To the casual onlooker it may seem that some successful men and women have had a streak of good luck. But when we get to know these people who are doing things, we find luck did not enter into their success. And there is no magic formula. It is no secret.
At a meeting of student ministers' wives held in one of our colleges we listened to a very enjoyable letter from a young woman who was enjoying her first experience as the wife of a pastor-teacher. This letter was a girlish chat with her former college friends whose husbands anticipated entering the ministry. Ruthie's interesting epistle reveals her consecration and gratitude for service and so we asked for the privilege of using the letter in THE MINISTRY.—L. C. K.
