Imagine my surprise when I clicked over to Leading and Loving It last week to see that our fearless leader, Lori, had volunteered us all for an Open Q & A! And by volunteered I mean she posted we’d all 6 do an Open Q & A without asking first! 🙂 Luckily, we’re all so laid back, easy going, and love her dearly that we quickly jumped on her bandwagon. So, here’s the first of a series of Q & A from the entire Leading and Loving It team.
Actually you’ll see answers from 5 of us, everyone but Donna… who’s on a mission trip in Belize. Yes, she sacrificing for Jesus in Belize! I think I’m feeling called to sacrifice with her next spring break… anyone else?
Q: What is greatest fear of being the “lead” pastors wife and what is the greatest joy? Advice to me whose husband is planting a church in the next months! (@karaprater)
Lori: My worst fear has always been that I would do or say something that would compromise Jud’s ability to lead or minister to people. My greatest joy and the reason why we do ministry is life change. I love to see God completely transform someone’s life by His wonderful grace.
Brandi: My greatest fear has probably always been not being enough. It’s taken a while for me to realize that God wants use “Me” and not just my husband in ministry. Greatest joy has always been and will always be having a front seat to the life change that can only occur through Jesus Christ.
Jessica: My greatest fear to not have the Lord’s blessing, presence, or power over our life and ministry.My greatest joy being a part of something larger than myself!!! Having such a huge purpose and calling on my life!
Tiffany: My greatest fear is becoming isolated. My greatest joy is seeing life change first hand. It’s the best seat in the house.
Lisa: I probably fear I am not doing it well enough or right enough. I am figuring out that I need to be who God designed me to be. I think people crave authenticity. I just so respect how my husband leads, I never want to do anything that would make him look bad. The great joy for me is changed lives! We get the privilege of seeing lives drastically changed every weekend … it is my addiction!
