Thanks, SamFromCBD. You can see where my confusion stems from--the publisher's description is surprisingly unclear. "Helpful for all pastors and their spouses" ought to read "helpful for male pastors and their wives", etc!

This book is written specifically for men in ministry who struggle to balance serving the church with leading a family. The sections written by Cara feature wisdom gained as a pastor's wife/mother.
