Overview Do you long for the excitement the early Christians experienced and want to produce lasting fruit for the Kingdom of God?

Do you long to have Christ's peace, even in the midst of turmoil, so you can impart peace to others?

More About Candy Abbott
When God calls, you either obey or run away. In Candy Abbott's case, the call to write came more than twenty years ago while she was working as an executive secretary at a local community college. After her initial response of, "Who, me? Write a book?," Candy accepted God's call and embarked on a remarkable journey that rivals the adventures Gavin is facing in her first young adult novel. Her non-fiction book Fruitbearer, What Can I Do For You, Lord?, is in its third edition and is blessing others with the story of how she found a personal relationship with the Holy Spirit. The Lord challenged Candy to begin writing the Burnt Swamp Trilogy in 2000. During the seven years it took to produce book one, God not only equipped her with all the tools she needed, but brought her husband, Drew, and many friends and professionals alongside to mentor her through the process. Like Gavin, Candy's encounter with the Holy Spirit reshaped her life. Her fervent prayer is that Gavin's story will entertain and inspire young and old alike to search out truth and make wise choices that lead to an intimate relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ; to confess without apology, "As for me and my household, we shall serve the Lord." Candy is a wife, mother, grandmother, author, publisher, speaker, and conference director. Her inspirational stories appear in numerous anthologies, including Chicken Soup for the Christian Woman's Soul. In her role as founder and director of Delmarva Christian Writers' Fellowship and president of Fruitbearer Publishing LLC, she has earned a respected voice in Christian publishing circles. A CLASServices speaker, Candy's inspirational messages are heard throughout the Delmarva Peninsula and beyond. In addition to serving in the Presbyterian Church as an ordained elder and deacon, she co-founded Sisters in Christ, an inter-denominational women's prayer ministry that has been encouraging believers for more than twenty years. In 2014, the Lord tapped her to found Mothers With a Mission for the purpose of imparting eternal values (visit www.motherswithamission.org).

Buy this book for everyone you know! Jun 9, 2006
"Fruitbearer is one of those books that you will go back to read over and over again, when you are searching for the next move of God in your life. Candy's ability to connect the reader to find their identity in Christ is just a masterpiece. I have recommended and given away many copies of her book for:
1.the person who is looking to find God in a delicate and loving way with no 'religion' being shoved down your throat. 2.for the person who has a new relationship and desires more depth with the Lord so they in turn will be able to touch the hearts of others with the love of Christ. 3. and for the seasoned Christian who is seeking answers for where God is beckoning them to their wonderful 'place called next.'
Personally, I received invaluable inspiration and gems of encouragment to begin writing my second book, which is now going to be a series. But it was 'between the lines' where Candy deposited something in me to be lifechanging. Keep writing Candy!!!"
Candy Abbott Walks Her Talk Jun 7, 2006
Candy Abbott not only shares great messages in her book, she also walks-the-talk. When my wife, Laura, and I asked Candy to help us get our book "Serving Time, Serving Others" published, she agreed, and said that she and The Holy Spirit would be working together. What a pleasure it was working with Candy. We had a book in the hands of our readers only four months after making that commitment. We think so highly of her book that we include Fruitbearer in our back-of-the-room sales wherever we speak.
Great back to faith basics book Feb 10, 2006

Unbelieveable Book Jun 27, 2001
I picked this book up and thumbed through a few pages. With just that I bought 1 copy, then went back and got another for my sister. It's unbelieveable and can't say much more about it. It will change your feelings about your life in Christ and give you encouragement like you won't believe. Candy's writing style is so simple,it's as if you were sitting in a chair listening to her. She is real and so is her approach to life. It's practical and the format at the end of each chapter, challenges us to read and apply God's word to our own life. She's telling us what we need to hear and I plan to buy copies for our next ladies retreat.
Strong Faith and Candid Sharing Feb 2, 1999
Candy Abbott is a superb Storyteller. Her writing style is truly professional. I admire Candy's strong faith and her candid sharing. Her section "Love in a Medicine Cabinet," on page 188, should be prerequisite reading for all loving couples. Spiritually Strong and Inspiring!
