Fruit of My Spirit by Deanna Nowadnick

Fruit of My Spirit
Reframing Life in God's Grace
Deanna Nowadnick

Galatians 5:22-23
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control. Against such things there is no law.

Is there a place for you in God's kingdom? Are you wondering how God fits into your own life? What kind of love could God have for me?

Deanna Nowadick takes a look at the fruits of the spirit in Galatians, each fruit chapter by chapter. She puts her own stories and experiences from her childhood to present and shows how God is working out these character traits in her own life. She is witty and fun and you will read this book like you are talking with an old friend. In some ways it can almost be an autobiography, but Deanna just shares the stories that have shaped her life, and the ones she can reflect on as a fruit of the spirit. She would be a fun lady to sit down with over coffee!

I loved reading about her 'story' and how she is now able to see God at work in those area of her life.
Deanna uses quotes from hymns, at the end of each chapter, to bring around the spirit of the Lord in fruit of the spirit. By reframing her past with what God has planned, Deanna encourages us to see that God has always been there and continues to fulfill His promises.

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.
