Feeling useless in his ministry

by Feeling
(Useless)

My husband is pastoring his first church and I am having a hard time feeling useful. He communicates directly with all the women in the church by texting. I've asked him to please stop doing it and he even announced it at church for ladies to text me. But nothing changed.

Over our 18 years of marriage he has always struggled with pornography addiction. It has given me a very low self esteem and I struggle with knowing he's texting women in church. Even if it's just prayer requests or general information I just wonder if it could lead to something more.

He also works with ALL WOMEN and that frequently makes me jealous. He knows all their names and frequently talks about women at work. We moved here from out of state and because I homeschool our children I don't know anyone and feel very alone.

PLEASE HELP
