the well-watered woman

Coming April 6, 2021

discover the bottomless, refreshing well of god's word–and experience a fullness and peace beyond your circumstances.

In the chaos of our everyday, it can be difficult to live out and apply the truths of Scripture. We want more of Jesus, but we find ourselves looking to our own lives and accomplishments for our worth and identity. And while that may buoy us for a time, we’re often left feeling dried up, discouraged, and longing for more. Gretchen Saffles knows what it’s like to feel overwhelmed and unable to flourish.

In The Well-Watered Woman, Gretchen leads us to the Well of fullness, the Word of freedom, and the Way of fruitfulness. She teaches that God's Word will satisfy us for all eternity. Using Scripture and her own personal story of surrender, Gretchen offers spiritually hungry women tangible tools to not only know Jesus more but to live a life that thoroughly enjoys Him, seeks Him, and follows Him into freedom.

For years, I’ve watched Gretchen lead and lean into the mission of encouraging women to dig deeply into the Word of God. I’ve seen her model it, share vulnerably through difficult seasons, and consistently point others to God’s faithfulness. God’s written a story in and through her that is not about her, but about God’s tending and care. And through these pages, Gretchen will lead us again and again, back to the only source for life and godliness —the living water of God’s Word.

The Well-Watered Woman stirred my affections for Jesus and reminded me that following him is a lifestyle, not merely a box to check off on my spiritual to-do list. In this book, Gretchen Saffles points to Christ on every page and, in doing so, invites readers to look to him every moment of every day.

Gretchen offers a fresh perspective on living a faith-filled life that both revives the dried-up Christian’s hope and lets her breathe a sigh of relief. She gives her readers permission to ditch the pursuit of picture-perfect spiritual performance and, instead, embrace authenticity with God so that his presence and his Word can flow down and water the parched, untouched roots of her weary soul.
