I have had the blessing lately of being on the wonderful launch team for the Bible Study, “Putting On The Spirit: Ten-Minute Devotions For Busy Moms“, written by Katie Horner.
I am excited about this study for a couple of reasons . . . first and foremost, as my regular readers are well aware, I am happiest when I can tell you that something I am reviewing which uses scripture uses only the Authorized King James Version of the Bible, as that is the ONLY version my family, and my church, uses. In her Bible Study, Katie Horner (who blogs at Paradise Praises)has done just that, which makes me happy, and will also please many of my friends!
Another thing I love about “Putting On The Spirit: Ten-Minute Devotions For Busy Moms” is that it really does work for us busy moms! I absolutely know how very hard it is to find daily time to be in God’s Word, to study and learn. With this book, you really can spend (most of the time) only about ten minutes at a time, and you will find yourself learning in-depth about the fruit of the spirit.
I love how Katie has pointed out that the Bible is not talking about “fruits”, but rather, “fruit” of the spirit. You can’t just pick and choose which ones you will put on, they are all part of the whole fruit . . . “This is not a fruit-basket life where we can pick and choose which part of Christlikeness we want to put on. No, this is more like an orange, where each virtue is a different slice of the orange. You must have all of the slices together and in their places to have a whole, complete orange.”
With a foreword written by well-known speaker Heidi St. John, this little (approximately 49 pages) ebook packs a powerful punch. You’ll spend between 2 to 5 days on each fruit, finishing up with a day devoted to “The Whole Fruit”. This allows you to focus in small bites for more than one day on each fruit of the spirit.

Today only, December 10, 2013, Katie’s book “Putting On The Spirit: Ten-Minute Devotions For Busy Moms” is available FREE on Amazon!
Then, for the next 3 days, it will be available at the price of 99 cents . . .
After which it will be at the regular price of $4.99.
I absolutely feel that even if you don’t get it free, or at the reduced launch price, it is worth the $4.99.
If you (or someone you know) would prefer the Spanish language version, that is also available, and for this week only it costs just 99 cents, and Katie has made available the Spanish language version of the Companion Workbook, as well! :-)
