Fruit of the Spirit

Growing up in the church, I often heard about the fruit of the Spirit and could list them off to you, but I had never gone through each virtue and studied them in light of the gospel. As I wrote this study with my sister, Kara Holmes, God opened my eyes to realize this truth: […]

the cycle of seclusion It’s been a long day. You are exhausted as you pull into your garage and close the door behind you, grateful for a neighborhood that values seclusion as much as you do.

It could be a family member who refuses to crack a smile beneath the scowl on […]

When we are walking alongside the Lord and seeking His will for our lives, the fruit of the Holy Spirit will be present.  One of the fruit that results is joy. Paul mentions joy early on in listing the fruit of the Spirit: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, […]
