Title: The Leader’s Wife
Author: Debby Thompson
Publisher: Ambassador International
Release Date: May 11, 2018
Genre: Christian NonFiction, Marriage
As a woman leading a life of influence, you may find yourself without sufficient clarity or equipping for the challenges you face. For many, the role of wife of a leader is one thrust upon, rather than chosen. For others, it is a responsibility embraced but no less complicated to navigate. In either case, as one sharing a journey with a world-changer, this book is for you.
Debby Thompson has spent decades listening to the voices of tried and tested women, and her experiences have instilled a sense of urgency in her to pass on the insights she has gleaned. Within The Leader’s Wife, she addresses some of the most difficult questions facing wives of leaders. With vulnerability and candor, Debby speaks from her own mistakes and discoveries.
The Leader’s Wife offers not a job description but a GPS. It is a blueprint—without how-to’s and ought-to’s—for igniting within you what the Creator has already designed. The Biblical teaching, personal stories, and hard-won lessons Debby communicates will guide and empower you to live with eternal intentionality.
Though your husband will always have other advisors, your input for him will be unique. Seek to excel in this coveted opportunity. I believe the endeavor will serve to enhance your partnership.
Let me pause here and share a small treasure, our communication covenant. A proven asset in our marriage, I offer these life-giving statements for you to consider using in life with your leader.
Trust me; I will not belittle you to our children.
Trust me; I will not talk about you in a negative way to my friends.
Trust me; I will not embarrass you in public.
Furthermore, I acquired another invaluable communication resource through the advice of a wise young man. He once urged me, “Debby, when you are talking to wives married to men in leadership, be sure to tell them this: ‘Do not defend your husband in public; you only belittle him. Do not correct your husband in public; you only belittle yourself.’”
His advice later guided me through a painful communication debacle.
