Publisher's Summary

Discover the bottomless, refreshing well of God’s word - and experience a fullness and peace beyond your circumstances.

In the chaos of our everyday, it can be difficult to live out and apply the truths of Scripture. We want more of Jesus, but we find ourselves looking to our own lives and accomplishments for our worth and identity. And while that may buoy us for a time, we’re often left feeling dried up, discouraged, and longing for more.

Gretchen Saffles knows what it’s like to feel overwhelmed and unable to flourish. In The Well-Watered Woman, Gretchen leads us to the well of fullness, the word of freedom, and the way of fruitfulness. She teaches that God’s word will satisfy us for all eternity.

Using Scripture and her own personal story of surrender, Gretchen offers spiritually hungry women tangible tools to not only know Jesus more but to live a life that thoroughly enjoys him, seeks him, and follows him into freedom.

Renewed in Faith

This book changed my life. It made clear to me what I was missing all these years when I lost my way and faith. For almost 25 years I had been following other spiritual paths than the one I was born and grew up in. This book brought me back to my roots and fertilized my soul to remember there is a path to follow that is righteous and true. Truly this book brought me back to Jesus and I have been saved. I started going back to church, meeting in fellowship with other mothers, and bringing faith back to my own family and son. I’ve found a greater peace in the day to day ups and downs and feeling an ever increasing love in my heart. I am so grateful this book was written as it was to door back to being whole.

5-Star Message for Everyone

Though this book is titled The Well Watered Woman, it can easily apply to every one of us on this earth. We all need God to water us & fight the weeds of this life with us.
I rated this book 5 stars in all areas because it is a book I thoroughly enjoyed, couldn’t wait to get back to, will highly recommend to others, & hopefully read again. We should not be without this book on our shelves. It is a definite must-read before we leave this world.

Just what my weary soul needed

This book has been a salve to me unlike anything else. All Gods timing. I laughed, I cried, and my tattered self who thought I was too far gone was given hope through the carefully constructed anecdotes and life that Gretchen shares with her readers. A phenomenally life changing book. Thank you, Gretchen.
