Being a pastor’s wife isn’t for the faint of heart. Not only do you have to deal with all the stress of ministry, supporting your spouse in a very demanding career, and making sure your children don’t cause the children’s minister to quit, somewhere in there you are expected to stay Christian. It’s enough to induce a panic attack in even the most resolute of women.
If you have the good fortune of being a pastor’s wife, we’ve tried to make your job and life a little more bearable by sharing some memes you can use to communicate those feelings you would never say out loud. So the next time someone asks you why you look so tired, no need to bite your tongue, count to 10, or say a prayer for miraculous self-control. Just respond with an uncannily appropriate meme. Enjoy!

#5 Oh good. I found a way to sleep standing up. This will save time.
#6 I’ve totally got this. Nobody panic!
#7 Sure…let me drop everything to make coffee. No problem.
#8 Hey, not everyone’s great with kids…
#9 I just want to see my husband again. Is that so much to ask?
#10 Then again…If I were, maybe I’d see him more often?
#11 This is actually a life skill EVERYONE in ministry needs to know.
#12 As odd as it sounds, I have my own name.
#13 Count to 10! Deep cleansing breaths!
#14 It’s so hard to keep a straight face sometimes…
