Fruit of the Spirit

“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 […]

[Editor’s Note: This article is adapted from Jessica Thompson’s new book, How God Loves Us: 40 Days to Discovering His Character in the Fruit of the Spirit.] The phrase “fruit of the Spirit” may conjure up a pithy kid’s song you learned in Sunday school or a list of words that you would never use […]

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 […]
