Biblical Encouragement for this Season of Life


                     I have been so blessed to read numerous books about mothering, numerous books about being a mom, BUT not very many well written books about the combined effort of walking with the Lord in THIS crazy, wonderful, difficult, draining period of Motherhood. This book, Walking with God in the Season of Motherhood written by Melissa Kruger, is such a great resource for you! Not only is it written well, and is easy to follow, but you can tell quickly she truly understands the worries and long days of being a mom.

                     This book is an eleven-week study which is broken down into small tid-bits for the very busy mom. The verses that you will go through are right there in the book, which I found so very helpful especially if I'm reading on the go, or at a doctor's office (Where I seem to spend a lot of time) when I don't have my Bible in front of me. This study is theologically sound and  Kruger goes over the very needed, but rarely heard topics of:

                 Understanding your Purpose- Walking by Faith
                 Knowing God's Word- Walking in Wisdom

                 Letting go of Harshness and Anger- Walking in Patience and Kindness

                Training Hearts through Discipline- Walking in Goodness and Faithfulness

                And many more thought-provoking topics...

                        I love the last two sections. One part is for moms to memorize Scripture and the other is for kids. They are topical verses for kids, like- kindness, truthfulness, compassion, and trust. All the things we want to instill in our children are focused on in this well-thought-out book. If you are a mom struggling with your kids in the day-to-day reality of raising your kids to love the Lord, this book is a great asset to do by yourself or with some friends. It even includes all you need to do it as a study with others at the end! Because this is a"devotional" style book the days are broken down so it is easily manageable for busy moms. Since I have chronic pain, I need that even more! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review!
