What our friends think...

Fruitful Friends has touched the lives of many parents and children across the United States...

If you have purchased the book, or interact in our community, or use any of the children's activities - we'd love to hear from you, too!

"As a parent, I'm always looking for ways to creatively teach my children about their God-given gifts. Yet, it's challenging when kids hear that qualities like patience, honesty, and kindness are learned skills rather than essential qualities that reside within. I love Fruitful Friends because the stories remind us that when we align with Spirit, we begin to live into the inherent qualities that make us whole and perfect. I am also thankful that the authors have  chosen to honor these qualities as fruits of the Spirit, because when we nurture and care for these fruits, they will grow and prosper as nature intended. Thank you for bringing this wonderful resource to the world!"

"[My daughter] Priscilla enjoyed the book! She especially liked the names and thought it was about all the people she knew in our family!! Thank you for creating/illustrating a wonderful book to help children stay on track and show them the values of what God wants us to live by!"

After hearing about it on the "Sonrise Morning Show," we recently purchased two copies of the first "Fruitful Friends" book, one to give as a gift and one to keep. My almost-four-year-old son is already memorizing it! The rhyme is great but the content is even greater, and Mom and Dad (and anyone else who comes over and is asked to read it aloud) will be reminded over and over again about the workings of the Holy Spirit in our lives.

Fruitful Friends: Filled with the Spirit, is a sublime way to share the larger story with children.  In a world of scarcity, these fruitful resources are always abundantly available in Christ.  Sharing God’s love is the fruit we all hunger for more of and Fruitful Friends is a wonderful messenger.  This book is built to last…thank you!
