Fruit of the Spirit

If you were to flip through the back of my Bible, you would notice a lot of underlining, highlighting, and notes in the margins. Should you flip through the Old Testament, however, you would notice the notes and highlights become few and far between. In my time with the Lord each day, I consistently flip […]

the weight of words I walked down the aisle in the white dress I’d dreamed about pretty much my whole life. My dad gave me away, and almost everyone I loved watched as I turned to face the man who was about to become my husband. My heart raced while the pastor spoke, and when […]

Walk in Grace Journal by Well-Watered Women: Study the book of Philippians with this guided journal!

Hey sister! Ever had a hard time studying Scripture? Trust me—I know that opening the Bible to study can be overwhelming, daunting, and confusing.

Every year, amidst the cheerful tunes ringing throughout stores, the twinkling lights adorning the rooftops, and the comforting scent of cookies baking, there always seems to be a “scrooge” I come across who crushes the joy of the season. It could be a family member who refuses to crack a smile beneath the scowl on […]

Joy is not something we manufacture on our own. It flows from a heart that is Christ-centered. Joy is an ongoing state of mind and heart for the Christ-follower. It is present when life is peaceful and free of pain, and it is present when life swirls around us, chaotic and troubled. Scripture makes the case that joy is something more than a feeling we experience when things are going well.

When we are walking alongside the Lord and seeking His will for our lives, the fruit of the Holy Spirit will be present.  One of the fruit that results is joy. Paul mentions joy early on in listing the fruit of the Spirit: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, […]

How to Flourish This Fall: Practical tips for thriving, not surviving as a Christian Woman (Back to school tips for your family!)
