Ask a Pastor's Wife

Oh, hi there. Hello. I disappeared for a while. Let me get you up to speed.


Since my last post in April, some things have changed:
Todd was appointed to a new church.
Ava turned 9.
I attended and presented at UMW Assembly in Columbus, Ohio.
Maddie finished 7th grade, Ava finished 4th, and Harper completed 3 year-old preschool.
Maddie turned 13.
Maddie traveled to Seattle with my parents.
We moved to southern Illinois.
Ava went to camp.
I moved to full-time at Faith in Place doing outreach in southern Illinois. 
Harper spent a week by herself in Michigan with my parents. 
We got a kitten.
I traveled to Minnesota on behalf of UMW for the Creation Care Summit for the United Methodist Church.

So, nothing big. How was your summer?

I'm at a loss for what to write these days, so I thought I'd crowdsource my next post. Let's do Ask a Pastor's Wife!
Submit your questions in the comments below or by commenting on Facebook or Twitter. I'll answer your questions in a new post next week.

Can't wait to see what you come up with...


  1. Oh.My.Goodness! I was at UMW Assembly in Columbus! What did you present? I was in a music workshop, then the Mutuality in Mission one! How neat it would have been to see you there! Our daughter who is a minister's wife was with me! Your Instagram posts are great! Some of them would be good for blogging, perhaps, though you have a unique opportunity to keep us up to date on the latest regarding Creation Care. Reading recommendations, etc.

  2. Here are a few questions—
    How do you handle expectations of your church for the pastor’s wife?
    Do you find that churches have expectations of your children? If so, how do you handle that as a family?
    I grew up a preacher’s kid & remember my mom telling me I had to set a good example for the other kids at church.

  3. Kristina,

    How well is your Faith in Place outreach doing down there in southern IL? Are any in your congregation cognizant of the sorry state of our planet and how our diets and life styles contribute to people losing their island homes and worse?
