Listen to the Heart: Story Meditation on the Fruits of the Spirit

Listen to the Heart: Story Meditation on the Fruits of the Spirit

Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. These are the fruits of the Spirit promised to us in Galatians 5. In this collection of stories about real people, Bobbie Reed leads us to ponder how these fruits have been experienced in the everyday lives of contemporary Christians, and to reflect on how we can nurture these gifts to further our own spiritual growth. The book is divided into nine sections, one for each of the fruits of the Spirit, with several meditations on each of these gifts. The stories have been collected from the author's twenty years of experience leading inspirational seminars and conferences across the country. Listen to the Heart is an excellent resource for small- group study, Christian storytelling, and personal devotions.
