When Hilary’s mom made her take piano lessons because one day she might marry a pastor and need to know how to play the piano, Hilary told her “I will never marry a pastor!”

Well, how’s that working out for you, Hilary? In this episode, she shares her story of moving from unsaved pastor’s kid to a lead pastor’s wife who plays the piano and serves her church in a multitude of other ways. You’re going to love her joy and be encouraged by her testimony.
