Today is also Erin's birthday, so what better time to celebrate the life of this amazing partner in ministry? Enjoy!
Introduce yourself as if we were on a coffee date! Tell us about yourself. Would you be drinking coffee or tea?
Hi! I’m Erin Clack, wife to Cameron and mother to two sweet little girls, Kallie and Kendall. Cameron and I met while we were attending the University of Georgia and have been married since 2008. My job before becoming a mother and employee at Well-Watered Women was working as a Middle School media specialist. I love learning, reading, and having fun with my family. I would most definitely be drinking a bit of coffee with my creamer.
When did you start following Jesus?
My life as a follower of Christ started when I was seven years old. I accepted Jesus as my Savior during a children’s worship presentation, but didn’t publicly confess and become baptized until I was fourteen. My sanctification has been a daily progress since that time.
What is your definition of a well-watered woman?
A well-watered woman is one who daily turns to the Lord to be filled by His Spirit so that she can walk through her day with Him as her guide and provider.
How do you give Jesus the first moments of your day?
My goal each day is the rise before my sweet girls because I struggle to focus on anything once our day gets started. I use my moments of quiet to study His Word, pray for the day, and go through any Bible study material I’m currently using.
What sort of spiritual season do you find yourself in now? What verses are you clinging to in this season?
I’m currently trying to daily have a faithful heart that stops striving in my own power and doesn’t doubt the Mighty God I serve. My daily verse right now is, “I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ” (Philippians 1:6).
What intentional daily habits help you remain rooted deeply in the Word of God?
I love keeping Scripture posted around my house to remind myself of the truth of God’s Word. I also have to make myself stop and pray in the moments that my emotions threaten so that I don’t give in to the lies of my flesh.
Who is a "well-watered mentor" or example in your life, and how has she helped you become a well-watered woman?
My mother and grandmother have been beautiful examples of faithful, godly women. In the trials they have experienced, they have remained steadfast to the Lord. I am reminded that God can be praised in both the suffering and joy of life because my God is a faithful God!
What books are you currently reading, or have recently read, and would recommend to our community?
I am currently reading The Five Love Languages of Children by Gary Chapman, which is excellent for anyone who has children or works with children, and one of my favorite books is C.S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity. As a person who can struggle with doubt, I love hearing the case Lewis makes for Christianity that refutes the lies in my mind.
If you could tell every woman reading this blog one piece of wisdom, what would it be?
God’s plan is always for our good. “Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing” (James 1:2–4).
