About the book:

But the fruits of the spirit are love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.  Galatians 5:22-23

From the time she was born, Lilly was immersed with the aspects of life identified by the fruits of the spirit. She learns patience fishing with her brother and father, love with her family and friends, and joy in the little moments of her life.

But when her mother is diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, she learns the true meaning of longsuffering as she waits patiently for the day when she can see her mother again in heaven.

Throughout her life and well into her old age she encounters all nine fruits of the spirit in her selfless acts of friendship and family. She responds to each situation of life’s test and challenges with an emotional fruit.

In the end she encounters the Holy Spirit which confirms her spiritual walk. As she responds to each test life throws at her, she is able to counter each challenge with emotional fruit and ultimately encounter the Holy Spirit and validate her spiritual walk.

Join Lilly and author Crystal Flanagan on an inspirational journey of love, family, perseverance, and a discovery of what is possible when you are Ten Seconds from Glory.
