I first met Kay in 1974 when I accepted Jesus as my Savior, Kay did not know the tremendous effect she had on my life. Her gentle and loving spirit was so apparent to me, I felt I could sit for hours listening to Kay talk about her love for Jesus. My special times with her were spent in Lake Arrowhead at the women's retreats. Kay patiently listened to my personal experiences then shared what word the Lord had given her on what issues I had told her about. Now you can listen to these teachings from Kay and be as blessed as I was and still am.

The Bedouin woman in Bethlehem reached down and picked up a handful of rocks. A shepherdess will sometimes throw a pebble gently when a sheep starts to wander away from the fold. This calls them back to safety. But this woman didn’t throw gently. She wore an angry scowl and threw those rocks with a vengeance. She didn’t want to be in that field tending those sheep. She wanted to be anyplace else in the world.
At times, we find ourselves standing in a field we didn’t choose for ourselves, tending to a task we never wanted. But when the call to that field—and the sheep it contains—comes from God Himself, then you’ve just been given a privilege.
The Privilege is a loving conversation between friends. Kay Smith has a special place in her heart for pastors’ wives and women in leadership—to any woman who has been asked to nurture and feed others. If you are a pastor’s wife, mother, Sunday school teacher or ministry leader, let Kay’s unique blend of encouragement and exhortation inspire you to take a second look at the opportunity you’ve been given.
Whether you’ve been called to nurture sheep or nurture children, the lessons Kay has gleaned over 62 years of ministry will refresh your heart and inspire you to love the ones God has entrusted to you all the more fervently.
