"What a personal, practical meditation on God's Word! I love this careful, in-depth study of the fruit of the Spirit applied to motherhood. This book would be great to study alone or, better yet, with other women in varying stages of motherhood." -Kristie Anyabwile, wife of a church-planting pastor, mom of three, and a discipler of women
"Timely biblical wisdom and rich devotional theology from an author, colleague, friend (and mom!) I trust. Walking with God in the Season of Motherhood will be a real encouragement to believers in the midst (or on the cusp) of the demanding season of motherhood. And frankly, dads should read and learn from it too." -Ligon Duncan, chancellor and CEO, Reformed Theological Seminary
"This book is like sitting down for an extended mentoring session with an experienced mother who warmly shares her world and her love for the Lord Jesus. Melissa Kruger shows how she has grounded her mothering in Scripture-and encourages others to do the same. Through a series of topics both practical and theological, she keeps her promise to 'walk alongside you as you walk with God in the season of motherhood.'" -Kathleen B. Nielson, director of women's initiatives for the Gospel Coalition and author of Bible Study: Following the Ways of the Word
