The Perils of a Pastor's Wife is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and LPC Bookstore

When I read a certain page in Nan Jones’ book The Perils of a Pastor’s Wife I wept for her. She exposed her pain in a raw and real way that I can relate. Almost too well maybe, but then again, that’s what I admire most about her faith journey– the courage to push through disappointment. No matter how deep her suffering she still ran to God seeking comfort and direction, and not the usual quick-fix with answers. No, she wasn’t having an all-out tantrum, but rather humble in the grace desperately needed for herself and everyone involved. Her soul truly surrendered while gray skies loomed above, and the walls of her dark pit seemed to be closing in. Still, she looked toward Heaven for a touch, a word, a sign that’s she’s held close, and not forgotten. She needed God above all else.

And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us. Romans 5:3-5

Nan is continuing to heal, and her future bright with each day trusting God for the ordinary and the extras. Grateful she is that He has been faithful, as always, and assured that He will continue to be there for her as she carries this hope to others struggling for a new normal.

God works in mysterious ways. Nan has found comfort for her healing journey while giving when she feels there’s nothing left to give, which is the miracle from knowing Jesus intimately.

When we think we’re done, shattered and all-together a mess is when He can use us most while the ashes settle.

Nan has been diligent in keeping up with social media while building readership and promoting her book. Her ministry expanded from the beginning to include speaking events in her home state of North Carolina with resounding positive endorsements. She also inspires semi-weekly on her website under the link Blog.
