"Celebrating You...The Excellent Wife"

A good woman is hard to find, and worth far more than diamonds. Her husband trusts her without reserve, and never has reason to regret it. Never spiteful, she treats him generously all her life long.
- Proverbs 31:10-12 (The Message)


Welcome to the Ministry to Pastors' Wives' of SC!

I am Melanie Ratcliffe, the Pastor's Wife Consultant, and I am so blessed to be able to serve our Pastors' Wives and believe God has wonderful things planned. My favorite part of ministry is celebrating those priceless moments where God shows up and does miraculous things in us and through us, despite us!

This ministry is designed to encourage and challenge our pastors' wives to be healthy spiritually, emotionally, and physically in order to effectively love and support their husbands and the church. The role of the Pastor's wife is often overlooked and unappreciated which can cause the wife to feel emotionally depleted, physically neglected, and spiritually weakened.   We want to give her the resources and opportunities to focus on these areas so that she can feel rejuvenated and shine as a testimony of God's faithfulness.

If you are a Pastor's Wife, I would love to meet you!

Come join me at the upcoming Pastors' Wives' Event.  This fun & fabulous event will give you the opportunity to meet and fellowship with other pastors' wives in your area.  We hope you will make a connection with someone at the event and be intentional in spending time together, building a bond that will create a strong support system.  Many families are transplants from different cities or states and don't have family or friends nearby.  My prayer is that God would grow our wives close together to be that support system and accountability for one another.

What to expect at this event: great food, fellowship and awesome prizes!  Register at the link provided.
