To the casual observer, the pastor's wife may seem relegated to the shadows, but in actuality, nothing could be farther from the truth. Pastors have complex jobs. They must write sermons and create a faith-based curriculum for parishioners. They must also pray over sick lists, visit the homebound and keep an eye on administrative duties. And when they get called to the church at an odd time or have yet another after-hours commitment, it's often the pastor's wife who keeps the home fires burning and provides much needed emotional support. Words of encouragement for pastor's wife are essential when recognizing the first lady of the church with a gift. And we've got a trove of curated material to help you come up with the perfect pastor’s wife appreciation quote for gift plaques.

Don't get frustrated if you can't settle on just one sample first lady appreciation day appreciation message. They are so many sources of inspiration; scripture, song, poetry or a quote. A sample minister's wife appreciation bible verse would look absolutely beautiful engraved on a piece of naturally reflective crystal appreciation gift. Pastor's wife appreciation poems would also be right at home there. And just in time for Mother's Day, we've hand-picked a special Mother's Day appreciation message for pastor's wife. Remember, as long as you're using something straight from the heart to get the brain-storming started, the sky really is the limit! Some examples of pastor’s wife appreciation quotes for gift plaques are listed below.

"He will not forget your work..."
Hebrews 6:10

To Our Beloved First Lady

When we thank God for our pastor,
we must give Him thanks for two.
For when your husband came to us,
God also sent us you.

Your presence blesses all of us
who know you from day to day.
As our pastor’s wife, you are serving
God in a fine and worthy way.

Congratulations on Your Fifth Year Anniversary!

Sample Pastor's Wife Appreciation Poems

With Love, Honor & Appreciation


You have stood Faithfully along the side
of the Man of God with Love, Support,
Encouragement and Faith setting
an example of true commitment to him
and the Work he has been called to do. 

The wife of a Pastor is no ordinary role,
it’s not for the jealous nor timid soul.
So I take this moment without further ado,
to say we celebrate you.  Though demands
are never ending & recognitions are few,
your smiles are ever present, never stale,
each one new. You’re an example to the sister
and encourager to the brother, while obeying
Christ’s command that we serve one another.
You’re gloriously appreciated as an enhancer
of life. You’re not just a Queen...
You’re a Pastor’s Wife.

Celebrating 18 Years of Commitment and
Love of Our Lord in Ministry!
