Life can be tough. Days can be filled with chaos and our human instincts can bring us down. However, I am so thankful for the grace, hope and wisdom God has for us if we seek him.

Abundant Fruit, Cultivating Fruit of the Spirit Through Spiritual Growth is a seven-week study that will encourage you to bear fruit for God’s glory. Take a deeper dive into each aspect of the fruit of the Spirit, as you walk through intentional and practical ways to grow your faith.

Over the course of this study you will:

+Learn why our ability to bear fruit is important for God’s purposes

+Read and reflect on relevant scripture specific to each aspect of the fruit of the Spirit

+Be invited to determine areas of weakness so that you can intentionally allow the Spirit to work in those spaces

+Be encouraged to live out the fruit of the Spirit in daily life through the hope and strength we have in Christ


God desires to meet our worries and hurts with hope and healing so we can all live in the shared abundance and purpose he has for us. Casey reminds us of this truth and, with approachable sincerity, shares her own struggles while inviting us to look closely at relevant scriptures that can strengthen our faith. Through daily contemplative exercises, she caringly guides us to journal, summarize Bible verses, write reflective prayers, and more to reveal our areas needing growth. Join Casey in this seven-week study and learn daily steps to give God room to grow your faith for his purposes so you can glorify him, live more intentionally, and love and serve others well.” —Krista Hewlett, founder of Our Story Magazine

Abundant Fruit pulled me in right away.

This twenty-eight-day devotional directed toward mothers encourages a healthy personal journey of spiritual enlightenment through God. Wayne relates to mothers with universal topics, yet elevates through concise and incisive talk: feelings of joy compared to happiness, finding patience when suffering, and adopting an overall child-like faith—full of innocence, trust, and love. These are core Christian beliefs that St. Paul himself would inspire in others. The author mirrors common traits of the mother—gentleness, patience, kindness, love—creating a devotional reflecting these aspects by filling each day with unique challenges, meditations, and strength-building suggestions. Faith-based, yes, but Wayne’s is an inclusive approach to the motherhood and her impact as center of the family that anyone could relate to and absorb. This will help a mother affirm her role and supply the family with words of inspiration and gentleness, reminding them that their spiritual needs are important to nurture as well as other basic needs.
