Joy

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 […]

When Plans Change Ah, summertime. The days are endless and the sun is plentiful. The heat is constant and the routine is … lacking? Perhaps you’re a college student whose internship was canceled, and you’re not sure how to fill your days. Maybe you’re a mama of young kids and are struggling to keep up […]

Cocooning At Home It was a trying time—an isolating season. But as advised, we pulled away from all of our normal social activities and gatherings.

Two our our team members, Kristin and Amelia, have shared their stories about infertility and infant loss on the Well-Watered blog. They have also graciously compiled resources that […]

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 […]
