Well - Watered


Grow: Undergo natural development by increasing in size and changing physically; progress to maturity. Develop, come into existence, increase, become gradually or increasingly. We talked about planting – the painful but necessary process for growth. And we talked about flourishing, how just saying the word flourish sounds lovely and fun. There’s something beautiful about the idea […]

Well-Watered Women: Grow


Flourish: Grow or develop in a healthy or vigorous way, especially as the result of a particularly favorable environment. Develop rapidly and successfully.  It’s hard to flourish when we feel exhausted, overworked, overwhelmed and needy. How can we flourish when we can’t even finish a task without getting distracted and moving on to the next item […]

Flourish: Week Eight

Studying the Bible

We’ve have loved studying Flourish the past six weeks with you. We’re recapping week Six on Kindness and Goodness, and praying that we would believe He is our true Good. Here’s a look at week Seven: Faithfulness and Gentleness. We pray that our faithful God will draw near to you and gently encourage your heart this week.

Flourish: Week Six

Studying the Bible

When we start to believe that our very best in this life can be found by just achieving our goals, we forget that only good comes from God. I’m sharing some of my story with weight and the never-ending battle of saying goodbye to insecurity and hello to abundance in Christ.

We’re recapping our week Five on Patience, and asking the Lord to fix our gaze on the Lord so that we can joyfully surrender to His timing. Here’s a look at week six: Kindness and Goodness.

Flourish: Week Five

Well-Watered Women

The Joyful Surrender

Studying the Bible

How do we patiently wait for the Lord when we do not receive the answer we are seeking? How do we get through those moments, or weeks, or years of “Not Right Now”? We long to be women who trust the faithful hand of God more than we long for His answer. Let’s lean into the Not Right Now.

Flourish: Week Four

Well-Watered Women

When the reality of the storm threatened the disciples’ little kingdom, they forgot the strength of God who was with them on the boat. They let fear rule their hearts and doubted the love of their friend, Lord, teacher and master. They doubted His goodness because the reality of the situation seemed too much to handle. But Christ was always there – just as He was – and that was enough.
