Product Description


Something in us aches for more--more hope, more joy, more freedom. All around us people are dancing to the steps of bigger, better, and faster, and we can easily join in without even realizing it. Before long complaining and comparing accompany our desire for more, yet we're not any closer to filling the ache inside. God offers us another way.

In this study of the Book of Numbers, we'll find a group of people that wandered in the desert for forty years, unable to enter the Promised Land because of their complaining, grumbling, and lack of faith. The New Testament tells us that their story was written to warn us (1 Corinthians 10:6) so that we would not make the same mistakes and suffer the same consequences. God sent His only Son to die to buy our freedom from the sin that leads to discontentment, and we find our own promised land of peace and contentment in the life He gives us.

By exploring Numbers we can come to identify the reasons for our complaining, learn contentment while being authentic about the difficulties of life, accept short-term hardship in light of the greater good of God's ultimate deliverance, recognize the relationship between complaining and worry, and discover how to realign with God's character and promises.

Together we will learn contentment as we discover more of our incredible God who truly is more than enough. Only He can fill that ache inside and help us focus on His provision and purpose in the midst of life's joys and pains.

The participant workbook includes five days of lessons for each week, combining study of Scripture with personal reflection, application, and prayer.

Other components for the Bible study, available separately, include a Leader Guide, DVD with six 20-25 minute sessions, and boxed Leader Kit.

About the Author


Melissa Spoelstra

My name is Melissa Spoelstra. First and foremost I am a Christ-follower. I am madly in love with Jesus and addicted to the study of His Word. This blog contains my musings about what God is teaching me on any given day. I am passionate about knowing Christ and inspiring other women to seek Him by opening our ears to listen to His Spirit, reading His Word curiously, asking questions, exercising good hermeneutics, and clinging tightly to God through the storms of life.

Talking about this stuff is much easier than actually living it out in everyday life. As wife to my awesome church planter husband Sean, and mother to four great kids, Zach(20), Abby(17), Sara(17), and Rachel(14), I am working out my faith on a daily basis. Between sports practices, doctor’s appointments, church stuff, and the minutia of everyday life, I need God’s Word to draw me back to the things of first importance. I hope this blog encourages you to do the same.

Other stuff about me. I have a degree in Bible Theology from Moody Bible Institute. I’ve had articles published in ParentLife, Women’s Spectrum and Just Between Us women’s magazines. I’ve written four womens Bible studies complete with video sessions, leaders guide, and participant books: Jeremiah: Daring to Hope in an Unstable World (2014), Joseph: The Journey to Forgivness (2015), First Corinthians: Living Love When We Disagree (2016), and Numbers: Learning Contentment in a Culture of More (2017). I also wrote Total Family Makeover: 8 practical steps to making disciples at home. I’m following God through every door He opens and pray that all glory in these endeavors is His alone.
