Fruit of the Spirit

This is an excerpt from our Flourish Study: 8 weeks on the Fruit of the Spirit. Find it here. Deep beneath the surface of the earth is a world that rarely meets the eyes. In the darkness of fertile soil, the hands of God are molding, shaping, and cultivating the vegetation we see around us. […]

This post about joy is an excerpt from our 12-week bible study on spiritual disciplines: Planted. Find it in the Well-Watered Co. today. The Mystery of Joy In a world seeking happiness and pleasure, the mystery of the joy of the Lord often gets lost. As believers, we have tapped into the abundant riches of […]

A Deeper Gratitude Every Thanksgiving, the tradition of going around the table and proclaiming thanks one by one leaves me feeling frustrated. Why does this practice feel empty and insufficient to me? I think it’s because thankfulness, as a sinner-made-saint, demands an understanding of gratitude far beyond a last-minute toss-up. And so I search my […]

The Need for Everyday Joys When we named this collection “The Everyday Joys” Collection a few weeks ago, we had no idea what state the world would be in today. Amidst increasing health concerns with CoVID-19, cities and states practicing social distancing, toilet tissue running low, and everything else that comes with the threat of […]

First Steps of Friendship On the first day of kindergarten, I decided I was going to befriend a girl in my class. I was too scared to initiate a conversation with her (social anxiety manifests itself young), so my strategy was to follow her at a distance until she noticed me and said hello. This […]

Introducing the Well-Watered Women Unshaken Faith Collection

From My Heart to Yours Hey sister, Many of you who open the Unshaken journal are walking through a season of struggle, questioning, or suffering which has caused anxiety and worry to pile up in your heart like a heavy weight. You may even feel like the darkness you have encountered in this life has […]

Perfectionism Paralysis Maybe it’s a personality thing, but I find perfectionism creeping into every area of my life—including my relationship with God. So often, I have an ideal in my head of what something needs to look like, and nothing less will do. I’m not artsy, so Instagram-worthy doodles on Scripture’s pages will never be […]

Why is faithfulness so hard to find? I believe it is because we are bombarded by lies that tell us that life is all about us.

Living Selflessly in a Selfish Culture In our world today, faithfulness is a rare character trait. People walk away from spouses they have been married to for decades. Millennials are characterized by their flakiness and fear of commitment. Children are growing up in single-parent homes because fathers have not answered the call to biblical manhood […]

Battling for Truth in the Midnight Hours

Early Morning Moments The time was 2 a.m. I could hear the deep, rhythmic breathing of my husband as I fed our newborn son. Since I don’t fall asleep easily, I had already been awake most of the night. A few years earlier this would have been really stressful for me, but after four children […]

“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).

Unknown Circumstances I was four weeks away from graduating from college. While most seniors were living up their last days of pre-real-world bliss, I was facing the hardest decision of my life so far. Internships, interviews, and job offers had collided in the best and worst of ways, and I had one week to make […]
