If you’ve hung around The Ruffled Mango for awhile, you know about this year’s Spiritual Fruit of the Month Club we’ve had going on from January to September (because there are 9 fruits of the Spirit!). It’s been lovely and helpful and exciting to share these Bible study goals with 60-s0mething ladies. So much so that we’re planning to publish these studies/graphics in an e-book and possibly an actual workbook that you can hold in your hands. 😉 Stay tuned for more information later this year! But if you want to know more about the study now, keep reading…
January is always the season to dream up unrealistic goals for the upcoming year! 😉 But we want more for you (and ourselves) than that. Let’s be real…wouldn’t our year be more God-glorifying and meaningful if we simply committed to studying and practicing those 9 fruits of the Spirit?? Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Those are some godly things to have growing in your life right there. =) The Spiritual Fruit of the Month Bible study can help.
Instead of merely wishing to lose weight, we can gain self-control…losing weight – and other bad habits – in the process.
Instead of vowing to be less angry, we could purposely become more joyful.
In the face of trials, which always come – always – there could be true peace in our hearts instead of automatically self-medicating with shopping or chocolate or Netflix binging.
It’s gonna take purposeful action, but we want to make it easy for you to grab the lessons and run with it. =) That’s why we started this Bible study program for 2017 – and it was as much for *us* as it is for *you.* 😉
We wanted to grow a sense of community, all cultivating beautiful new fruit in our Christian lives. We wanted to help facilitate focused encouragement and accountability. We wanted to help you (and us) become more prepared to teach/reach others with Christ’s message.
This world is ugly. But we can help counter-balance the ugliness with the beauty of Christ truly living in us. We can shine a light from our homes and churches, becoming lighthouses on various hills.
Our marriages, our parenting, our relationships will improve. Most importantly, we can bring more glory to God.
The Spiritual Fruit of the Month Club includes:
*twice-weekly devotionals with journaling prompts/questions
*weekly memory verse printables
*monthly printable scripture writing plans
*monthly themed computer/cell phone wallpaper graphics
