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 imprant things you can do.
In Bumps, 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.
What others are saying about Bumps, Babies and the Gospel:
"Expectant families are often encouraged to prepare their homes, nurseries, and freezers for the demands of a newborn. Parents, it seems, are not ready until every baby gear, diaper, and frozen dinner is in place. Sarah Dargue wants to add something, not to the end of our baby prep list, but our hearts. She invites growing families to gaze in awe at Christ (the firstborn of creation) and to meet parenthood with the sure hope of his gospel. Sarah’s book helps to provide the heart-level prep mommies and daddies need!”
— Nana Dolce, blogger and writer at motherhoodsanctity.com
“I wish this book had existed before I had my babies! Taking time out from all the physical preparations for parenthood and letting the Bible truths that Sarah explains so well prepare your hearts will definitely be time well spent.”
— Kirsty Patterson, Pastor’s wife, mum of four and midwife
“Through the sleepless nights and the foggy haze of nappy-filled days, it is easy to neglect the vital priorities of Christian parenthood: keeping our hearts well-fed from God’s Word, with our eyes fixed on the Lord Jesus. Taking the reader through the New Testament letter to the Colossians, this delightful book seeks to bless and encourage prospective and new parents to ‘learn what it looks like to glorify Christ in the ordinary, everyday moments of parenthood.’ With creative suggestions about feeding on a little bit of God’s Word each day, as well as thoughtful questions at the end of each chapter, this will be a real help to all prospective and new parents. We wish it had been written 30 years ago as we embarked upon the world of bumps and babies!”
— Jonathan and Sandra Prime, Christchurch, Market Harborough
“As followers of Christ, we know in Whom we expect when expecting. Our greatest hope is not in our babies, but in the One who is knitting and transforming us into Christ’s likeness. Through this book, Sarah Dargue lifts our eyes away from ourselves and helps us to meditate on Christ Jesus in our season of waiting. For in Him we live, and move, and have our being.”
— Irene Sun, author of God Counts: Numbers in his Word and His World
“This book is a must-read for any expectant Christian parent. It does a fantastic job of heart preparation for the huge, daunting and beautiful task ahead. As a parent herself, Sarah understands the unique challenges that the transition to parenthood affords; and in the midst of that, she encourages the reader to gaze on Jesus. I wish this book existed when I was pregnant with my first! It will be my go-to gift for any friends who announce their own pregnancies in the years to come.”
— Cathy Thomson, blogger at gospelcentredparenting.com
“In Bumps, Babies, and the Gospel, Sarah Dargue provides a remarkably beneficial resource for parents anticipating the birth of a child. Dargue skilfully applies rich gospel truths from the book of Colossians to the particular challenges of caring for a newborn. She demonstrates a keen awareness of the heart struggles so common to these early months of a baby’s life (exhaustion, comparison, loss of identity, hormonal changes, among others), and writes with sensitivity and realism about using these struggles to drive us to the cross of Christ and His inexhaustible resources. Couples are encouraged to read, pray, and answer questions together, which will certainly draw husbands and wives together. I recommend this book highly, and look forward to giving copies to expectant parents.”
— Jodi Ware, Southern Seminary Wives Institute, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
“I wish we’d had (and been wise enough to soak in) this beautiful little book when I was pregnant with my first, but honestly, Sarah Dargue’s content is just as true and convicting and encouraging for a parent of older children. In laying the hard and joyful realities of pregnancy and parenting on top of the gospel truth in Colossians, Dargue finds dozens of ways to offer real hope and solid advice for parents in today’s Instagram, Amazon Prime, Disney Plus world.”
— Sarah Eekhoff Zylstra, senior writer for The Gospel Coalition
