Well - Watered


There’s probably a woman out there who loves folding laundry and scrubbing dirty dishes, and I am not that woman. I don’t naturally love cleaning and picking up every single day. With me, my two year old and my husband under one roof, our home gets messy in the blink of an eye. It sometimes […]

This post was written by Elizabeth Santelmann. Read more about Elizabeth at the bottom of the post. I struggle to keep Truth before me. I tend to be one of those people who move back and forth between agonizing doubt and stepping forward in faith. The dry times in various phases of motherhood have derailed […]

Faithfulness In Our Everyday


Sand snuggled up to my toes, salty water rushing over my feet, sky bursting with brilliant colors – there’s nothing more humbling and awe-inspiring than standing on the seashore, allowing the waves to inch up and remind me that I’m part of a bigger Story. There is something about being outside the everyday norm that reminds me that I am not the main character of this life. In no way have I added to the ocean, painted the sunset, or carved out the grains of sand. I am a spectator, an embracer of the beauty and the vastness of the world around me.

And yet, I often think I’m the creator and the originator of these great ideas. I think I hold the world, well, my world and the world of those around me, together. Quick glimpses of the larger view of creation are good for the soul, and they put me in my place, but they are rare to come by.

Sand Castle Kingdoms


In the brief time I’ve been a momma, my identity has been flipped upside down and my dependency on God has been tethered to the cross of Christ. No season of life has brought me to my knees more than this new journey of learning to be a momma. Each day, much less, each second is a holy emptying of my self-centered desires and a filling up of Christ. I can’t do this work of sanctification on my own. We can’t do anything beautiful and worthwhile on our own. That’s the beauty of the gospel in everyday life. Just like the changing of nature’s seasons also brings a change in our habits, wardrobe, and lifestyle, so do the changing of the seasons of life bring a remaking of our identity. God is remaking me into a woman who hungers after His heart and clings to Him with a fierce grip as I learn to be a momma.
