The Watson Women 😍

Everyone needs a "Michelle" in their life!

I met Michelle almost 40 years ago, shortly after I trusted Christ right out of high school.

She began lovingly discipling me, teaching me what it meant to daily follow Jesus. Somewhere along the way, God knit our hearts together, not just as discipler/disciplee, but as the best of friends.

Which is still true today!

She walks deeply with God, loves people fiercely, gives everything, and then some, to whoever God brings into her path. She knows the Word of God, listens to the Spirit, and loves the Trinity with all of her being.

She's an author, speaker, radio host, worship leader, and professional counselor. For the past ten years she's been leading something called The Abba Project, a "group for courageous dads who are ready to commit to “kicking it up a notch” with their teenage and/or 20-something daughters over the course of a year in her life".

She's written a book for dads called "Dad, Here's What I Really Need from You", and will be releasing her next book for dads in Summer 2020!

Today this wonderful friend took me to the coolest little store in Lake Oswego, called "Glassybaby", to let me find my Christmas gift from her.

I love that it will sit in my living room at home in the Czech Republic, and be a reminder of this dear woman who has had such an impact on my life, and on thousands of others.

And who is behind this amazing woman? Her precious and equally amazing mom, Jan!

Michelle's dad is behind her too...he just wasn't with us for our little shopping trip! 😀

What a sweet and refreshing afternoon, getting to spend it with these two Watson women who mean so much to me!!

  1. Oh my goodness...what gracious and kind words you're saying here about me. Thank you for being the best friend I could ever ask for, one who prays and loves from afar----which has both of us feeling connected at a heart and spirit level always. And not only that, but it's so fun to pick up right where we left off every time we're together, as if no time has passed since the last time.

    One more thing: I LOVE that you can shine a light in your new beautiful candle holder that serves as a reminder that I love you more than words can say AND that you have Jesus' light in you that shines in the darkness. :o)
