Our Plans We will become foster parents once we have “our own” kids. That’s what my husband and I thought for a while. But God had other plans. On our first date, we talked about how we would love to adopt one day. However, when we became aware of the plight that is the foster […]

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 […]

How to honor God when no one else is seeing your actions - By Well-Watered Women

I have learned, and am learning still, that we are called to pour forth every facet of our lives in worship. There are many spheres of our lives (motherhood being one that I am knee-deep in at the moment) in which we have the opportunity to present a beautiful aroma of worship to the Lord […]

one of those days I was just getting ready to rush out the door with my kids when I checked my phone and saw a little red notification pop up, letting me know I had a new Facebook message. While the kiddos put their shoes on, I opened it to find a note from a […]

Shining the Light of Christ This Halloween: When we choose to instead close our doors and turn off the lights, we miss the one night of the year where our neighbors are coming to us! How often do we invite people to church or to our home for a gathering only to be rejected? What a wonderful opportunity to say “yes!” on Halloween night when they come straight to our doors. This time of year is the beginning of cooler weather, festive gatherings, and togetherness. It offers us the opportunity to reach out to our neighbors and friends in creative ways.

There are practices this time of year that are downright demonic. But when most people mention that they enjoy celebrating Halloween, they aren’t talking about their love of séances and Ouija […]

When we were first married, my husband and I, like many young couples, had opposite expectations for many things. When our first anniversary rolled around, he wanted to go camping but I wanted to go to Malibu. When buying items for our first Christmas, he grabbed the colored Christmas lights and I grabbed the white. […]

I grew up in a loving home and am blessed with two parents who deeply love God and each other. My father is also a pastor. There are a myriad of reactions I get when this comes up in conversation—mostly knowing looks, sometimes sympathetic ones. I told this to one woman who turned to my […]

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

Are you flourishing? If I were to describe my life on a daily basis, the word “flourishing” would most likely not make the list. Overwhelmed, busy, and tired would find their way to the top, while life-giving words like flourish, abundant, and thriving would often fall to the bottom of the list. However, Scripture clearly […]

I’m not yet 30, but I’m old enough to remember dial-up connections and AOL Instant Messenger, “away messages” to let people know when you were away from your computer, arguing with siblings over who got to use the computer to “get online,” and then arguing again when your time was up because you were in […]
