "Mrs. Brian". It's all good though!

You know you're a pastor's wife when people say, “I know you’re married to _______, but what is your name again?

You know you’re a pastor’s wife when…you wish you had a dime for every time someone claims your husband said something that he never said. If you did, you would be a very, very rich woman.

You know you’re a pastor’s wife when you are expected to meet up to each persons’ list of expectations… perfectly… all the time.

You know you're a pastor's wife when everyone else lets you know that they know your job better than you do and they proceed to “set you straight”.

You know you’re a pastor’s wife when people tell you what you should and should not wear. (Does anyone have the dress manual? If so, can I borrow it?)

You know you're the pastor's wife when you are expected to have a hat to match every outfit.

You know your a pastor's wife when…introduced to a new parishioner in the church as the pastor's wife, and they respond with “Well, you sure don’t look like a pastor's wife.”

Ok, Pastor's wives, do you have any more that can be added?

Hello my name is Felica Raines Thompson and Thank you for joining the conversation on my “Free To Be Me” Blog. I’m a Pastor’s wife and mother of two. I am starting this blog, not only to continue the free to be me conversation that began as a radio show, but also to share and gain insight from so many others who were unable to join the conversation by radio.

In a world where not only Pastor’s wives, but women in general, are criticized if they are being heard and not just seen.  This blog’s purpose is to give a voice to those who just want to be free!  Free to think your own thoughts, free to have your own style, free to express yourself and free to just BE!  Whether you are a woman or man, I believe that the conversations that we will have will encourage, challenge and convict us all to living a FREE life. John 3:36 tells us that he who the son sets free is free indeed.

    You know you are a pastor's wife when everyone has a message that they want you to give to the pastor for them.

    and.....

    You know you are a pastor's wife when someone suggests that you should inform your daughter that pant suits are not suitable for church.

    and......

    You know that you are a pastor's wife when someone hands you a list of stores that have beautiful church hats and a collection of catalogs with church wear "that would look so nice on you."

    You know you are a Pastor's wife when you find yourself calling your husband "Pastor" with family, in the mall, grocery store, etc... because you're so used to doing it around all your members.

    You know you're a pastor's wife when you're automatically expected to be able to sing or play the piano.

    Or..........

    You know you're a pastor's wife when it's normal for other people's children to misbehave on occassion, but your's must always be a picture of perfection :-)

    And.........

    You know you're a Pastor's wife when you're not "allowed" to have your knees exposed or your arms out.
