What Happens When Women Bring Scissors to a Fruit of the Spirit Bible Study? They Grow.

Looking for an innovative women's small group experience that can dramatically enhance your ability to identify and appreciate God's Work in your life? You're holding it! This creative new concept combines 10 thought-provoking devotions by Sherri Harris with a unique opportunity to gain a more personal perspective on the Fruit of the Spirit through scrapbooking.

Through relationship-building sessions you'll gain a richer understanding of how the Holy Spirit grows love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness and self-control within you. After each small group encounter, you'll convert inspirational information into meaningful application with scrapbook activities that form a dramatic, personal testimony of the wondrous ways God is working in your life.

This fresh, dynamic approach to small group Bible study will deepen your relationships with God and other women in your group. Best of all, you'll be energized and encouraged as you see more clearly the ways God is moving in your midst to grow you toward maturity.

Purchase one book for each participant. Each includes:

10 devotions on acid-free paper, perforated for easy tear-out 5 pages of templates, perforated for easy tear-out Idea pages to spark your creativity 10 activity pages 2 sticker pages Leader Guide (Scrapbook not included.)

This versatile project works well with:

Teen-age girls to grandmothers! Single or married women! Church- or community-sponsored groups of any size!

Your time together each week can last anywhere from 90 minutes to 2 hours. And during this time, you'll:

Build intimate friendships Help each other grow closer to God

When you're through with the project, you'll have:

A 20-page devotional scrapbook your family can enjoy again and again! A great coffee table keepsake An heirloom that records your family's spiritual journey for future generations

How It Works: Bible Study. First read the Scripture passage and devotion together. Then answer the discussion questions. This special Bible study encourages deep, intimate, meaningful friendships among women...immediately. You're digging into the Word, and into each other's lives through Scripture, conversation, photos, and by seeing how each person artistically expresses herself.

Scrapbooking. Next, create two scrapbook pages that are centered on the theme of the devotion. Scrapbookers of all ability levels will strengthen their faith with this dynamic Bible study project!

Remove the printed devotion from this book and attach it to your scrapbook page.

Then use the templates from this book to crop your own photos and begin your personalized page!

Share & Pray.

Share your finished scrapbook pages with other group members and tell the stories behind each photo.

Then pray about the discoveries you've made about God and yourself, and pray for each woman in your group.

They made a mistake and I tried and tried to contact them to no avail.

The book gets used up in the process of doing the study, but when you are done, you will have a very uplifting themed scrapbook to enjoy for years to come.

This book will be used this fall at our church for a ladies Bible study group.

This was a very different sort of bible study for me. The format of scrapbooking each week's concept not only allowed us to enjoy the process of scrapbooking, but also encouraged deeper and more personal discussions than the other bible studies I have done.

There are scriptures to read and questions to ponder for each day in the week before the group meets to scrapbook. In addition, there are a number of scrapbooking tools in the book itself, such as templates, titles, and stickers. The book gets used up in the process of doing the study, but when you are done, you will have a very uplifting themed scrapbook to enjoy for years to come.

Our group enjoyed this so much we will be starting another book in this series in the fall. A number of ladies who have seen our books are interested in joining, as well. This study would be good for all christian women, married or single, young or old. It stays very close to scripture, and encourages the participants to do the interpreting themselves.

I bought this book to do a scrapbook bible study with the junior high girls I teach at church. (I have a group of 8 girls, and each girl bought a book, while I provide all the scrapbook supplies for an extra fee.) I love the concept...scrapbooking with specific scriptural emphasis. Faithbooking a spiritual journey. A clear and specific topic for each study. The clear daily list of scriptures to read through the week, with questions to consider. The stencils in the back are fabulous!!! The girls were excited about it, and so was I. However, I'm a little disappointed in the book. I understand it's written for women, not young teens...that's not my problem. I don't like the size of the book...it's awkward. The perforated pages were falling out. It would have been better to forget the perforations, because I had to trim everything anyway to get rid of the perforated bumps along the edges. The scriptures for daily discussion were unusual ones, and the questions often didn't go in the direction I would have expected. The devotional page that was intended to be included in the scrapbook was large, and many of my girls do small scrapbooks, so they didn't get used. I myself chose to do a two page layout of pictures on the topic, and then a separate two page layout to include the huge devotional and a personal prayer. The ideas in the book for scrapbooking were a bit outdated. (Even though I love the stencils, that's a yester-concept, and few trendy scrappers use stencils much.) The stickers don't stick (I had to use additional adhesive.) And as a personal preference, I just didn't care for the look of the stickers. I tend to like more animated, junvenile looking stickers, not quite so lifelike. That's just MY preference.Read more ›

This study is wonderful!!! It is so easy and you don't have to even know the first step with scrapbooking. The materials are great and the Bible study is so refreshing. I would recommend this study to any group that needs a change or something more relaxing.

It can also make a wonderful gift for someone when you are finished.

This book will be used this fall at our church for a ladies Bible study group. The overall layout of the book is great! It gives you everything for your scrapbook pages except the paper and photos. The stickers, templates, and Bible study are put together in a way that even the beginning scrapbooker can follow. Group publishing also has other great scrapbooking material for church women's ministries - check them out!
