Fruit of the Spirit Devotional and Printables For Young Children

Front cover

I am so very excited to be teaming up with Lauren from Mama’s Learning Corner today to bring you a FREE Fruit of the Spirit devotional and printables for your little ones!

Little children love memorizing Scripture and the Fruit of the Spirit is a great place to start!

Lauren has created some wonderful printables to go along with each lesson as well as a Fruit Chart where you can track each time your child displays a Fruit of the Spirit!

I also recommend you purchase this CD as a supplement to the devotional:

I have owned this CD for many years and we love it!  The songs are beautiful, simple and catchy without adding to or taking away from Scripture.  A perfect fit with this devotional!  {Click here for more information on the CD.}

I hope you enjoy teaching your children the Fruit of the Spirit!

  1. You are truly a blessing….I love reading your blog and have found so much inspiration in your words. This has been on my heart and to do list for a week to start this study with the kids and for us too. I just haven’t been able to get it started and now I have this. Thank you so much for sharing…we will begin tonight!!!!

  2. I checked online and the Scripture Memory Songs CD is available from Sing N Learn dot org for only $6.99. I’ve not ordered from them before but maybe someone else has.

  3. Off topic, but we LOVE the Mighty Acts of God book you recommended. Only thing we can find wrong with it is 3 printing errors, so far! (About 1/4 of the way through it).

  4. I was able to get the devotional but I can’t seem to get the printables the links take me in circles . Your link takes me to Mama’s learning corner and her link takes me back to you. But no printables on either page :( what am i missing?

    • I finally figured it out! the link to the printables was a title that wasn’t highlighted as a link so I didn’t see it the first few times I read through it, ah maybe I need more sleep! Thanks for putting this together, it’s wonderful!

  5. Used this with my preschool faith formation class. The kids and parents loved it. I presented the class with a hat decorated in fruit and the kids got a kick out of that too.

  6. I am doing this with my 2 & 3 year olds & loving it!! They don’t understand everything, but they are getting enough that they are starting to practice the fruits & asking for stickers on their charts when they do. They, of course, remind each other when they aren’t practicing the traits as well. :) Thank you so much for this wonderful resource!!

  7. Hi Lauren thanx for the Fruit of the Spirit Devotional. I just cant seem to find the printable chart and colouring pics – please let me know what I am doing wrong. have clicked on the pdf file but only the devotional comes up and nothing else

  8. We have been doing this study for the last week and it has been amazing! My kids (9 & 7) are really taking to heart the teachings and the meaning of each spiritual fruit. For love, we made a poster from 1 Corinthias 13. It is in our family room, on the wall and it has started some very meaningful conversations.
    Thank you for sharing!!

  11. Thank you for posting this. I’ve been trying to work with my 3 1/2 year old boy about playing nicely. After months of focusing on what NOT to do (hitting, “swiping,” yelling etc.) I really wanted to focus on the positive things he SHOULD be doing. “For as he thinks within himself, so he is.” Proverbs 23:7a CSB Thank you for helping me explain these difficult concepts to my small child.

  12. Thank you so much for this post! I have been overwhelmed lately with the idea of homeschooling. My husband agrees that character building (and biblical foundation) is more important than letters and numbers, especially at this age. I have a 2 1/2 year old, 1 year old and pregnant with #3. I have little brain power or energy. These lessons take near zero preparation, extra resources or deep thinking. Thank you so much! It’s just what I’ve been looking for!

  13. Thank you so much.. this is answered prayer as a Christian mum with 3 children to raise!
    Thank you for you sharing your hard work with me.

  14. Thank you so much for sharing this. It is awesome and I can’t wait to share it with my Pre-K4 class! Blessings to you!

  15. Thanks for this, I was able to download the devotional pages, but when it comes to the link for the printables it takes me to the other gals website and when it say “click on the link to download all the printables in one file, it takes me straight back to your website…a little confused as to how to get the printables for the lessons..thanks!
