March of 1997, while searching the Internet for something that would be
specifically for Pastors'
and Ministers' Wives in the way of chats, bulletin boards, or . . .
something, an amazing thing took place that forever changed my life and the
life of countless other ministry women and pastors' wives.
As a wife
we often fall between the cracks, have hurts and struggles and
unrealistic expectations put upon us that only another pastor's
wife could understand and other women would
never dream of! There HAD to be something 'out there' that would meet
this aching need. Alas, my search was in vain. At that time, it was almost
impossible to find anything that offered what my heart yearned for.
That was when "Sarah's Tent" was birthed.
While visiting a Christian women's chat room, I started to chat with another
pastor's wife. We had such a wonderful time laughing and sharing, we
hated to keep it to ourselves. Soon another 'pw' joined our
conversation, and then another. Before we knew it, we went from two to
twenty, and from twenty to two hundred, and from two hundred to four
hundred. The growth was incredible!
Only God could have caused
something to grow so fast and in such a wonderful way!
Sarah's Tent has had the pleasure of serving pastors' wives and ladies in the
ministry all over the United States and in other countries! By offering a
loving touch and learning to laugh at the 'uglies' we've found our own
healing and been blessed to see hope once again fill the hearts of our
sisters in ministry.
Sarah's Tent is: "A ministry devoted to
gathering together God's silent warriors, the wives of pastors and ministers of all
denominations and cultural backgrounds, as well as their families, for fellowship,
support, laughter and prayer.
