Joy

Resources for Miscarriage, Infant Loss, and Infertility Mother’s Day can be painful for many of us. Some are grieving, others are longing, many are waiting and hoping. 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 […]

The new collection in the Well-Watered Shop is geared at encouraging moms of all seasons and life phases.

Dear Mama The Well-Watered Women Community is made up of women of all ages, races, and seasons of life. It is our goal at Well-Watered Women to illuminate the hope of the gospel to every woman and encourage you right where you are.

Our joy in the Lord in every season shows that our ultimate happiness is not rooted in our circumstances.

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 […]

god-centered community God designed you for community (1 Peter 2:4–5; Eph. 2:19–22). He made you with a desire to connect with other people who can grow with you, cry with you, sharpen you, encourage you, and laugh with you. No matter your stage or season, all of us long to find people we can simply […]

Every year I find myself glued to the TV screen watching a cheesy Hallmark Christmas movie. Within the first five minutes I can usually gauge what the characters will be like, who will end up falling in love with whom, and how the ending will turn out—which we all know is “happily ever after.” Even […]

Loving Others When It's Not So Easy: Loving the Ungrateful During the Holidays

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 […]

God's Presence

an unexpected morning I awoke on my kitchen floor, shaking with cold and shock, blood trickling from my mouth. Touching my lip, I found it swollen and terribly tender under my fingers. I took a few breaths in the darkness, hearing the refrigerator’s hum behind me, and tried to recall what had happened. In a […]

Two years ago, while everyone was sipping their pumpkin spice lattes and taking pictures in pumpkin patches, I was at home sinking into a deep depression following a surgery that didn’t go as planned. What was supposed to be a routine operation left me sick beyond belief, resulting in an anxious and fearful heart. Many […]

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, […]
