YOU CAN STILL WEAR CUTE SHOES is a book to help women who’s husbands are planning on going into the ministry. Or, perhaps he’s already in it, and you just aren’t sure what your duties are when you are married to the pastor. Suddenly, you’re living in the fishbowl and struggling to survive.

Lisa McKay is a pastor’s wife and in honest terms described how she and her husband were close to divorce when he started going to church. He found the Lord and was called into the ministry, and she tried to copy a stern-faced old lady by dressing in old-person clothes, taming her hair and baking casseroles for everyone.

Most of us weren’t that extreme when our spouse announced his call to the ministry. But we all were a little lost. Are the churches going to get a “Two for the price of one” couple, or will she be able to stay home and raise her children while supporting her husband?

In a witty manner, you will be able to relate to Lisa McKay as she shares the challenges of a life lived before a congregation. She’ll walk you through finding friends to coping with criticism, to saying good-bye to a church family and starting over again.

YOU CAN STILL WEAR CUTE SHOES is a must read for every woman who is doing the ministry wife “thing.” If your husband is a pastor, or is in school to become a pastor, then YOU CAN STILL WEAR CUTE SHOES is a book you must read. $12.99. 208 pages.

Author’s Bio: Lisa McKay and her husband, Luke, serve at a thriving church in Alabama. Together they are happily – if not always properly—raising three rowdy boys and one dramatic girl. In addition to being a wife and mom, Lisa is also a popular conference speaker. Visit Lisa online at
