Is there a new pastor at your church? Find out how you can best communicate care and acceptance to the new pastor's wife. We asked several pastors' wives to share what has been the most helpful and the most hurtful. Your caring and sensitive response and thoughtful actions may make a difference in her experience of connecting to others and staying long-term.
Every month a mover's story is featured at JustMoved.org. Send us your story and encourage your study group members to send in the story - the highs and lows, the evidence of God's work, the "ah ha" moments - of their experience of being uprooted from familiarity to be transplanted in a new community. Send stories to Ann Kelley, email@example.com.
