    I get confused about the proper usage of Me and I

    I wrote:
    My wife Sharon and I were called into the bus ministry.

    Is that correct?

    Yes, it is correct.

    In order not to get confused using "I & Me", I will explain briefly.

    I is a subject pronoun - I play football
    Me is an object pronoun - You asked me

    The Part of speech of "My wife Sharon and I" is a subject, thus you should use I
    Is this satisfied you?

    It is correct. Some people say 'Sharon and me were called', but regard this as unacceptable.
