I thought I would do something a little different. I am trying to stay offline and do less blogging, but I still want to stay connected to my readers. I have enjoyed sharing ideas for Bible Reading Adventures this past year.
This summer I thought we would explore the Fruit of the Spirit. You can choose from the variety of ideas that I will share here to make your own Bible Reading Adventure. My desire is for you to spend at least 5 days a week reading the Bible to your kids. It could just be one verse a day or a small passage.
I'm excited about what we will learn this summer about the Fruit of the Spirit! Taken from Galatians 5:22-23. This adventure starts June 1 and ends August 31.

I hope that I've given you some good ideas for having a Fruit of the Spirit summer. Some more ideas are to find other verses that address each of the fruits: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
I need to cultivate the Fruit of the Spirit as much as my kids. I pray that you will develop these character qualities and that God will transform your life!
And a great resource just for MOMS is Parenting from the Overflow by Teri Lynne Underwood that goes through each of the Fruit of the Spirit. I got this when it was free on Amazon (I always snag those deals!).
