The Book

Your Pastor’s Wife Needs Your Prayers

“Lady Brooker presents a cut-to-the-chase perspective on the issues that pastors’ wives endure. Her table of contents alone is enough to draw you in. The topics are real, intense, and—without prayer—can be destructive. While this work certainly gives voice to the deep issues pastors’ wives often face, this book is not just for pastors’ wives—indeed, it is for those who criticize and critique first ladies. If taken seriously and read with an open heart and mind, then more people would certainly pray for the pastor’s wife because she needs our prayers”

 “Your Pastor’s Wife Needs Your Prayers is an insightful guide into the private life of a pastor’s wife from the prospective of a pastor’s wife. This book draws you into understanding the joy and burdens of those women who are called pastor’s wives in the twenty-first century and who share the responsibilities of ministry. This is a must-read for everyone!”

Rev. Dr. Ronald L. Owens
Senior pastor of the New Hope Baptist Church of Metuchen, New Jersey
Board Member of the National Baptist Convention, USA Inc.

“Your Pastor’s Wife Needs Your Prayers is a precise and profound book that addresses the needs, support, and concern of the minister’s wife in the twenty-first century. Realizing situations or circumstances are sometimes different. This book shows how much that common thread of being the pastor’s wife is the same. How do we juggle and balance our lives as pastors’ wives? It’s simply through faith, love, and prayer. With these three, the greatest is prayer”

Dr. Beverly Williams Glover
President, International Association of Ministers’ Wives and Ministers’ Widows, Inc.

“What a wonderful insight into a unique group of women. Informative, inspirational, and motivational, Your Pastor’s Wife Needs Your Prayers is a book long overdue. This book transcends pastors’ wives. It provides all women with a book of prayers that is so helpful in today’s society”

“I have been privileged to be a minister’s wife for thirty-five years and a first lady for twenty years. I wish that such a publication had existed in my formative years. This book gives a concise picture of our lives. I highly recommend it to those who really have the interest of pastors’ wives at heart”
