Very clear and concise book on how the Fruits of the Spirit play out practically in the heart and life of a Godly woman. I loved it because she encourages her reader on to doing better rather than just discouraging the reader for not always doing it in the past. Very encouraging and convicting read.
Best of all, she bases everything she says on Scripture.

Such an amazing book. I recommend this book for every female who has given her Life to God wether it was recent or have done so for years! Elizabeth George provides such detailed insigt on the 9 spirits with also making great biblical reference. This booked helped me to look into my own life to see where changes can be made to better my walk with God. I pray this book is as helpful with someone elses walk as it has been with mines! :-)

Despite the rather irritating style ("And now, dear sisters...") this is an excellent and thought-provoking book about the fruits of the Spirit and how they should be manifest in our lives. The chapter on Experiencing God's Peace was particularly helpful. Definitely a book I shall recommend and possible make a present of to others.

A really good Bible study on the fruit of the spirit from Galations 5:22-23

5 stars

Ms George writes her books as if she was sitting at her table drinking coffee with you and having a nice visit. She uses scripture as a way of guiding her words to help us to understand how we feel, what we do, how we act according to God. She never points fingers at 'you' but includes herself as she writes as we are all human and all have faults. A few other devotional books I've read in the past the author acts so much 'better' than the reader and likes to point fingers etc. But not Ms

Elizabeth George led the readers on a journey through the Fruits of the Spirit. She explained them in sets of three and then she shared scripture that showed Biblical characters exemplifying the fruits, examples of personal stories, and finally how Jesus lived each of these in his daily life. I am keeping this book to reread and reread.

This was a great bible study I did with a close friend. I really like having the questions in the back and the insight she offered on how to grow in the Spirit. We did a chapter per week over the course of about 3 months. But we have 5 kids between us and we weren't able to do it every single week. I loved the emphasis on prayer.
Cynthia  Sanders
I see this as an excellent tool for a Sunday School or Bible Study. In addition, it would serve well for a Christian committed to drawing closer to God by practicing the principles Jesus taught us through His example. In essence, this book challenges us to walk in the light by truly living a Christ-like life. Blessings, Cyndy

A great book reminding me of the power of the Holy Spirit in me to produce fruit that glorifies God and displays His presence, strength and redeeming love in me! I highly recommend this as a personal read and as a book study with friends, which is what I am doing.

A great meditative study on the fruit of the Spirit and how to foster those fruit in your life. A very "applicable" book for a person's walk with God.
