In the Bible, the book of Galatians talks about the "fruit of the Spirit," what each believer's actions should be showing in their daily Christian life. Among these fruits are love, joy, and patience. Children's church teacher, Laura Yelvington, brings these attributes to life by using fruit characters as imaginative examples.
There's Larry Love, who helps little Frankie Faith when he falls down. There's Jollie Joy who wants to have a big day on the baseball field ... but what happens when he doesn't? Polley Peace tries to get a friend to forgive her with flowers. Paulie Patience teaches a friend how to stop being so angry and the value of practicing patience.
Each character, each story, will help young children learn the fruits of the Spirit and develop godly morals in their own lives-just like Joy Gentleness who talks about being kind to animals or Goober Goodness who is helpful on the first day of school. God's word is full of Truth. Let's learn, live it, and share with others!
Larry Love Helps Frankie Faith
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. Galatians 5:22& 23
This is Larry Love. He loves to play and have fun with his friends. Today is his first day of school. Larry Love can't wait to go to school to see who is going to be in his class. He is so excited, he starts running to school. While he was running, he saw Frankie Faith.
Laura Yelvington has taught children's church for over fifty years. She taught Chapel Class at Beacon of Hope Christian School for fifteen years. She is now retired and writing her stories to encourage and share with others.
