This post is expanded from an entry in our Dear Mama devotional. An Unexpected Loss In April of 2015, I delivered a stillborn baby boy—Ford—three weeks before his due date. Our firstborn daughter was 16 months old, and the loss was completely unexpected and of unknown causes. The Lord was so gracious to us on […]

“So when are you guys going to have kids?” Someone asked me this question at my wedding reception. Let that sink in. I’ve been asked a variation of this question at least once a month for the past seven years. I wish I was exaggerating, but if you’ve been married any length of time and […]

Infertility and Waiting It was the week before Mother’s Day. I realized that a little something that was supposed to start the previous week had not. For the first time in my life, I had reason to believe that I could actually be expecting! Day by day, hope rose higher and higher within me, and […]

A Long Day It had been a long day of disappointments. My heart was heavy, and my mind sorted through each weighty thought one by one, like a cashier taking inventory. It felt as if more had been given than was received, and my soul was nearing depletion. Standing in the shower, as the steam […]

Behind Closed Doors For several weeks, writers have shared their honest stories on the Well-Watered Blog about sins that typically hide “behind closed doors”—including: Food and Fear Bitterness Gossip Sexual Sin, Boundaries in Dating, and Confessing Sexual Sin Idleness and “Busy” Idleness Food for Comfort Alcohol Eating Disorders And Materialism This is certainly not a […]

I Would Never… “I would never starve myself of food,” I mentioned to my mom nonchalantly as we stood in the kitchen my senior year of high school. I’d heard of girls who refused to eat because of an obsession with food, and frankly, I thought the idea of doing such a thing was absurd. […]

From Want to Need We probably don’t know each other, but I wish we could sit down on the squishy couch in the middle of my messy living room and look each other in the eye. Face-to-face, you would see that I’m not here to condemn. I’m not looking to burden you with shame over […]

Disordered Eating Every time I try to write this post, I feel inadequate because I struggle with the topic of food—every single day. For the longest time, I believed I would never struggle with an eating disorder because I just love food too much. I couldn’t imagine going an entire day without it. I still […]

Joy and Happiness Joy, in my opinion, is the most confusing virtue of the fruit of the Spirit. Often, we think of joy as being synonymous with happiness. Happiness, however, is a feeling that comes and goes. We have all experienced the fleeting nature of happiness, only to find ourselves searching for satisfaction again the […]

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 […]
