Read the Foreword and Prologue

Esteemed first lady of AME Bishop John Bryant and an honored pastor in her own right, Rev. Dr. Cecelia Williams Bryant has compiled a collection of letters that mentor other first ladies of the church, letters rich in comfort, encouragement, and challenge. Written in the tradition of Paul's pastoral epistles and crafted by Rev. C's own poetic voice, each chapter addresses a woman who is wrestling with a particular issue common to first ladies, including:

  • Church conflict
  • Financial stress
  • Self-esteem
  • Discouragement
  • Death of a pastoral spouse

One letter even offers advice to the woman whose husband is the "pastor's spouse."

An inspirational resource that offers self-help with spiritual depth and honest practicality!

Editorial Reviews:

"A wonderful resource for pastors' wives. Mrs. Bryant's spiritual maturity and love for her husband and their ministry is evident in every line of her book. With each chapter/subject she provides spiritual exercises we can follow to help get our hearts and minds centered on God and His grace and healing. I look forward to rereading and following some or all of the spiritual disciplines she outlines." —
