6YearMed on what parents do for their sick children. “While she’s still here, he sets his alarm every two hours to reposition her in the bed, provides her medications through a feeding tube and diligently records the hundreds of seizures, each of which rock the bed and break his heart. And those on the outside wonder why, and how? We want it to be over because it seems to hard—so time consuming and fruitless.”


10 Questions for Pastors’ Wives
Titus2Talk is talking to pastors’ wives. “The aim of this is to inspire and encourage women who are married to a pastor or to a seminary student. Also we want to give other women an insight into the challenges that pastors’ wives face so we can better encourage and pray for those in leadership.”
