This devotional style bible study is AWESOME for any mom looking to really walk with God during this busy, exhausting, joyful season of motherhood. Working through this book has been an incredible journey. What i LOVE about it, is that the author really brings you right back to what the bible says about living and parenting. She takes us right to the source!!!! She also shares stories from her own journey of motherhood, and it was so fun to read how other moms have trusted God's provision for their daily guidance! I have truly enjoyed this book, and highly recommend it. I know it's one I'll be adding to my "read again" stack.
I keep this book next to me at work to try to read when I get a chance! I love how she inspires the heart of a mom. I might only read a page or 2, but I can always find something encouraging!
There are questions throughout the reading to make you stop and think. The back has mommy verses to memorize, verses to teach your children, and a section of questions if you were doing a bible study with a group!
Walking With God In The Season Of Motherhood: An Eleven Week Devotional Bible Study, written by Melissa B. Kruger, is a publication that centers it's purpose around encouraging a woman's journey into and through motherhood.
Motherhood is sometimes a thankless position. Many mothers do not get the recognition that they deserve, but they continue to express their love with a heartfelt tenderness that can only come from a mother.
During each week of the study,9 there are four days of study that are specific to the concerns of a mother. Each of these studies are backed scripturally with the scriptures present in the study to make it more convenient and easier to get the most out of the studying.
This publication has a wonderful way of bringing its reader into a closer relationship with God. It will make a great gift for a mother of any age, thus it is a recommended purchase for that special mom within your life or any mother seeking to draw closer to God.
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.
