Summary

In describing the qualities of a church deacon, the Bible also emphasizes the traits of his companion: "Wives, too, must be worthy of respect, not slanderers, self-controlled, faithful in everything" (1 Timothy 3:11). Yet for all the traditional deacon handbooks, less prevalent are those for a deacon's wife. This warmhearted, conversational new book from "Fresh Ideas" syndicated columnist Diana Davis shares stories and insights for deacon wives whether just inaugurated or long experienced. The reader will enjoy tips on how to best encourage her husband's work, the ministry of the pastor and his wife, and other church staff and members. There are also helpful home and family suggestions, self-evaluation forms and checklists, and even a detailed teaching plan to share this wealth of material with other women in the church
