About the Book

The author reflects on her thirty years as a pastor in various settings, both as a settled pastor and as Interim Pastor. She writes of her early life and her sense of Call at the age of thirteen yet unable to answer that Call for almost 30 years. The struggles of being a woman in a male dominated ecclesiastical world and other challenges which the author has overcome makes for fun but serious reflections.
