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: producing the fruit of the Spirit is impossible in my own strength. In order to live a life that flourishes, we have to plant our roots deeply in the Word of God and abide in Christ. The Spirit tills up the soil of our hearts and the Heavenly Gardener, God our Father, waters us and makes us grow this fruit for His glory. The fruit of the Spirit is not about us; it is about Christ.
This is what Flourish is about. It is about dying to ourselves and our flesh so we can truly live in Christ. It is about clinging to His Word, letting the Holy Spirit water us and make us new each day. It is about abiding in Christ and making Him be main character in our stories.
It is my prayer as we re-release the Flourish line of products that we would be women who flourish in Christ and produce lasting fruit for His praise and glory!
Drum roll please …
The updated and redesigned Flourish Collection is HERE!
Here’s what you’ll find new in the Well-Watered Shop:
This is an 8-week study on the fruit of the Spirit. We’ve completely redesigned this study to be a beautiful full-color study you’ll want to keep forever. In Flourish, you will dig deep and plant seeds of gospel truth as you study the fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5:22–23. Throughout this 8-week study, you will continually look to Jesus as the Creator and Sustainer of your life, to the Father as the Gardener of your soul, and to the Holy Spirit as the faithful guide, keeper, and tiller of the soil of your heart. This study can be done individually or in a group setting. We will be going through the study in our community group starting March 4th! Be sure to purchase before February 22nd to guarantee delivery before the community group study starts.
These verse cards were created to help you cultivate the fruit of the Spirit in your life. This set of 13 cards comes on durable, 4x4 cardstock and has questions on the back of each card. The questions will help you dig into the meaning of each verse and apply it to your life. The cards are the perfect size to tuck around your home anywhere you want reminders to cultivate the fruit of the Spirit. You can hang them on your mirror as you get ready, place them by the sink while you do dishes, tuck them in your car to reference while you wait in traffic, or keep them in your Bible to practice memorizing Scripture during your quiet time.
You know our team loves a good pen! And this one is as happy and colorful as can be. The word FLOURISH is imprinted in three colors to help you remember to flourish through abiding in Christ. We created this pen to serve as a reminder while you’re studying the Bible, taking notes, or jotting an encouraging letter to a friend.
