I long for my life to be one which bears the unmistakable mark of a Christian. When people interact with me, I want them to see Christ and His characteristics in me.
But when the baby is crying, my oldest is trying to tell me every detail of his very important dream, my toddler is…well, being a toddler, I’ve lost track of time and we need to be in the car, like NOW, but no one seems to carry the same urgency that I have, and, oh my gosh, I’m still in my pajamas…well, I’m not sure there is much evidence of Christ in me in those moments.
Why is it so hard to do what I desire to do?
If you know this familiar struggle then I’m glad you are reading this. Not (only) because it makes me feel less alone, but because this Fall we are going to take a journey through the Bible to find out how we can have the abiding fruit of Christ in our lives.
I’ve had to exercise great self control to not just jump into this “Fruits of the Spirit” Bible study as soon as I got it from Katie and Lara. (Well, I guess that’s one fruit in my corner…) I’m so excited to get up tomorrow morning and study alongside all of you! Feel free to share what you’re learning in your groups.
Katie and Lara also have a new ebook that just released yesterday. It’s called Savoring Living Water and it’s all about learning to study the Bible and have an effective quiet time. Whereas the MYM ebook talks about how to get up and also mentions exercise and planning, the SLW ebook is ALL about your quiet time. Good, good stuff.

(Note: This study is optional. You don’t have to do it just because you’re doing the Challenge. Likewise, you don’t have to be in the Challenge to do the Bible Study.)
Ok, without further ado, here is the Maximize Your Mornings Fall Session Bible Study.
Also? Did I really just use whereas and ado in one post? Somebody’s watched Pride and Prejudice o-n-e too many times…
