Walking with God

Walking with God in the Season of Motherhood
Melissa B. Kruger

Learn how God’s imprint on your heart can make a lasting impression on your children.

Being a mom usually means being busy. Really busy. Whether you’re zipping from your children’s piano lessons to their next ballgame or nursing a baby while comforting a toddler, life is brimming with activities. 

Yet one encounter can help shape every moment: time in the Word with Jesus. In Walking with God in the Season of Motherhood, you’ll learn how to nourish your own heart, mind, and soul with the wisdom you need to become the mother you long to be. 

As you spend time with God through this eleven-week Bible study, you’ll gain life-shaping insights to help you…
 ·         Understand and pursue your purpose as a mother
 ·         Live out your true priorities
 ·         Entrust your child to God
 ·         Bear the fruit of the Spirit in your everyday interactions
 ·         Recover from Perfect Mom Syndrome (PMS)

Each week offers four days of study geared specifically to a mother’s concerns, with the Bible passages already printed out for your convenience. The fifth day is a warm-hearted devotional reading to help you reflect on and apply the truths you’ve learned.

As your relationship with God deepens through prayer and studying His Word, you’ll discover how His imprint on your heart can make a lasting impression on your children.

My thoughts:

“In the beauty of God’s design, He is in the process of parenting us as we parent our children.”

What a wonderful devotional!  Walking with God in the Season of Motherhood is an eleven-week devotional Bible study that will encourage you as a mother and as a child of God. 

In the busy days of motherhood, we often fail to set aside time for our own spiritual growth and strengthening.  This book is specifically tailored for mothers and each week offers four days of Scripture study and a fifth day of reflection and application.  I really enjoyed each lesson and loved that each Bible passage was included in the book for convenience.  I also enjoyed Kruger’s own stories of motherhood and words of encouragement.  Other helpful resources include verses for memorization for both mothers and children, as well as a study guide to use in a group setting. 

I loved Walking with God in the Season of Motherhood!  Melissa Kruger has written an encouraging study that I will use again and again. 

“Daily time in the Word and in prayer provides the nourishment our souls need as we care for our families.  The specific application for different ages may vary, but each of us needs wisdom, prayer, patience, kindness, and love as we raise our children.  We never graduate from our need of His grace.”

I received a complimentary copy of this book through Blogging for Books and appreciate the opportunity to offer my honest opinion.
