This month, our Instagram journal prompts are about the fruit of the Spirit, as found in Galatians 5:22-23. You can find the first one here. We’re also wanted to share the resources below to help guide you as you reflect and study.
As you read and reflect this month, consider the following questions: As you look at the fruits of the Spirit, which come easy? Which are more difficult? Begin praying for those you find hard. Ask God to show you opportunities each day to put those into action; leaning into the difficult work now will help you resist the urge to dodge those opportunities when they arise in the future.
In this article, Kelly Minter lets us in on a secret about bearing the fruit of the Spirit in our lives. She says, “when I truly believe I’m significant to my Savior, the fruits flow more freely from within me.” We spend a lot of time thinking that we’re responsible for producing the fruit in our lives, but as Kelly beautifully explains in this post, it’s the Holy Spirit within us. As you read, reflect on how significant you are to God and how that helps you bear spiritual fruit in your life.
The She Reads Truth team created an excellent 14-day study on the fruits of the Spirit. It does a great job of helping us see how these fruits are much more than a simple list of characteristics. If you’re looking for a summer study, this is the ticket! It also includes two informative podcast episodes to help you dig a little deeper!
CREATE A BOOK BOX FOR YOUR MENTEES
Consider creating a book box for each of your mentees. Let them know the total cost before the group starts, and then give them each a box of books at your First Meeting. They will be well prepared for a great mentoring season with you!
Hosting your mentoring group doesn’t need to involve cooking an entire meal. A cup of coffee and a simple dessert are often all you need to get the conversation going. The next time you host your mentees, try this delicious strawberry trifle. It’s straightforward to make and sure to be a crowd-pleaser!
Pro Tip: Make the morning of your meeting to give the flavors time to blend and ensure you aren’t rushing as the meeting approaches.
Create safe environments where women can bring life's deepest questions.
Known Collective provides everything you need to implement a mentoring process to help women leave comparison at the door and enter a space where they can be real and engage in conversations that matter.
