Walking With God in the Season of Motherhood

A lot of books, blogs, magazines, and Bible study materials are geared toward a specific season of motherhood, which leaves some moms feeling left out of the encouragement loop because they no longer have toddlers, they aren't struggling through the teen years, or they aren't caring for a special needs child. Melissa Kruger has written a Bible study that encompasses all seasons, and does it beautifully. 

Walking With God, an 11-week devotional Bible study, is written in a 5-day format. Each day includes a devotional reading, Bible reading (included in the book), and questions to ponder. The fifth day is a devotional that brings everything together and helps the reader reflect on the week's study. 

More about the book:

From Amazon:

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.

I recommend this book, no matter your season of motherhood. 

5 out of 5 stars.
