Leading and Loving It is a community that connects, encourages, and supports pastors’ wives and women in ministry.
“I think the “typical Pastor’s Wife” is dead. You know, that woman who had it all together, never seemed to struggle, played the piano, attended every event, and met everyone’s expectations … although she could have had some help with her wardrobe.
We spend mass amounts of time, energy, emotion, and effort comparing ourselves to a myth. And the problem is … I fall short. My attention turns to my shortcomings and failings instead of staying focused on God and who He created me to be.
But the truth is, God knew exactly what He was doing … exactly who He was calling. He knows my shortcomings and my struggles, and He has extended His call to leadership and ministry anyway.”
-Lori Wilhite (Founder of Leading and Loving It)
Next week I am hosting an event for Orange County pastors’ wives and women in ministry. We would love to see you there! Leading and Loving It is cheering on women in ministry everywhere. They want to see us succeed in our ministries, our marriages, family life, and spiritual growth. I believe in the power of community. I’ve seen what happens when people realize they have things in common. We are better together. I think as women we have unique stories to share, struggles to overcome, leadership skills that can help shape the future of the Church, and great potential to change the world.
Let’s do it together.
It’ll be a night filled with fun, laughter, and some sweet treats while giving you the chance to connect with other women in the area.
Here are the details:
Date: Friday, November 4.
Time: 7:00-9:00 p.m.
Location: We’ll be gathering at a good friend’s house in Lake Forest, CA. She is a pastor’s wife and a seasoned leader with tons of ministry experience. Just leave a comment to let me know you’re interested in attending and I’ll email you her address.
RSVP: Leave a comment on this post including your email address and I’ll email you back with the location and address. You can also follow me on twitter—I’ll follow you back! Just direct message me, and I’ll DM you the details.
Forward this post to other women in ministry or pastors’ wives that you know here in Orange County!
I’m looking forward to seeing you!
