Ah,the joys of summer! Warm temperatures, bright sunshine, the smell of mown grass... What could be more perfect? How about a beautifully manicured lawn without weeds — wishful thinking, right?

Just like our lawns, our lives are not perfect. Of course, most followers of Jesus lead a moral life. But do we tell a lie occasionally? Do we gossip? Are we resentful or bitter? proud or impatient? rude or haughty? irritable or closed-minded? envious or jealous? prayerless and apathetic? Do we take God's goodness for granted? etc

In Galatians, the Apostle Paul calls us to live in the Spirit and apart from sin: "Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires." (5:24) This is so God can grow the fruits of the Spirit in sin's place. Could you use a little more love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, etc.?

Just like the weeds in your lawn, you have to spend time with God removing the subtle sins that rob your joy, steal your blessings, and ruin your relationships. This book will help: first by identifying the subtle varieties of sin and then by providing guidance and encouragement on how to confess, repent, and turn from them. We have been blessed to publish this book, and we know you will be blessed by reading it and by overcoming subtle sins!
