Coming Soon: The Fruit Of The Spirit

by

Hi friends!

It’s me, Kaitlin, writing to you today! I have the sincere joy of being the Community Coordinator (also known as ‘Keeper of the Shes’) for She Reads Truth. My usual hangouts are in the comments section, social media and email, and occasionally I pop in here to write a few words. Today, I get to switch it up a little bit to tell you about our upcoming reading plans, so prepare yourself because I’m going to use ALL the exclamation points. (!!!)

On Aprill 22 (This Wednesday! Wheee!), we begin a new study, Letters to Timothy. We hope you’ll join us for this 18-day look at the New Testament books of 1&2 Timothy and Paul’s instructions for gospel living to his “true child in the faith”, Timothy.

On May 11th, after 1&2 Timothy, we’ll jump into a 13-day study on The Fruit Of The Spirit!

In addition to training us that the verse says “fruit” and not “fruits” (has anyone else always said it this way?!), this 12-day reading plan is already challenging us to abide in God’s love—to find our nourishment from being grafted into the One True Vine and allow our “fruit” to be not of our own efforts but an outpouring of the Holy Spirit’s work in our hearts.

It’s going to be so good, you guys.

And the Fruit of the Spirit study pack is super cute, too!

The artwork, which we just can’t stop ooh-ing and ahh-ing over, was created by none other than our favorite Emily Lex of Jones Design Company (who is also a She who Reads Truth!). Emily holds a special place in our hearts because she was our very first study pack artist!  You may remember her gorgeous artwork from the Nehemiah, Ruth and Titus plans, and we are giddy to partner with her for this study!

Now, I get to show you a sneak peak of the study materials, which are now LIVE in the shop!

Remember, the study journals are beautiful but optional. As always, content for both plans will be published online and you can follow along at SheReadsTruth.com, the She Reads Truth app, or via email.

We can’t wait to read more of God’s Word together with you!

    I just wanted to let you know, I’m studying abroad in Spain and some girls from Texas, New York, Kansas, Minnesota and myself have all joined a small group now with more than half of us reading and journaling to your daily devotional emails. Thanks so much for blessing our lives, hearts and conversation!

  • I can't tell you how excited I am about this! I just finished compiling a 9 week Fruit of the Spirit unit to teach our 2 – 5 year olds at church. We begin studying that with the kids on May 3rd and now I can encourage their moms to study this at the same time. This is so great!!

  • Ronel Sidney

    I would love this deal but already purchased the Timothy study

    • shereadstruth

      Hi Ronel! Email Laura at [email protected] and she'll take care of you!

      xoxo-Kaitlin

      • lori

        Hi Kaitlin,
        I, too, had already purchased the Timothy study & really wanted the deal on the Fruit of the Spirit study. I emailed Laura about it & she said it was only for the people joining the Timothy study last minute. How can we get the good deals & still get the studies on time? Thanks so much!!!

        • She Reads Truth

          Hi Lori! Great question! That’s the case for this specific offer, but we switch up and offer fun discounts frequently, so chances are we’ll have another great one soon! (If you look in the back of your Timothy journal, there is one for you there! Yay!)

          xoxo-Kaitlin

  • They r super cute!

  • I am so excited to see this study unfold. Lately I have been using the fruit of the spirit to gage my actions. If I am producing this fruit, then I am where the Lord needs me to be. Am I being patient? If not, I need to correct that. Am I being kind? If not, I need to correct that. Etc. It’s been challenging but in the best kind of way! I’m so excited to participate in this study. Thank you!

  • Really wish i could get the packs here in Tanzania

    • shereadstruth

      Hi Nyachi! We do ship internationally! If you have any specific questions about shipping to your location, you're welcome to email Laura at [email protected]. We love having you in our community!

    • shereadstruth

      xoxo-Kaitlin

  • KatSmith1026

    I'm so looking forward to both this study and the one on the letters to Timothy! I will be going through this study with my mother-in-law, it's been a way that we've connected, through some of these studies. Thank you so much! & thank you Kaitlin for all you do for our community!

    • shereadstruth

      Kat, so thrilled you'll be joining us again and excited your mother-in-law will be joining, too! Love to you both!

    I am certainly excited about this study. And I am one who has always said "fruits" of the Spirit. I just googled it and found that using the word fruit and adding S on the end means that you are talking about different types of fruit. So it makes sense that love, joy, peace, etc. are considered FRUIT of the Spirit because they all are of the same thing, the Spirit. Long-suffering doesn't grow on a tree, while goodness is over in the bushes getting its growth on. They are all produced from the same vine, the One True Vine. That's awesome!!
