You Are Not Forgotten

Feeling overlooked? Disregarded? Alone or misunderstood?


I've been there.


And what I learned in the barren wilderness is just what Hagar learned in her own desert: there is a God, and He not only sees you right where you are but is actively working to care for and deliver you.

Ministry Wives Podcast by Christine Hoover and NAMB, a podcast for pastor's wives

Being a ministry wife is a vocation without a job description… and let’s be honest — sometimes it seems like ministry might be easier if we did have one. If you are a ministry wife like me and are looking for hope, perspective, and a little bit of practical advice regarding your role, you’re in the right place. I’m Christine Hoover… welcome to The Ministry Wives Podcast, a production of the North American Mission Board. Join me as we hear from women in various ministry contexts for authentic conversations about our shared joys and challenges – even the ones we’re unsure we can talk about. No topic is off-limits. Let’s dive in.
