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 God. God’s love for His people is unchanging, and He is using every detail of our lives to shape and fashion us into the image of Jesus Christ. As we look back to the cross of Christ and look forward to the hope of heaven, we will discover that ultimate contentment is found in Him.
She has treated this theme in a number of places including her book, The Envy of Eve: Finding Contentment in a Covetous World (Christian Focus, 2012).
Second, Melissa edited and contributed to the volume Identity Theft: Reclaiming the Truth of Our Identity in Christ (TGC, 2018). This volume includes essays from a number of fantastic women authors and tackles a really important subject in our modern culture. [Read more…]
