Fear

Choosing Intentionality Don’t waste your quarantine. Yes, I know it’s inconvenient and very unsettling. I know plans are drastically changed and a new normal hasn’t been set in place. But even still, don’t waste these days. Some day this quarantine will end. Some day things will be back to the norm. But will we look […]

Girls’ Night Surprise Recently, I was hosting a sweet friend of mine for dinner. My husband was out of town, and I was looking forward to utilizing the time for a relaxing “girls’ night in.” I was planning to make tacos for our dinner together, and I had pre-planned the menu earlier in the week […]

Spending our days in a manner worthy of the Gospel.

idleness creeps in I worked part-time in college, but when I graduated I kept that same 20-hours-per-week job for awhile. Sure, I searched for a full-time job, but it took over a year; it was in that year that the sin of idleness came to light in my life. I would go to my job […]

“I think we’re just … better as friends.” I suddenly felt like I might throw up. Sitting cross-legged in my closet so my parents couldn’t hear my conversation on the phone, I felt time stop—or transition into slow motion, at least. “For sure,” I said on the other end of the line. Click. That was […]

God's Presence

an unexpected morning I awoke on my kitchen floor, shaking with cold and shock, blood trickling from my mouth. Touching my lip, I found it swollen and terribly tender under my fingers. I took a few breaths in the darkness, hearing the refrigerator’s hum behind me, and tried to recall what had happened. In a […]

Place Makers: How to be Inclusive as a Woman of God

“I saved a seat for you!” These words from my new friend were exactly what I needed to hear to take a deep breath and relax. Just moments before, I had been sitting in my car and very seriously considering just going home. As a generally outgoing person, I was embarrassed by how nervous I […]

When feelings feel overwhelming “I feel so out of control. I am such a mess. I feel CRAZY.” I have spoken these exact words, or some rendition of them, more times than I can count over the past two months. My story with medication for depression and anxiety began a few years ago, but this […]

You are not alone. Mental Illness is real. Period. And it lies to you constantly. And if you choose to listen to the lies long enough... it will convince you to believe that what it’s saying to you is true. - Blog post by Well-Watered Women
