During the season of motherhood, it's easy to become so consumed with the doing that we forget to reflect and think upon who we are becoming and what we hope to impart to our children. This study focuses on your daily walk with the Lord through the experience of motherhood. By reflecting upon who God is, you can grow into the mother you want to become. During each of the eleven weeks of this Devotional Bible study, you will study a different truth about God and how growing into His image influences your children. As God makes an impact on your life as a mother, that imprint will make an impression on your child.

"Timely biblical wisdom and rich devotional theology from an author, colleague, friend (and mom!) I trust. Walking with God in the Season of Motherhood will be a real encouragement to believers in the midst (or on the cusp) of the demanding season of motherhood. And frankly, dads should read and learn from it too."
Ligon Duncan, chancellor and CEO, Reformed Theological Seminary
"In this interactive study Melissa Kruger takes moms, with all our insecurities and inconsistencies and uncertainties, to Scripture, where we find wisdom, encouragement, instruction, correction, and, best of all, grace."
Nancy Guthrie, author of One Year of Dinner Table Devotions and Discussion Starters
"During the busy days of motherhood, getting into the Bible can be difficult. Walking with God in the Season of Motherhood is a perfect Bible study tool that equips and instructs us from the Word of God with encouragement specifically geared to a mothers heart. Reading Melissa Krugers words will leave you deeply encouraged and challenged without being overwhelmed."
Trillia Newbell, author of Fear and Faith: Finding the Peace Your Heart Craves and United: Captured by Gods Vision for Diversity
"I speak with the authority of a mom who has investigated paths that led nowhere. Moms dont need good advice for choosing the best path based on collaborative best practices. What moms need most is to know and be known by the One who said that He is the way and the truth and the life. This Bible study is Christ centered and thoroughly encouraging; make the most of it by diving into Scripture with some of your friends."
Gloria Furman, author of Glimpses of Grace and Treasuring Christ When Your Hands Are Full
"This book is like sitting down for an extended mentoring session with an experienced mother who warmly shares her world and her love for the Lord Jesus. Melissa Kruger shows how she has grounded her mothering in Scriptureand encourages others to do the same. Through a series of topics both practical and theological, she keeps her promise to walk alongside you as you walk with God in the season of motherhood."
Kathleen B. Nielson, director of womens initiatives for the Gospel Coalition and author of Bible Study: Following the Ways of the Word
"This book will be a lifeline for first-time mothers who are feeling their way in their new calling. But it is equally important for the rest of us mothers and even for grandmothers. Each days study uses substantive scriptures and soul-searching questions to reorient busy mothers toward walking with God in the mundane moments. With a singular focus on the riches of Gods Word, Melissa Kruger gently helps mothers in all circumstances to step beyond the feeding-schooling-vaccinating-diapering wars into something so much bigger: a life defined byand dependent onthe glorious call of Christ."
Megan Hill, writer for Her.meneutics and the Gospel Coalition and an editorial board member for Christianity Today
"Titus 2 calls older women to train younger women to love their children. In this Bible study Melissa Kruger obeys the Titus mandate. But she does more. She gives the church a practical, gospel-focused resource for older women to disciple younger women in the high calling of motherhood."
Susan Hunt, wife of a retired pastor, mother, grandmother, and author of several books for women and children
"Melissa Kruger is a rare find as a friend and mentor to moms! In her devotional Bible study, she walks moms through eleven weeks of daily reflections that will shape a busy moms heart to trust in God. Along the way she shares wisdom and tips from her own experience. Key memory verses, certain to transform hearts, are given for both moms and their children. I warmly recommend this devotional study for a moms personal reading and for older women wanting to guide younger moms."

by Melissa Kruger
If anything reveals the deepest roots of selfishness or impatience in us, it's being a mom. And yet, it's so often during this season of mothering that we grab time with Jesus whenever we can. We're rushed. Our schedule is not our own. We need to be in His Word and we need it to connect with our lives, but we're often tired and overwhelmed. In her new Bible study, Walking with God in the Season of Motherhood, Melissa Kruger writes about how God has used motherhood to do a deep spiritual work in her life. She says, "Before having children, I considered myself to be fairly patient, self-controlled, and kind. I thought motherhood would only amplify these virtues as I poured out love on my children. In reality, motherhood has exposed just how much I need Jesus." Melissa Kruger's book gives moms a Bible study that is applicable and practical in their lives.
There are plenty of parenting books out there that focus on the how-to's and why's and should's and must's of parenting itself. There are plenty of Bible studies out there. This book is a way of combining the two, providing a study on the way God refines us through motherhood. Over eleven weeks, Melissa Kruger takes moms through understanding our purpose, ordering our home, entrusting our child to the Lord, while focusing on virtues such as wisdom, peace, joy, patience, kindness, self-control, etc. She keeps the lessons accessible. There are five days of lessons each week with the Scriptures written out right there in the workbook. The lessons are more encouraging than they are intense or deep Bible study and the fifth day is actually a devotional thought to wrap up the lessons of the week.
In the back, she includes a few helpful resources for moms and moms-groups. For those studying together, there are group discussion questions. She also offers Mom's Verses to Memorize (one for each month) and character traits and verses you could learn together with your kids. Although it's probably most powerful for women with young kids at home, it's not just a study for Mothers of Preschoolers. Melissa tries to extend the lessons out for moms at a variety of stages.
One of the benefits of the book is the way it causes you to see the beauty in the season. When you're knee-deep in laundry, haven't had a good night's sleep in a few years, live in your minivan and clean up bodily fluids all day long, it can be so hard to open your eyes to the glory of God at work around you. But God doesn't meet with us before motherhood and then again when our kids are grown. He's right there with us, using our kids and our homes to draw us close to Him and make us more like Jesus.
