Book Spotlight & Giveaway - Outrageously Fruitful by Maria Morgan

Maria is not only a children's book author, but also a devotional writer. Below is a blurb on her newest offering, Outrageously Fruitful.

Society's message is clear: live for yourself. God's message is revolutionary: live for Him and others. This sounds radical, right? We all want love, joy, and peace to saturate our lives. But the Holy Spirit's plan begs us to look beyond our own little world and see His bigger picture.

So how do we win the battle against selfishness? Outrageously Fruitful addresses this question and more. This 10-week study is made up of a series of brief daily lessons that encourage an honest look at current behavior and provide a biblical foundation to rekindle faith and put it into action.

Maria I. Morgan explores the characteristics the Spirit longs to cultivate within us. A fresh perspective is given of each characteristic, disarming some of today's popular misconceptions: *Love is a feeling *Circumstances determine joy *Absence of conflict is the key to peace *Why be long suffering? Take the easy way out *Meekness is the same thing as weakness *Temperance is outdated: if it feels good do it Let go and let God make your life outrageously fruitful!

Giveaway Details: Maria will be giving away one copy of "Outrageously Fruitful" (print) to one commenter. To be eligible, you must leave your email address and be a resident of the U.S. Void where prohibited. 

Disclaimer: No payment was made to this blogger for featuring the author and her book.

I have always enjoyed reading Maria's blog. Congratulations to her on the publication of this new study, and one so necessary in today's world where success is defined often by how much we accumulate, how many 'friends' we have on social media, and our appearance.

Very interesting. I think we, as Christians, can get subtly muddled by those popular misconceptions, even though we might intellectually accept what the Bible says. SusanJClark72@comcast.net
