Book Description: "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control" (Galatians 5: 22-23a NIV). Galatians 5: 22-23 are well-known verses amongst Christians, and yet there is relatively little teaching on this subject. Whilst there is an abundance of literature on the Person of the Holy Spirit and a great emphasis placed on His gifts, especially in charismatic circles, the fruit of the Spirit (equally if not even more important than the gifts) has been somewhat neglected. In Growing in the Fruit of the Holy Spirit, Elena Arnaudova looks at each of the nine fruits of the Spirit, underlining their fundamental importance to us in our Christian development. These simple, down-to-earth, and practical studies are the result of some of the insights and revelations Elena has received through her own devotional times over twenty years as a born-again believer. In reading this book, it is Elena's hope and prayer that you will be blessed, encouraged, and helped to grow into the fully mature character and person God created you to be. Elena Arnaudova was born and grew up in Kent in England. A qualified Secondary School and English Foreign Language teacher, she has taught for a number of years in the UK, as well as in France and Bulgaria. She also spent seven years working as an administrative assistant for a church in Hastings. In 1998 she married Deyan, and in 2007, at nearly forty years of age, she gave birth to a beautiful daughter, Rebeka.

Book Description: The purpose of this book is to present a way that a person may always have improvement in the quality of life through bringing attention to living the characteristics of the "Fruit of the Spirit" established in Galatians 5:22-23. "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law." There are suggested ideas for implementing the traits of the Fruit of the Spirit in daily life. Charts are provided to record progress on this implementation for personal reflection and/or small group discussion. A person leans on faith in moments of crisis. If a person consciously makes the characteristics of the "fruit of the spirit" an ongoing response to all situations in life, he will become stronger in his faith and get the best out of life. There is unlimited power when a person has a faith that results in these qualities. Improvement in a person's life can be outward; that is, seen by others. It can also be experienced by the way a person thinks or psychological improvement in a person's personal outlook on life. This can happen, even if there is limited physical improvement; although many studies support the fact that an optimistic outlook has a definite positive impact on physical healing. Faith implies a positive attitude that believes one will always improve, even if very small, until the day one dies. In summary, every person can continually improve his or her life by living by the qualities of the "Fruit of the Spirit": love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. When you make these qualities a part of everyday life, life becomes the best it can be. This book is an explanation of each characteristic with the challenge and opportunity to implement each as a part of a person's experience. There is also an original oil painting by Dr. Jarvis to represent each characteristic.
