So, pleased to see three great new resources released this year by my wife, Melissa.  And they cover the topics of contentment, identity, and joy.

First, Ligonier ministries just released a new 8-part video series with Melissa on contentment which would be fantastic for Bible studies, women’s groups, or Sunday School classes.

Here’s the summary from Ligonier

Many Christians struggle with comparison, covetousness, and complaining. But the Apostle Paul was content in plenty and in want. What was Paul’s secret, and how do we cultivate contentment in our lives? In Contentment, Melissa Kruger considers what it really means to be content: to place our trust in our good and sovereign

Melissa Kruger’s Blog “Wit’s End” Moves to The Gospel Coalition

Melissa Kruger Interviewed on NBC Charlotte

In prior posts, I have already mentioned my wife’s excellent new book, Walking with God in the Season of Motherhood (Waterbrook, 2015).  As an 11-week Bible study for moms, it is really something unique.  There are many books for moms.  And there are many Bible studies. But, Melissa’s new book combines both together.

I was excited to see that Melissa’s book was highlighted on the NBC morning show here in Charlotte.  Although it is not a Christian program, they asked her to come talk about how to think about being a mom during the summer months when the kids are out of school.  You can watch the clip by clicking …
