Just Released ~ Putting on the Spirit (Review & GIVEAWAY)

Tuesday, December 10, 2013

It's been almost 10 years since I started intentionally making daily devotions a part of my normal routine each morning.  Before that it was rather sporadic. One thing that amazed me was how much better my day would go after I'd spent some time with the Lord!    During my Bible time I always read some  Bible passages ( following along on a plan I use) & I also use a devotional to allow me further insight into various passages ( from select authors ~ I am rather picky) .  I was blessed to be part of the launch team of Putting on the Spirit ~ 10 minute devotionals for busy Moms by Katie Hornor. This is a well written & balanced devotional designed especially for busy mothers who want quick, yet quality resource to use in their Bible Study!
Putting on the Spirit  is a month long study of the Fruits of the Spirit (Galations 5:22-23) written by missionary & author Katie Hornor. Available as an ebook, it includes 28 different studies which take approximately 10 minutes each to complete.  Each study looks at a particular fruit of the Spirit & discusses it's definition & relevance.  Numerous questions are included which engage the reader & encourage them to observe their own lives & how they can grow this fruit.  My favourite part of this study is the  Bible references that are  included with each daily study. I always feel a good devotional brings you back to the Bible time & time again.  Katie does this very well in Putting on the Spirit!

Although these are quick studies designed to take just 10 minutes of a busy mothers' day, they are also constructed to challenge the reader & allow them to critique their own lives.  They leave you pondering the content throughout the day. I found this study encouraged me to think practically about how I could cultivate different fruit of the Spirit in my own life. I especially enjoyed using the matching companion study guide that Katie has provided for free download on her website Paradise Praises .  This makes it so easy to use the study, providing somewhere to journal my own thoughts and answers to the question throughout the text.  

Katie is herself a busy mother of 4 precious children (with number 5 due soon)  so she understands the enormous time & other pressures a mother has. She writes simply & thoughtfully to guide the reader to look at this important passage & evaluate their own lives.  This is a great Bible Study & I highly recommend it to all mothers.  

As a launch special Katie is offering her ebook Putting on the Spirit (English version) FREE today, 10th of December (US time zone) to download from Amazon (if you are in Australia, you may need to wait until it clicks over to midnight their time, but this means that for the bulk of the 11/12 it will be free for you due to the time differences)!    For the remaining portion of the week until Friday it will be just 99c.  Katie has also just released Putting on the Spirit in Spanish (Vistiéndose del Espíritu) for Kindle for just 99c this week as well! 
After purchasing the book, don't forget to head to Paradise Praises to download the FREE study workbook that accompanies this.

Katie has very generously proided  me with 3 (YES 3 !!!)  pdf copies (downloads) of  Putting on the Spirit ~ 10 minute Devotionals for Busy Moms ( English version) to GIVEAWAY to my lovely readers here at Sunnyside Farm Fun!

  If you don't already spend intentional time studying the Bible, but would like to, this study is a great way to kick start a New Years Resolution that will truly change your life for the better in 2014!

~Have a wonderful, blessed day friends~
