When Joline was a young girl, she dreamed of becoming a pastor's wife. Wait. That's not right. Strike that. She dreamed of becoming an Oscar and Tony award-winning actress, television performer, and weekly columnist. Then, she married a pastor. God is funny. In Confessions of a Pastor's Wife, Joline Pinto Atkins shares her opinions, discoveries, and personal misgivings about her experience as a pastor's wife of sixteen years. Taken from her blog, The Cuppa Jo, Joline's essays display a transparency that pastor's wives may not feel the freedom to share publicly. With her unique conversational style, Joline confesses her thoughts while managing to keep her faith intact, and she discovers the old adage "confession is good for the soul" to be true -- and comforting.
Since Joline wrote and narrated this herself, there is no misunderstanding of what she meant. I could relate to many of the things she talked about and some of it was encouraging. Also was helpful to understand that people in ministry are just people. Will listen again. I recommend highly.
Love these stories, and appreciate the honesty and openness with which she shares her confessions. Joline is a witty , engaging writer who keeps me interested from start to finish
