About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I'm addicted to coupons and every penny counts. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your success stories with me as well.

Walking with God in the Season of Motherhood by Melissa Kruger Book Review & Giveaway

I was just telling someone the other day how I feel guilty complaining about Motherhood being difficult when I only have one child.  One child or six children....Motherhood is difficult and there should be no guilt in saying that.  One of the biggest areas I personally struggle with is taking time to read the Bible and pray.  

Walking with God in the Season of Motherhood is an 11 week devotional Bible study.  Melissa Kruger does a great job giving insights that will 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 everyday interactions, and recover from PMS (perfect Mom syndrome).  The 11 weeks are broken down in four days of study geared specifically for Moms.  My favorite part about this book is having the Scripture right inside the book. All the verses she references are written in her book which makes accessing God's word as easy as possible in our busy, daily lives.

One of my favorite chapters was on praying for your child.  So many times I pray for the basic things that I want for Bradley (health, safety, good manners, etc.) but I neglect praying for his heart.  I love how Melissa makes it a priority for reminding us the importance of praying for our children.  She encourages us to find a verse to pray out for your child.  I'm claiming Ephesians 3:16-19 for Bradley.  I want him to grasp how deep and wide the Father's love for him is.  I want him to truly understand God's grace and there is nothing he needs to do to earn it.  It's freely given to him because God loves him so much.

Season of Motherhood is an excellent devotional Bible study that I encourage every Mom to read.  Would you like a chance to win  your own copy?  Simply enter below and a winner will be randomly chosen on Wednesday, April 8th.

  1. So often I am busy serving my children, when I need to do more praying for my children! I can try to teach and instruct them but unless I am praying for the Holy Spirit's guiding hand in their lives, I am spinning my wheels in vain! Love the emphasis on praying for our children!!!!
