Picks and Pans Review: Her Purpose-Driven Life
Think it's easy being married to mega-preacher and author (The Purpose Driven Life) Rick Warren? In her candid memoir, Kay Warren reveals how tough she's found it—and how an unlikely cause of her own, AIDS activism, has helped.
WHY AIDS? In 2002 I read an article about AIDS in Africa. Millions of people were just wasting away. It rocked my world.
WHAT IS YOUR MESSAGE? We tell people to save sex for marriage, but we also say limit partners, and we support consistent use of condoms. The church has mostly been absent [from this fight], but it has to get involved.
HOW HAS YOUR MISSION HELPED YOUR MARRIAGE? For years I felt put on a shelf while my husband raced forward. I felt resentful. But we grew up and have had good marriage counseling. He went with me to Africa and saw that fighting AIDS isn't just for you, Kay—it's for us and for everybody. After 32 years Rick is my best friend.
