Rest

A Change of Plans 2020 has not been what anyone expected. When I wrote down my dreams for this year on January 1st, it did not involve a global pandemic or worldwide unrest. We are over halfway through the year. But chances are, you’re feeling tired, soul-weary, and a little offbeat. As I’ve dug deep […]

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. We stayed at home day after day, avoiding big groups of people and only going out when necessary. We spent about eight weeks in this unique season called “cocooning.” You […]

Staying Connected in Social Distancing During this time of “social distancing,” God has provided incredible opportunities to stay connected to the body of Christ through the internet. Though the online world can be a dark place, God, in His infinite wisdom and power, can pierce the darkness with the truth and the light of Christ! […]

Full-Blown Panic A few years ago I had my first full-blown panic attack. To say it caught me off-guard and knocked me off my feet would be an understatement. Until that point, I had lived life going 100 mph at all times, like a speeding train with no brakes. I learned the hard way in […]

Now and Then One of my mother-in-law’s best qualities is her ability to save money. One of the many ways we have all benefited from this is her knack for keeping things we’ll need later. When we had our first child (her first grandchild) you would not believe the amount of baby gear she had […]

A New Mindset “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”  (Isaiah 55:8–9) Wait, child. The phrase spoken into my situation after I talked […]

In the Night I pull my coat on, grab my bag, and head out into the night—though sometimes I’d prefer to be heading to bed instead of to work. But work is a privilege. I, along with an amazing team, look after some of the very vulnerable, who know their days are counted, and provide […]

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 […]

Sometimes "No" is the best gift God can give us.

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 […]

strength and weakness One of my greatest weaknesses is that I believe “I can do it all.” I want to be able to work a full-time job, work over 20 hours at my part-time job, volunteer, host dinners at our place, coordinate events, start student organizations, translate blogs/videos, pursue graduate school full-time, and be a […]
