Recently I have been making my way through this book, 25 Surprising Marriages by William J Peterson. The book showcases the marriages of 25 famous Christian couples such as Billy and Ruth Graham (world renown evangelist), William and Catherine Booth (founders of the Salvation Army), Hudson and Maria Taylor (considered the father of the modern missions movement) and so many more.
I have so enjoyed reading about the ways these couples truly loved and supported one another. One of the most interesting similarities is how the women completely embraced their husband's ministry as their own. Everything they did, they operated as a team. Each in their own unique way, but always as a team.
I think this book should be a requirement for any woman married to a man in the ministry. It is inspiring and encouraging. I recently bought a copy for all of the wives of our lead staff. When we get together this month, we will all discuss the chapter on Charles and Susannah Spurgeon.
Ok, so I am giving one away. Next Tuesday I will do a random drawing to select a winner. If you would like to have your name entered in the drawing, leave your name and email address as a comment on this post. Good luck!
