Welcome to my little corner of the internet. My name is Fernie Cosgrove and I love coming alongside women to encourage them to love God more, be firm in their faith and grow through the knowledge of the Word of God. I am the Hispanic Staff Writer at Well-Watered Women, where I write to encourage women and point them to the gospel.
I am also a Licensed Masters Social Worker and work as a full-time social worker in the state of Connecticut. I believe this is my primary mission field. Through the Word of God, he shows us that he has a heart for the orphans, the widows, the outcast and the poor and I believe it’s my great privilege to serve him in this way.
“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” – James 1:27
My husband and I have been married for 7 years by the grace of God. Our marriage has been an adventure and we are passionate to put God first and foremost in our lives. Our life motto is that where God calls us we will go, no matter what it looks like. Always ready for the unexpected.
We are new parents to our son Riley and are newly licensed foster parents. We are so excited for the journey of parenthood and pray we can teach our children to seek the kingdom of God first, above all and with all their hearts, souls and minds.
I am originally from Ciudad Juarez, Mexico and have been living in the U.S. for eleven years. My husband and I see our hometown as the city of the 9-1-5, El Paso, Texas.
I love a good book and I am honored to read and provide book reviews through Crossway Book Review Program.

While we wait, we have hope! Because Jesus died for our sins on the cross, conquered death through his resurrection, and now sits at the throne, we have hope! We have a living hope that can “never perish, spoil or fade” (1 Peter 1:4). And this is why we rejoice! Not because everything is the way we like it or because there are no trials in our lives. No, we rejoice while we wait because our hope – our living hope – is in Jesus! And nothing, absolutely nothing, can take that away from us.”

In the midst of fear and uncertainty, this we know: God is the same, He continues to reign, He is faithful, He is in control, He is good, and He is our God!
