    Seasons of a Woman’s Life

    Monday, February 27, 2023

    Who doesn’t like the time when seasons change? Even subtle changes in seasons bring new life, new adventure, new experiences. Warm and breezy to crisp and cold. Hot and muggy to cool and clear. Icy and frigid to new life blooming in colors all around.

    So, it is in life. Seasons come and go. Seasons change. Bringing new adventure, experiences, and challenges.

    Lois Evans, in her book “Seasons of a Woman’s Life” sheds light on the ever-changing spiritual season changes in a woman’s life. Times of seed planting, times of waiting, times of harvesting and times of reemerging in the newness of yet another season.

    Lois Evans parted this physical world on December 30, 2019. Her season changes on this earth were complete. We can learn from the words she wrote before her parting telling of the seasons we share in together.

    Lois writes in her introduction to the book: “And whenever I talk to women, I hear the same question asked in many different ways. Whatever their age, whatever their responsibilities, women want to know, “Will it always be like this?”

    Her answer starts with: “Women are seasonal creatures, and when we look at our lives in light of the season we are in, we are better able to cope with some of the challenges and are more likely to appreciate the blessings- while we still have them.”

    So, carve out some time, grab a cup of tea or coffee and settle in to read how Lois speaks into the seasons of our lives. Seasons of Change.

    We are here to walk with you on the ministry journey as a pastor’s wife!

    Help us continue providing resources of care for pastors and their families.
