What does the fruit of the Spirit look like in everyday life, and how can we become the people the Holy Spirit calls us to be? 

Author Kristin Elizabeth Couch invites you to explore the fruit of the Spirit through captivating stories of people she’s known: there’s a father who goes missing in a snowstorm; a boss who shouts like a drill sergeant; a neighbour with a refrigerator full of eggs; and Grandpa, who smells of Old Spice!

By combining memorable stories with rich meditations on Scripture, Kristin encourages us to see that God is at work even in life’s mundane moments, and that although our growth may seem slow, in the Spirit’s power we really can become more like Jesus. 

As you reflect on the fruit of the Spirit, you will long for it more deeply, pray for it more fervently, and see afresh how the Spirit is at work in your own life and the lives of others. Put deep roots into God’s word and enjoy bearing more and more of his good fruit.

Blogger; author, Seasons of Sorrow

It is one of God’s greatest promises and one of our foremost encouragements: that he is changing us from the inside out. By the work of his Spirit, he is transforming us so we bear fruit—fruit that displays the goodness and grace of our Savior. That is the subject of this book, which has been written by one of my favorite authors. And as Kristin does on her blog and elsewhere, she not only writes what is true, but she writes it beautifully and compellingly.

Author of 'Say the Right Thing' and 'Extraordinary Hospitality (for Ordinary People)'

Growth in godliness is slow, and it’s easy to become discouraged. In this beautifully written book, Kristin Couch skilfully weaves story and Scripture together to show how God’s Spirit works, gently and patiently, through the day-to-day, seemingly insignificant experiences of life to grow good fruit in his people. Her invitation to slow down and notice this transforming work in your own life will encourage you and fuel your desire to grow more like Jesus.

Wouldn’t you know it! I was praying this morning about more of the fruit of the Spirit showing up in my life. This is how God works: Kristin’s book has been on my desk for weeks. I ‘just happened’ to grab it during a moment when I was trying to catch my breath during a super-busy day. BAM! I couldn’t put it down! The right book at the right time! The other stuff can wait. Deep Roots, Good Fruit is filled with Scripture-saturated encouragement. Kristin has a gift for pairing observation with inspiration. She makes me want to be more like Jesus. Thanks Kristin!
