This article is part of our series on broken wells. In Gretchen’s new book, The Well-Watered Woman, chapter 5 is about “Forsaking Broken Wells.” We long for the living water that Jesus offers (John 4:10) but too often settle for empty wells and broken cisterns (Jer. 2:11-13). Gretchen explains, “We spend a lot of our […]

Broken Wells: Comfort

I was never good at the game of tug of war. Well, I’ve never been good at any sports game for that matter. Competition in sports isn’t my cup of tea. But I found other ways to compete and prove my worth in life. Excelling in grades, winning awards, and outdoing my fellow peers in […]

Tug of War for Truth

By Gretchen Saffles

For the longest time, I’ve felt like I am stuck in the middle without an end in sight. I’ve heard it said that writing a book is like birthing a baby. But a baby comes in nine months, and a book takes at least two years. Write, rewrite, edit, and repeat have been the theme […]

Hope for the Hard Middle

Ever since I was a baby in the womb, I have been in church. I’ve heard thousands of sermons, attended a private Christian school, and have a lineage of pastors in my family. Needless to say, I’ve heard the Word preached many times. And I’ve been like that foolish person who simply listened and walked […]

The sky burst with brilliant colors. It looked as if someone splattered pink and purple watercolors onto the clouds. Being outside of the everyday […]

I was scrolling through Instagram the other day, mindlessly perusing. Suddenly, this adorable girl posted this insanely cute sweater that I really liked.

Letting Go of Beauty

Church can feel like an add-on to our weeks. We’ve already invested so much time in going to Tuesday morning moms’ group, writing in our journals and following our inductive studies, listening to podcasts and sermons in the car, humming worship music while scrubbing dishes, and teaching our children the classic Bible stories during family […]

Why You Need Your Local Church

When a Journal Seems Daunting Growing up, I was never really into journaling. I loved the concept of it and frequently bought notebooks and journals, but every journal piled up on my shelves and remained blank. I didn’t know what to write about, and I didn’t want a written record of my misplaced emotions, fits […]

Journal Prompts for Every Woman

By Fernie Cosgrove

Confession: I created the Give Me Jesus Journal to help women study the Word daily, and some days I don’t use it or finish my entry. There are days when I linger for a long time in the Word, and there are days when I only read one verse. Some days I start reading my […]
