Interview With a Small Town Pastor’s Wife: Joanna Weaver

About a decade ago, I read a book that encouraged and grounded me as a new church-planting Pastor’s wife serving in an isolated context. The book was Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World by best-selling author and pastor’s wife, Joanna Weaver. More recently, I felt led to send her an email thanking her for her writing ministry and sharing some of my calling as a small-town PW and the vision of Flowers for the Pastor’s Wife. A personal reply came back along with, ‘Let’s talk together sometime by phone.’ Wow! The Lord’s timing was perfect to not only chat by phone, but for me to interview her for the Flowers Blog. I’m so excited to share her story with all of you! I see Joanna as a Spirit-filled lady who emulates our first two themes on the Flowers blog- desiring to be Pastor’s Wives who serve our great God with LOVE and JOY. I pray you are as blessed as I was getting to know Joanna better through this phone interview.
