Married, Spiritually Single, and Called to Lead

Managing tension between marriage and ministry

Yes, it’s challenging to be a married woman in leadership when your husband doesn’t share your faith. And yes, moments of discouragement and disappointment are inevitable as you maneuver the twists and turns of life. But God will use the challenges to shape your character and transform you into the image of Christ. You will be richer for the experience, and so will your marriage and ministry.

Mary J. Yerkes is a writer and spiritual director who helps church and marketplace leaders develop healthy spirituality and sustainable intimacy with God. You can learn more about Mary at www.maryyerkes.com and http://conversationsthattransform.org.
