Praise for A Life Embraced

“Glancing back through the 54 years that Bill and I served together in ministry, I recognize that the support role I held was both challenging and rewarding. Gayle's tempered voice of experience reminds us that God values a wife's ministry of everyday, routine responsibilities as much as he values a pastor's ministry.  We are not alone in the journey, nor are we ill-equipped if we lean on our Lord in every aspect of life.  A Life Embraced reminds us that being a wife alongside a husband in ministry is a rewarding privilege.”
–Vonette Bright, co-founder,
Campus Crusade for Christ, International

“I was thrilled to read this practical book that gives insight as it relates to accepting the call God predestined for us in the midst of the realities of life and ministry. A Life Embraced reminds us of the fact that he who began a good work in us is faithful to complete his work in and through us. For every pastor's wife and those aspiring to be, this is a must read.”
–Lois Evans, DHL, Senior Vice President, The Urban Alternative and President, Global Pastors' Wives Network

“I would encourage any pastor's wife to read A Life Embraced. Not only does it give sound advice regarding home, relationships, and family, but it touches a great deal on the partnership of marriage and how important that is for a healthy, successful ministry. This book is an easy, worthwhile, and very informative read.”
–Anna M. Hayford, wife of
Pastor Jack W. Hayford

“A Life Embraced
is more than a guide; it's a breath of hope to every weary woman who wonders if she has what she needs to make it! Gayle's transparent style is disarming as she shares time honored truth and the assurance the Father not only sees you, but desires to meet your deepest longings as you labor in his field. Prepare to be strengthened and encouraged!” 
–Lisa Bevere, speaker and bestselling author of Kissed the Girls and Made Them Cry and Out of Control & Loving It!

“Sixty-five years ago, when my husband and I began in ministry, there were few manuals and “how-to” books available. In my own experience, I have seen that the demands of a pastor's wife can be overwhelming unless she has been given solid Biblical ways to deal with these challenges.

I am so pleased to learn that Gayle Haggard has recognized this tremendous need and is meeting it. I believe this book will be a blessing--not only to pastors' wives, but also to wives of Christian school administrators, evangelists' wives, wives of youth pastors and so on. While being a Godly helpmate is never easy, it is well worth the effort. At our husband's side, we have a tremendous opportunity to change the world for God's glory.”
–Evelyn Roberts, wife of Evangelist Oral Roberts and author of His Darling Wife, Evelyn and Evelyn Roberts' Miracle Life Stories

“During an age in which pastors' wives feel overworked, misunderstood, and alone, Gayle Haggard lovingly embraces and encourages each one. With warmth and wisdom, Gayle shares honestly from her own life and from God's Word. Grab this book and devour it over and over. You'll find fresh truth with each reading.” 
–Lorraine Pintus, conference speaker, author of Diapers Pacifiers and Other Holy Things, and co-author of Intimate Issues and Gift-wrapped by God.
 
“Gayle Haggard is one of the most gracious women I know. In A Life Embraced, she marries grace and truth giving deep wisdom concerning every area of a wife's life. I highly recommend this book to every woman whose husband is a leader.”
–Linda Dillow, mission leader's wife, author of Calm My Anxious Heart, and co-author of Intimate Issues and Gift-wrapped by God
