Running into Water is not just another woman's book; it's an articulate and compelling call to women and mothers from every dialect of life for renewed purpose and hope.

We all desperately need water to sustain our physical lives, just as we need God to sustain our spiritual lives. The idea of women immersed in God transformed through the practice of motherhood, is as much as for who women will be as it is for who the next generation will become. This endeavor demands that mothers not only be heartfelt women, but intellectual ones, engaging the world around them. Women in pursuit of God live lives that are anything but commonplace; their mothering becomes anything but ordinary. To be a woman, mother, and learner of Christ, applying his freedom and teaching to life is much more than good morality or a safe, dull existence; it is a profound resurrection to life as its meant to be.

Angela Blycker invites you to join her on this personal, global, thoughtful, and applicable journey in Running into Water as she explores and interweaves the beliefs and questions about pursuing God, gives evidence of practical implications of this in the lives of women internationally through the bold application of spiritual truths, and presents insightful vision for intentional motherhood.

Despite the continued struggles of women and children, Running into Water shows that their pursuit of God is as powerful as a mighty rushing river, winding in every direction, breaking up dry ground in different ways and in various times, but always with the intent to deliver life now and in the coming generations.

Angela Blycker grew up near the shores of Lake Michigan where her love affair with water and God first began. Educated at Moody Bible Institute with a degree in biblical studies and international missions, Angela has always possessed an affinity for the nations and the work of thoughtful writing and research, serving as a writing consultant to a variety of churches and ministries. She is an advocate for the issues of women and children globally. Angela and her husband Ben, along with their three children, presently make their home in Southwest Florida.
