Parenting is perhaps the most all-consuming, life-altering role you will ever undertake. Getting your heart ready for what is about to happen is perhaps one of the most important things you can do.
InBumps, Babies and the Gospel, Sarah Dargue will take you through the book of Colossians and help you to see that there is no better preparation for having a baby and beginning the parenting journey, than what we are offered in Christ Himself.
This book is the antenatal class you need above all else—an antenatal class for your heart.
“During a pregnancy and after the birth of a baby, women are frequently overloaded with opportunities to learn and grow in their exciting new role as a mother. With a mountain of baby and parenting strategy books to read, it can become tempting to hit the pause button on reading and studying Scripture. Sarah Dargue’s Bumps, Babies, and the Gospel is like a pre-natal vitamin for the heart, strengthening new and expecting mothers in the good news of the Gospel. Looking to Colossians, women will find there is no substitute for God’s word in these early days of parenting and that only Christ will truly comfort in the middle of this beautiful, new and challenging season.”
— Lindsey Carlson, author of Growing in Godliness
“Many motherhood books do one of two things, either speak to the mother only or speak to motherhood long after her pregnancy has ended. Sarah has written a helpful book that speaks to both parents as they prepare for the arrival of their child, and as they cope with the new reality of parenthood in those early days. By showing us that God’s word is 'living and active' in every season of life, she encourages new parents in the reality of parenthood and the hope provided in Christ. I plan on giving this away at baby showers from now on!”
—Courtney Reissig, author of Teach Me to Feel: Worshiping Through the Psalms in Every Season of Life
"Pregnancy and motherhood are filled with countless joys and blessings, but they’re also seasons that come with new fears, challenges, and uncertainties. Though countless books offer practical advice for healthy pregnancies and caring for babies, few speak to how the hope of the gospel will meet you when the fears arise, the nights are long, and your whole world is suddenly changed. In Bumps, Babies, and the Gospel, Sarah Dargue does just that. Whether you’re praying for children, awaiting the birth of a child, or in the throes of motherhood, Sarah’s words will be a blessing to you – not because she has all the answers, but because she will point you to the One who does.”
—Sarah Walton, author of Together Through the Storms and Hope When It Hurts
“There are many books on parenting, but few on pregnancy. Sarah’s book is the first one I’ve found to helpfully address the to-be parent’s deepest need: the know and love the only Creator, Sustainer, and Goal of Creation. Full of practical wisdom on how to pursue Scripture reading, prayer, and community in the tired, trying newborn days, Bumps, Babies, and the Gospel will equip and nourish you.”
