The Wateringwell is a Christian faith-based inspirational platform to connect, motivate, encourage and empower divorced women and single mothers.
With grace, empathy, and authenticity, we engage with our community to fulfill our vision.
The Wateringwell’s Vision
- To form a safe community for divorced women and single mothers to connect
- Motivate our community through a coaching membership site.
- To encourage our members to discover their unique gifts, talents, and abilities.
- To provide the support and resources to equip women to be self-sufficient in God, independent, and productive God-led leaders of their homes.
God is first in all that we do here at The Wateringwell as many biblical truths are relevant in this space; therefore our content is biblically supported and frequently referenced.
Together with scripture, we also believe in the power of testimony. God’s word is applicable to all of us and as God’s vessels, with unique characters and experiences, we welcome the sharing of stories to encourage one another.
I share many of my own experiences in my blog posts, which combine true-life examples along with biblical wisdom.

Our Personal Wells
Just like physical wells, our personal wells, in other words, the resources we draw our energy from, can be tangible and/or spiritual. The spiritual wells that replenish and fulfill us may be Church life, God’s word, prayer, family, friends, or even our work, depending on what it is. Physical wells are namely the food we eat, relaxation time, and a healthy lifestyle.
Of course, there are also the ‘bad wells’, which are areas of our lives that have become dry, tainted, or poisoned and not good for our well-being. They present in various forms and may even masquerade as something good, but at the end of the day leave us depleted and stressed out. It is important that we are mindful of where and what we are drawing from.
We deal with all these topics in the context of the blog.
How is your well?
Jesus is the ultimate well from which we draw our strength.
“Whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” John 4:14.
You may rest in that blessed promise. No matter how dry we are, He will always provide refreshment and the nourishment we need.
God warns us in Jeremiah 2:13 “My people have committed two sins: they have forsaken me, the spring of living water, and have dug their own cisterns (wells), broken cisterns, that can hold no water”.
We are often responsible for getting ourselves into predicaments. The good news is that God does not hold it against us and is always there to give us a hand up and out of the miry pit.
Where to Start
The Wateringwell has 6 basic categories-or maybe we should call them wells :). They are loosely based on Zig Ziglar’s wellness wheel and include Spiritual, Health, Finance, Relationships, Leisure, and Self. Follow the links in the top menu.
I would suggest you start with the Check Me Out Challenge post to establish which wells may require a bit of attention before they run dry.
Alternatively, you can download the questionnaires by filling out the subscription form below.
Make sure your wells are full before you hit crisis mode. Prepare in advance. Surround yourself with healthy wells and fill them with all that is good and pleasing to God.
