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.
