As I began watching this movie, the music in the movie really resonated with me. I also appreciated how Katrina reconnected with her childhood friend quicker than her sister. Family relationships really take center stage in this movie.
As someone who spent time living around the Amish, I have to say some parts of this movie fail to completely follow how I would expect the Amish or Amish family members who have left completely to behave. However, I did still enjoy this movie. So if you require Amish films to be completely true to the Amish lifestyle, you may want to think about watching this movie.
So if you like Amish movies or movies that look at family relationships or following your dreams, check out this movie.
Check it out for yourself. It will be airing on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries on October 9 at 9pm eastern and October 22 at 7pm eastern.
Have you ever wondered what God’s purpose for you is? Or what exactly God wants for your life? Have you ever asked yourself if what you are doing is where God wants you to be? If you have ever asked any of these questions, you are not alone. Many people, including myself, have questions like these every day.
Seeking Life will dive deep into what God’s purpose is for each of us on earth and how the fruit of the Spirit plays a role. It will go into detail about each fruit of the Spirit and how to obtain each one. All the fruit work together to help us become whole in Jesus Christ. Being fruitful will ultimately show others who God really is to others by how we act and respond to things.
Seeking Life will include:
An in depth explanation of what exactly a purpose is and how the fruit of the Holy Spirit ties into that
Who the Holy Spirit is
A chapter dedicated to each fruit of the Spirit, defining what it is, why we need it, and how to obtain it.
A practical “How To” at the end of each chapter
Evidence on how God communicates to us, and how we communicate to Him
As. a Christian, the Fruits of the Spirit are one of the most meaningful passages in the Bible to me. Of course, it also may have something to do with the fact that I also taught the Fruits of the Spirit to our daughter and a group of girls in a church group.
I appreciate the length of each entry. As a wife, mother, and blogger, I desire to spend time in the Word with God and recognize the importance of doing so. But I often get distracted when I have too many pages to read at one time.
Perhaps another reason I appreciated this book stems from the Scripture passages being shared in the New King James Version of the Bible. This translation resonates with me and directs me to pay attention to what I am reading.
This book includes a passage of Scripture, explanations, and then how to implement the particular fruit in your life. I appreciated the style of writing in this book. I felt like the author did an excellent job of encouraging the reader to draw nearer to God and illustrate His presence in our lives by displaying the fruits as we go through our day-to-day activities.
So if you are looking for a book to help you spend time in God’s Word and particularly in the Fruits of the Spirit, check out this book for yourself.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from CelebrateLit, this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.
About the Author
Hey there! My name is Brianna Holifield and I wrote this book to share what I have learned over the past few years on my journey with God in hopes to help you live a more peaceful and joyful life with Christ.
I became a Christian in 2015. Over time, I went from being filled with anxiety and fear to being filled with the Holy Spirit and it has changed my life completely. I want to share my love for the Lord so more people can know God’s love for us.
A few other quirks about me: I love coffee and tea, I enjoy hiking and being outdoors, I love animals and I have a passion for nutrition.
So that is enough about me. God is our creator, He is our Father, and He loves us. I am His child and a servant of Him and I want to Glorify Him. This is to be more about God and our relationship with Him than about me.
More from Brianna
Have you ever been so at a loss as to what God wanted for your life because everything you thought you knew and everywhere you thought you were headed was so upside down, sideways, and backwards so much that there was nowhere to turn except God Himself?
Well, this is exactly where my life was before I decided to write this book. My life was shaken. Emotionally, I was distressed, sad, and in pain and I felt alone and helpless.
I can recall the day I knew I needed to write this book. January 7th. The night before I stood in my living room listening to worship music as memories and emotions flooded through my mind until I couldn’t take it anymore. I fell to my knees, let go of everything, and started to worship God like I never had before. I completely, totally surrendered myself to Him.
Sometimes, the only way for us to know we absolutely need God and know for a fact He is in control is to be left with nowhere to turn except to Him. And sometimes, only then are we able to truly listen to what God has been trying to tell us all along.
The next morning I got to work early and just prayed and asked God to show me a revelation and a vision of my life and what He wanted me to do with it. I was ready to do His will, not my own. I wrote everything He told me down. In fact, I still have that ripped up, scribbled on envelope I had found in my car to use that day.
One of the things God told me was to write. I remember the still quiet voice in my heart. Me? Write? I had never considered myself a writer. I also had no idea what to even write.
Over the next two months, God started showing me, teaching me, and transforming the way I saw things. Every single thing God taught me was something I desperately needed. By March, I knew what God wanted me to write about. This book is simple yet so foundational to living and walking in Christ. I hope the contents of this book helps everyone who reads it to grow and strengthen their relationship with the Lord and gain a deeper understanding of God’s purpose for each of us, and a better understanding of who the Holy Spirit is.
“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you” (John 14:26, NKJV).
