Grow in the fruit of the Spirit through connecting with Jesus

10-week, Christ-centered Fruit of the Spirit lesson plan

Ready for change?

Help your kids grow in character the way Jesus did

Jesus said, "I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing." That means to truly grow in these character traits, we need to be connecting with Christ.

In these 10 lessons, we won't be exploring the fruit as moral values, but as evidence of a life growing in Christ. 

To do that, we'll focus on how Jesus lived out the fruit of the Spirit...and how, as we abide in Christ, the Holy Spirit makes us more like Jesus.

The only other item you'll need in addition to this robust curriculum is a copy of my book, Fruit Full, as the teaching portions are devotions from the book. The book is available anywhere books are sold in paperback and ebook, and you'll only need one copy.

Hi, I'm Christie.

I have spent many years growing in the fruit of the Spirit. Mostly, I've grown in joy, peace, patience, gentleness, and still need to grow a lot in the area of self-control (especially when it comes to cookies).

I am grateful for the continued work of the Holy Spirit in my life, guiding and growing me to be more like Jesus. Because really, that's what the fruit of the Spirit is about, right?

The fruit is not a list of attributes to memorize, or even study verses about. These fruits are the ways we grow to be as we spend our lives abiding with Jesus. We always do it imperfectly, but He does his job perfectly. 

After getting a BSc in Biology, I spent my entire adult working life in Children's Ministries until, a few years ago, God called me to educate my three boys and to run Little Shoots, Deep Roots. If you're looking for books  to help your kids know and love God, they're listed here. 

I don't know about you, but it's in parenting that I've most desperately needed God's fruit to grow in my life. I pray that this curriculum would help you know Christ deeper.

🌱 Growing with you,
