Words to feed the spirit

The fruit

When my daughters say their prayers, they thank the Lord for filling them and surrounding them with Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, Goodness and Self-Control. Although they don't completely understand each Fruit, it's essential that they begin to understand the importance of having these characteristics influence how that they operate daily. The Fruit of the Spirit are ESSENTIAL! I have found that continual acknowledgement allows them to remain relevant in my life. Here I will share thoughts on random fruit and how we can embrace the principles within each of them.

Galatians 5:22-23

22  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23  gentleness and self-control.

About TJ >

I founded Lavelle Publishing in 1997 with the release of my first poetry book, The Desires of A Woman: Poems Celebrating Womanhood. I was 26 years old. I published my second book Sorority Sisters in 1998. Sorority Sisters was picked up by Villard Books, a division of Random House and rereleased in 2000. Over 80,000 copies have been sold. So much has happened in my life since the release of my first books. I am thankful for the twist and turns that has been my journey. My life lessons have made me wiser, more grounded and more secure in who I am. One thing that I have realized is that not only do I love to write, but I like to express my writing through different genres. As you explore my site, you will see what I mean.
