Heather Tinker, a minister's wife for more than 20 years outlines the expectations that people have of the minister and his wife, both realistic and totally over the top. She offers practical advice about how to help people lower their unrealistic expectations and some words of wisdom to minister's wives who feel they have impossible demands placed on their shoulders.
