Minister’s Wife Appreciation Month
A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life. – Proverbs 31:10 -12 (NIV)
Your Pastor’s Wife is a behind-the-scenes cheerleader for your pastor, who diligently serves the church with a loving heart. She doesn’t expect praise, but a kind word or sweet gesture will make her day. Take the time to show love for your staff’s wives.
Here are a few ideas:
Plan A Special Celebration
This could be as simple or elaborate as you would like. Coffee and treats before morning services would mean so much. Perhaps you could even include a few of her favorites!
Give A Thoughtful Gift
A journal with a personal note inside, a special book, or a bouquet of flowers. All of these things would show your appreciation without breaking the bank!
Collect Letters of Appreciation from the Congregation
Have each family, or each member, write a brief note to your pastor’s wife. They could include fond memories, prayers and words of encouragement.
Send Your Pastor and His Wife on a Getaway
Collect funds from willing donors of the congregation to give the pastor and his wife a getaway. Consider a “staycation” at a local spa or bed and breakfast in your town.
Does your Pastor’s wife know how much you appreciate her? Tell her today! A pastor’s wife who is well loved, loves well in return.
