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.

"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

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."Margaret Köstenberger, ThD, adjunct Professor of Womens Studies at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and coauthor of Gods Design for Man and Woman: A Biblical-Theological Survey
