A list of the best Bible studies to encourage moms to grow in their understanding of God’s word. These study guides work well within a small group setting or on your own.
Studying your Bible is the best way to deepen your knowledge of God. But the purpose of a bible study isn’t just about being able to remember facts about God.
The purpose is to deepen your faith by having you draw near to God through His Word. When we spend time studying His Word, we read of God’s love and faithfulness. We are reminded of His power and sovereignty. We are moved to worship and prayer as we encounter and think on this things.
As you gain Biblical perspective through studying, the Holy Spirit works within us to refine us for everyday life. The fruits of the Spirit start to grow within us as we nurture them with the very Word of God.
And it’s true that you can absolutely read your Bible without a guided study (the study guide itself is just a tool). But, during busy seasons I have found study guides to be a great way to add structure to my daily quiet time.
So, mama, I hope that you find a helpful tool within this list. Rather you’re a new mom or a seasoned mother, I think there is something for everyone here!

Anchored – She Proves Faithful – Lauren Hlushak
I bought this little study book after I had my second son. Between working full-time, sleepless nights, and have two energetic little boys to care for, I was an overwhelmed, weary mom.
I listen to Lauren’s podcast – She Proves Faithful – and I found this study while browsing her webpage.
Instead of only offering practical tips for anxiety relief, Lauren continually points you to the truths found in scripture, and to the only One who can truly heal our anxious hearts.

The focus of this study is women equipping women – a call to true, biblical discipleship. While this study may not be focused primarily on mothers, becoming a woman who understands the importance of discipleship is crucial.

Mom Set Free – Jeannie Cunnion
A 7-session study that is meant to help redirect you to the freedom with have in God’s sovereignty. I too easily slip back into the mindset of having to get everything completely perfect or life as we know it is going to fall apart. But that’s just not true.
When we focus back on our all-powerful God, who has everything under His control, we are able to breathe and enjoy the parenting journey more than ever.

Flourish Bible Study Series – Lydia Bronwnback
This series of study guides covers (at this time) 6 different books of the Bible. Each book include 10 weeks of sessions that are perfect for using in a women’s group setting.
While all of these study guides are excellent, my personal choices are the studies on 1-2 Peter (Living Hope in a Hard World), Habakkuk (Learning to Live by Faith) and Philippians (Living for Christ).
Armor of God – Priscilla Shirer
It is no secret that the enemy likes to attack every good thing in our life that he sees flourishing for the glory of God. That includes your motherhood. If we are unarmed, that makes his attack all the easier.
But when we are equipped with the spiritual weapons given to us by God – his schemes will always fail.
This study guide focuses on the Armor of God – and not just knowledge of it, but knowledge of how to put it on. You’ll develop an action plan for actively refuting the lies of the enemy. There is also a video component that you can purchase to go along with this study, and I highly encourage it.
Women of the Word – Jen Wilkin
If you want to grow in the knowledge of how to study any book of the Bible, this guide from Jen Wilkin is incredibly helpful.
The subheading of this book is “How to Study the Bible with Both Our Hearts and Minds”. This isn’t a topical study guide. Instead it focuses on equipping women so they can confidently go to the Word of God- with or without a guided study.
The practices you develop in this book will set you on the path for lifelong Biblical literacy. You will be better equipped to understand any passage of scripture. And as you grow in your own Biblical literacy, you will be better equipped to teach your children from the Word!

This is a companion guide to go along with the book version of Lies Women Believe. This study guide will have you dig deeper into the topics discussed in the book in a group setting . Even if that’s just one or two other women.

But instead of just discussing your own opinions on a specific topic, you are encouraged to seek out Gods wisdom in navigating them.
Joshua – Wining the Worry Battle – Barb Roose
Worry and uncertainty is everywhere in motherhood. Maybe it’s just me, but I find myself frequently having to fight the feelings of worry of not doing enough to prepare my children for the world. If you find yourself with these same thoughts, you may find this 6-week study to be helpful.
This study goes through the book of Joshua, following the Israelite people as they prepare to enter the promised land. You’ll study how they didn’t just have faith, but they actively fought the worry battle through faith.
Everyday Theology – Mary Wiley
This 8-session bible study is meant to help you grow in your overall knowledge of Biblical theology. You do this by exploring the essential doctrines of the Christian faith.
Why is this important for motherhood? Simply because what we believe matters and impacts every aspect of our life. That includes how we navigate our roles of mothers in the midst of the mundane moments.
Growing Slow – Journey to Un-Hurrying Your Heart – Jennifer Dukes Lee
This six-session study takes a look at what it means to “grow slow” by looking at God’s very own creation – the land around us. Of course, this is something that my simple living, homesteading self loves. But beyond just my personal passions, I think that a life with slow growth is something that we need to be reminded of in our modern, fast-paced, “do it all now or you’re missing out” culture.
There is also a book version that you can grab to go alongside this study.
What is a Motherhood Bible Study?
That’s a good question. The truth is, there aren’t many studies out there that are titled “Bible Study about Motherhood”.
But even if the title doesn’t specifically say it is related to Christian motherhood, there are still many studies that will help you grow in becoming a godly mother.
Because the truth is, as we grow in reflecting God’s own heart, it reaches every aspect of our life – motherhood included!
So when shopping for studies to help you grow in motherhood, rest assured that all spiritual growth is worth pursuing for the glory of God!
