Before reading The Essence of Courage I never ever saw the connection between the fruit of the spirit and Proverbs 31, and certainly not real fruit/essential oils! This has indeed been enlightening in a fun, fragrant, and fruitful way. Definitely made me ponder the connections and thank God for how He so masterfully connects EVERYTHING He does with such intentionality.
Cinnamah-Brosia is real, she’s been tested, she has been blessed by the wisdom and love of her grandmother, who both taught and modeled biblical truths. She shares her own wisdom and love, embodies the Proverbs 31 woman, and is maturing into a Titus 2 woman!

I am on Thanksgiving break this week, and I am visiting my in-laws in Kentucky on their 150 acres of land. It is so beautiful here, and I have treasured my quiet time with my coffee, reading the book and enjoying the beautiful sites around me. I loved the Essence Droplets. Lynn shared a lot of fun activities and great information. During that part of the book, I felt like I was reading an Experimental Devotional. Lynn is an incredibly gifted writer. I’m so grateful that she chose me as one of her early readers.

This book is definitely for those of us who desire to go to a deeper level in our walk with Chirst. How the author intertwines the “essence” of oils with the fruit of the Spirit, and connects Galatians 5 with Proverbs 31 is incredibly amazing! I can’t wait to sit down with Jesus and a group of women and dig into our “locked gardens!”
