Fruit of the Spirit Book One: Self Control - Review and Giveaway!

Galatians 5:22-23

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

If ever there was a book that hit me square between the eyes it is book one of a new series by Lara Velez titled Fruit of the Spirit.

Book one is Fruit of Self Control and it packs a powerful punch for anyone who has ever struggled with self control in any way be it with anger, food, money, etc...

I have to admit that this is an area of extreme struggle for me in the form of anger and eating... And when the two combine, watch out!

This book really opened my eyes to what God tells us when it comes to such lack of control.  It really made me realize that God is expecting more from us and the world is watching as well.  Also, the book helped me to see just how much of how we react is a choice - really it is all a choice.  We are not forced to lose our self control at any point, rather it is a choice that we make.  We can depend on God or we can choose to let go.

Wow!  I'm telling you, it's a great book - and that is just a snippet of the message!

Lara is officially launching the book on Monday, but I would really like to share it with one of you lucky readers so if you would like to win a pre-release PDF copy of the book, Fruit of Self Control, all I need for you to do is think about the verse written above and which "fruit" you struggle with the most.  Then leave a comment simply stating which one you picked.  You don't have to give details and tell me why - that is totally between you and God, unless you want to share.

I will pick a winner tomorrow evening (April 13) and you will receive your PDF copy via email before the launch date of Monday, April 16, 2012.

It's that easy!

*This post is my opinion. I received Fruit of Self Control as a gift from Lara Velez and decided to review it just because I really like it. I received NO compensation for this post.  The giveaway copy is being generously donated by Mrs. Velez and is for the personal use of the winner, not to be copied or redistributed.

Comments are nice, but rudeness is unacceptable.
