Heart Check

Submission: Good or Bad? “Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their […]

Walls Up, Guard Up The walls around my heart and mind have been up for most of my life. Quick to defend, always on guard, hearing the worst instead of the intent. I’ve lived life on the defense for nearly three decades. Early on in dating my (now) husband, we had a conversation that nearly […]

I will gladly sign […]

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 […]

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. Last year we released a devotional specifically for college girls called Dear […]

Beyond a Budget Our family lives on a budget. My conscientious husband has crafted a category for everything and assigned it a portion of our paychecks. Every year we talk about it and tweak it, allocating a little more to groceries and a little less to eating out, or a little less to travel and […]
