Yours is a role unlike any other
Kay Warren, cofounder of Saddleback Church with her husband, Rick, shares the struggles and joys of ministry in Sacred Privilege: Your Life and Ministry As a Pastor's Wife. With deeply personal stories and wisdom gleaned from decades of experience, Kay writes to women who understand first-hand the complex dynamics inherent to any in ministry.
Kay has lived nearly every aspect of being related to the pastor! She was a pastor's daughter, a pastor's wife, has a daughter who is married to a pastor, and has a son who ministers to pastors. Because Saddleback Church began in her living room with seven people, she knows what it's like to be a part of a small, developing church as well as a large, thriving church. Sacred Privilege is not only a peek behind the curtain of one of America's best known churches, but also provides much-needed encouragement that pastors' wives all over the country desire.
In Sacred Privilege, Kay confirms that being a pastor's wife does not mean being perfect. Known for her vulnerable way of speaking and teaching, Kay goes even further as she reveals the brokenness that resulted from childhood molestation - the allure of pornography, intense marital conflict and temptation, as well as depression and a distorted view of her worth. Losing a child to suicide could easily have been the catalyst for giving up on God and leaving ministry, but Kay's resilient faith and confidence in God's redemptive plan for her life has kept her feet firmly planted. The road has not been easy, but she has learned much along the way and can now confidently say that being a pastor's wife is truly a "sacred privilege."

La vida como esposa de pastor brinda oportunidades significativas para desempeñar un papel relevante en la obra de Dios, presenciar y participar en la belleza de las vidas transformadas. Sin embargo, también tiene el potencial de crear heridas profundas y gran conflicto, lo que puede drenar el gozo del servicio. ¿Vale la pena eso? Sí, afirma Kay Warren, cofundadora de Saddleback Church. Claro que vale la pena arriesgarse, es un privilegio sagrado.
