  2. Thank you so much for your blog! I am a new presvytera feeling rather lonely. It’s nice to know there are other presvyteras out there dealing with similar struggles.

    I am a Romanian Orthodox priest’s wife (preoteasa). I am grateful that I discovered this blog. I would love to read about how to manage life when you have 5 children and are a presbytera. Maybe other clergy wives can offer some advice.

    That is a big topic! I did not raise that many children, but it was still a challenge at times, and I know some clergy wives with large families. I’ll keep the topic in mind and see what aspects we can tackle in a future post– thank you for the suggestion!

  5. I’m currently dating a seminary graduate. So far, I’ve gotten pretty good advice from my priest and preoteasa. Thanks for the online community. I have a feeling I’ll need it in the next 2-5 years (assuming all goes well…).

    Thank you for your blog! I am a Presbytera, separated for over 10 years, and have wanted to catch up to others and carve out a new place in clergy wife society for a long time now, instead of continuing to hide. I think I’m long past the fear of “gossip” by now. St. Augustine always said “Truth is like a lion – let it loose, and it will defend itself. My focus will be on helping formerly abused clergy wives, despite my husband still being allowed to serve in a totally different Jurisdiction, focus on helping other Presbytera who endure Parental Alienation Syndrome. I would like to make an online platform like yours that many could turn to in times of distress.
