I was a pastor’s wife, a mom of 3 – and had suicidal thoughts

 

I was a pastor’s wife, a mom of 3 – and had suicidal thoughts.

As a pastor’s wife and young mother with three children under three, there were many demands on my life. Overtime, I began to get very discouraged. My husband was working late hours and I felt like I was doing too much myself. I felt hopeless and helpless.

I shared with my husband about what I was feeling and about the frustrations I was had, but he was not as compassionate as I had hoped. He told me that I needed to deal with my problems because he did not want anyone in the church think that his family did not “have it together.” It grew to the point of suicidal thoughts and believing that my husband and children would be better with someone else.

After some counseling, I found that my identity had been misguided was solely in being pregnant and being mom. I now know that God created me for a purpose and my identity is in Christ.
