Oh my goodness, my dear friend and Pastor's wife, Michelle and I got to go see Kay Warren! (Thanks to Joy, Kay's wonderful assistant who invited us to come). Kay is the wife of Pastor Rick Warren from Saddleback. She was in Columbus, Ohio where she taught a session at a Youth Conference and later sat down with pastor's wives.
What a privilege it was to sit in a room with only about 25 other people and ask questions and receive encouragement. Kay is an amazing woman who has been through tremendously tough times. She is a breast cancer survivor and has just had a second knee replacement. Despite her discomfort she came and ministered to us! Kay has an unbelievable love for her Lord as well as for the local church.
When the session ended we got to talk to Kay one on one. She may never know how much that meant to us! She could have been speaking to any group anywhere she chose, but she chose to care for pastor's wives. What a blessing.
God chooses just a few that can serve with great success and remain authentic. Kay is one of the few. She is an extraordinary communicator who speaks straight from her heart to others. Amazing! I would have never dreamed that I would get the opportunity to meet such a great Godly leader. God is so good!
