Walking with God in the season of Motherhood (biblestudy)

By Melissa B Kruger
I guess I was expecting more of a devotion, but I like the way it is set for each day as a bible study with a devotion for the final day of the week. I love how she gives the verses so you can read them and not have to look in a bible. To me it helps to have it all in one location so I can underline & highlight. After the devotions you have a indepth question or a few to break down the verses you just read to make you truly look into God’s word. It is nice having one geared towards moms. As a mom, she knows our fears, anxiety issues, and really just the things that make us tick. I was drawn to the book after realizing that I was in that other season of motherhood. I’m over having my children. I remember the longing season for the children that might come, the season on newborns and not feeling the done, and now I have a toddler and a 1st grader. I’m there. I am now in the season on doing my best to be the best mom that I can be. She gets that in this devotion. She offers us moms the bible study we need. Now if we could just sit down and read it. This would be a good book for any mom. The one sentence I fell in love with that she uses is, “The hope is to have God impact our own lives in such a way that His imprint on our hearts makes a lasting impression on our children.” Isn’t that the goal for every mom. Here’s a funny from my child this week: When playing, I realized you had a sticker on that said “Made in China.” I laughed and asked was he made in China or America. “Silly Momma. I was made by GOD! Not in America or China!” This should be why we parent! Lead a generation towards God. "I received this book for free from Blogging for Books for this review."
