Fruit of My Spirit
Fruit of My Spirit by Deanna Nowadnick
Fruit of My Spirit is a memoir of missteps and misdeeds in which Deanna Nowadnick writes of the hugeness of God’s love and faithfulness. Reframing life in God’s grace, she discovers an indescribable, indefinable, inexplicable love that has encircled her without fail throughout life. Fruit of My Spirit is for anyone who’s ever questioned God’s ability to love and forgive, who’s ever wondered about their place in God’s family or God’s place in theirs. Deanna offers hope for those who dare to question, who secretly wonder, and who fear to ask. Through stories of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control, you will experience the enormity of God, too.
This is the story of how Deanna sees the Fruits of the Spirit in her life. Each chapter is a different Fruit of the Spirit, and stories about how she has seen/experienced that in her life. It was very cool to see how God has worked in her life. God is so faithful and will give us love, joy, peace, patience, etc. if we learn to trust Him and let Him truly meet our needs for us. I enjoyed reading this book, but I personally did not get much out of it. I felt like I was just hearing a friend's life story. I did enjoy hearing about it though!
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
