Front Row Seat: Walking with God

More Videos

As wives of pastors, how do we walk through a spiritually dry season yet still pour into the people God has placed in our lives? What do we do when we forget we’re first and foremost daughters of God before we’re pastor’s wives? And where can we go to find refreshment and joy when we become spiritually tired and in need of hope?

In this first episode of Front Row Seat, hosts Kristen Wetherell and Kari Olson talk with Joanna Kubiak about how to prioritize our own spiritual health and walk closely with God as we minister to our local church and run the race set before us.
