Crown Fruit came about after I finally listened to God nudging (and eventually pushing) to use my gifts as a writer to glorify Him in encouraging others. The title “Crown Fruit” is the combination of two scriptures. Proverbs 12:4 says, “An excellent wife is the crown of her husband, but she who shames him is like rotteness in his bones.” Proverbs 4:6-9 states,”They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; it’s leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit”. The fruits of the Spirit are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23). Our fruits are also our God-given gifts. Crown Fruit is the manifestation of Christ in women of God. This blog explores and expresses my thoughts on navigating Christian womanhood as a new mom and recent transplant to New York City (I’m originally from the country, y’all!). This life is scary, yet exciting. I’m constantly circumventing my anxieties, doubts, and fears. But this is when God comes in. He does not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). He is continuously working on me and softening my heart as my grip is strengthened in Him. Hopefully, my experiences serve as encouragement and show that He is always faithful. Of course, this will also be a place to share super cute pics of my son, Coltrane. There will be daily musings, pictures, recipes, and other cool things I may discover. Ultimately, this is all for His glory. I hope you enjoy.
