Jani Ortlund is the wife of Pastor Ray Ortlund of Immanuel Church in Nashville, author of Fearlessly Feminine and His Loving Law, Our Lasting Legacy, and a speaker with Renewal Ministries.
Today, in a video posted on her husband's blog, she reminded other pastors' wives of how to love others and trust God when their husbands are the objects of slanderous gossip. I think it was part of a series of invitations to a conference for ministry wives called "Defined by God."
Mrs. Ortlund generously donated her time to serving as a critical reader in the developmental stage of Resisting Gossip, and I was so encouraged to receiver her endorsement:
Matthew Mitchell’s book on resisting gossip helped me greatly, and the timing was perfect. I want to thank him for his wise and godly counsel, straight from our Father’s heart. I can hear the author’s voice, and it doesn’t beat me up. It challenges and exhorts, but shows me we are in this together for much good.” – Jani Ortlund
