God also send us you.

And we say thanks for all you do
and lift you up in prayer.

    I can’t decide between getting her a pillowcase or a pet.

    • Laura

      You could combine the idea and get her a pillow pet.

  • Ellen

    These folks are leaving money on the table by not have a gift suggestion list for the Pastor’s husband!

    About 17 years ago I got invited to our denomination’s regional pastor and spouse retreat. I had just moved to Iowa from California. Other states I had lived in used this title, but Iowa referred to it simply as “Preacher’s retreat.” I was not a pastor, but asked to come as a counselor to make myself available. I will never forget one meeting of the pastors (all men, as the women were meeting with the district superintendent’s wife regarding house keeping – seriously). At the end there was a fervent prayer time and the pastor praying said loudly, “And, Lord… bless our parsonage queens.” I wanted to burst out laughing. It was almost uncontrollable. I had a similar urge while reading this.

    I’ve always wanted a personalized casserole dish. But, then, I have exquisite taste.

    Hey, I’m interested in exquisite things! Exquisite grammar, for one. Exquisite wit, exquisite ideas… And #25 has potential – a gift certificate for a restaurant with an offer of babysitting would go along way with this pastor’s wife. Otherwise, for me, you would just have to make a few minor tweaks: reinterpret “throw pillow” as “laptop cooling pad,” substitute “sentiments vase” with “single malt whiskey glasses”, and make sure the book is Richard Muller’s The Unaccommodated Calvin so I can stop checking it out of the library. That should do it.

    But if you gave me a plaque with that poem on it, you’d better make sure it’s not breakable. Recognition is wonderful, but there is little that is more uncomfortable or painful than being recognized for the wrong things. It isn’t easy being married to a pastor (regardless of whether spouse and/or pastor are male or female), and there’s a part of me that appreciates the effort, however lame. But one of the reasons it isn’t easy is pretty much exemplified by everything this misguided guide represents.

    In any case, good choice on the throw pillow, Tony. That shouldn’t hurt too much.

    If I bought my wife a pillowcase she would smother me with it in my sleep.

  • Who ARE these people?
    Aren’t Christians supposed to always give their very best, so as to represent and honor God? Grammar, people!

    Well, at least they have “compact mirror” on the list. A must have for a preacher’s wife. Must always be looking your best.

  • Carla

    Okay, if you’re getting her the throw pillow, I’ll get her the oil lamp. Or a pet.

  • Steve Swope

    Oh, geez, Tony. You’d better be posting this tongue-in-cheek, ’cause it’s way too cheesy. Throw pillows? Sentiments vase? Pets????? Yeesh.

  • What if your pastor is a Lesbian? What do you get her wife?

  • Steve Swope

    And what if your pastor is a married hetero-female? Who remembers the pastor’s husband? This is just so sad, in so many ways.

  • Matt

    Helen Lovejoy would be so proud to receive any of these gifts.
