What does it mean to be a first lady? 
believe it means that you help set the pulse of the church like the mother in the home.

The expectations of others.

Did you ever think you would become who you are today? 
A leader, yes; a pastor’s wife, no. 
How do you balance church and home life? 
You remind yourself that we are a team. God is the head of the team. And when the church lights go off, we were husband and wife, before we were pastors.
What is your advice to future first ladies or those who already serve in the capacity?
Never let people make you their God. We could never measure up that high.
