Welcome to The Wateringwell, a Christian faith-based blog providing inspiration and motivation for women, particularly divorced and single moms.
Following God’s will, living in His purpose, finding our peace, and overcoming challenges, is something that is especially close to my heart. More women should be reaching their true potential and living fulfilled meaningful lives. No matter your past, your age or your circumstances, experiencing the peace and blessings that God our Father promises us, is for everybody, not a select few.
The Wateringwell is my way of reaching out to those who need to talk, or those in a desperate situation who feel there is nobody to turn to. Perhaps you are somebody who has faced and overcome a challenge before and finds yourself equipped to share and encourage others. Or you may not have had hardship but possess the gift of uplifting. If any of these sound like you, then The Wateringwell is your place.
Purpose of the ‘Well
Over the years, I have counseled many exhausted women who struggle with everyday challenges. Everybody around them seems to be fighting their own battles, so instead of asking for help, they keep quiet and bottle it up. They may ‘manage’ the burden for a while but eventually, it becomes too much to bear.
As a result, we are facing a growing number of women who are barely functioning. Through conversations in the corridors of work, the counseling room, and amongst friends, I have realized that women need a convenient place where they can recharge.
Having experienced my own share of challenges, I know with certainty that through the love of Christ, Biblical principles, and sound knowledge, you can recover to lead productive and fulfilling lives once more.
I have an arsenal of tools, techniques, and experts that have worked well for me. My goal is to share these with you, along with my own personal experience, in a way that supports, encourages, and inspires. I want The Wateringwell to be refreshing; a pause from stress and worry. Sometimes it may be necessary to share the darker side, so that those who are in the midst of it may stop a while and realize that they are not alone. There are people who care and understand. This week it may be you, next week a friend or colleague. We need to be prepared to face the storms when they arrive. Our ‘wells’ are so easily depleted.

A little of my background
Despite qualifying as a nurse after I left school, I opted to pursue a career in corporate instead. I studied Business Management and Marketing part-time while working in sales for a Pharma company. Even that didn’t quite light my fire and after 19 years, I finally called it quits. I realized my true passion lay in my writing and helping others through life coaching and counseling. This was clearly where my true calling lay.
Doing life on your own isn’t easy and many times I wanted to give up, but God had other plans which I didn’t see at the time. Do we ever? I realize now how valuable those lessons were and as hard as it was, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Romans 5:3-5 says “We rejoice in our sufferings because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.”
Our struggles strengthen our characters and our trust in God. I know that God has used my challenges to mold, grow and develop me in such a way that I may fulfill His calling. He has given me a more compassionate heart so that I can reach out to others in similar situations.
Above all, He has brought me into a deeper relationship with Him, which has become my cornerstone. He will do the same for you. I delight in tomorrow as God continues to open up new doors and opportunities. It is truly my passion for every woman out there-to live fully in the promises God has for her-whatever they may be.
My personal memoir is also due out soon. Before then, there will be loads going on, so keep in touch by joining us on social media or sign up for our newsletter. If you haven’t already, head to our Home Page and read Biblical Wells for Inspiration and Encouragement, to read how the blog got its name.
See you there!
