[This week we’re celebrating the one-year anniversary of The Well-Watered Woman! In this article originally posted on book launch day, Gretchen reminds us that looking forward to the end provides hope for the hard middle and the everyday mundane. Read on to find out why she needed these specific truths as she labored through each […]

I stopped myself from singing along in praise. I was in the car, listening to worship music, and decided to turn it off. After finishing up a phone call that I had psyched myself up for over many days, I just wanted to stew in my own thoughts. I had tried to keep my expectations […]

“God made your body to do this.” As I prepared for the natural birth of my daughter last year, midwives encouraged me to repeat this truth during labor. I pulled those words over me like a warm blanket every day before my daughter arrived. But when the contractions intensified, I felt like a fool for […]

“I don’t know if I believe in God anymore.” We were driving home late one night when the words I’d been too scared to say for months finally tumbled out of my mouth. Despite the fact that he was driving, my husband turned and stared at me in shock. I watched him mentally search for […]

This article is part of our This Moment Matters series. Read previous articles in the series here: “Does This Really Matter?” by Gretchen Saffles “Being an Ambassador in Your Workplace” by Fernie Cosgrove “Why Your Local Church Matters” by Taylor Cage The first argument I ever had with my husband was about money.

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 […]

Deep breath in, deep breath out. 2021 is almost here.  There’s always something exciting and refreshing about a new year. But with the year we’ve had in 2020, we all long to start new. Since last spring, I’ve seen people joking online, “Can 2020 just be over now?” This strange year has seemed endlessly daunting. […]

God’s Goodness in Hard Seasons “Everything about my life feels hard.”  I spoke these words to a friend and I wasn’t being dramatic or seeking to gain her pity. It’s just the reality of living through my husband’s second deployment this year, caring for our six children on my own, and handling the challenges of […]

No Filter Faith She’s got her fancy journaling Bible and her special pens. She finds the best obscure theologian quotes to post with the most down-to-earth captions. It seems she has been running an online ministry since she finished college. Maybe she’s Gretchen or maybe she’s your childhood best friend or maybe she’s your pastor’s […]
