Review

“My heart and passion for God’s Word has changed my character. This book captures the process to see that same change in your own life.” -- Dr. Gary Smalley

From the Back Cover

Get the kind of makeover that will transform your life!

Bestselling author and life coach Katie Brazelton takes you on a deeply personal forty-day journey of developing your character. Discover how to close the gap between understanding God’s purpose for your life and carrying it out as you put an end to well-worn patterns of defeat, woundedness, insecurity, unworthiness, and self-centeredness.

Teaming up with coauthor Shelley Leith, who is a highly sought-after speaker on strengthening marriages and family, Brazelton focuses on eight character traits essential to living a purpose-filled life: humility, confidence, courage, self-control, patience, contentment, generosity, and perseverance. Step-by-step you’ll experience a complete character makeover—and become the best “you” God intended you to be.

Ideal for small groups, women’s church ministry, and one-on-one study. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
I feel a little bit like I'm cheating by writing a review of the book, "Character Makeover: 40 Days With A Life Coach To Create The Best You" (Zondervan, 2008), by Katie Brazelton and Shelley Leith. First, it is geared towards women. I'm a man. Second, it is laid out in a such a way that a person really ought to spend 40 days with it. I've only had my Advance Reader Copy for 2 days. So, given that I am not of the female persuasion, nor have I had the 40 days to live out the principles discussed in the book, I will give my general impressions.

Generally, I shy away from any product that promises to change a person after so many days or weeks. They tend to be too simplistic, not speaking to the difficulties, interruptions, and disappointments that tend to come with real life. I am even more wary of Christian self-help books, because they tend to garner more of their techniques and bullet points from pop psychology rather than Scripture. This is dangerous in that it retards a person's ability to discern things spiritually.

That being said, I like how much "Character Makeover" relies on Scripture and does not attempt to trivialize the things that people go to. This book isn't about pretending real life doesn't happen. Quite the contrary. Through the use of the stories of various women who have struggled with character issues as they face everyday life, "Character Makeover" keeps its head out of the clouds and its feet firmly planted on the earth. Rather, this book is a resource women can turn to in order to help them change their perspective and temper their reactions when life isn't fair.

Its greatest strength comes from the fact it starts off with the notion that if we wish to develop better character, we must first attend to our relationship with Jesus.

I picked up this book at a bookstore a couple of days ago. I'm going to be completely honest and say that I was looking for a different book, but they didn't have it. The Holy Spirit literally put this book in my hands as I waited for the clerk to check the back room for the book I was looking for. Instead, I ended up buying "Character Makeover" and I know that God hand delivered it to me for this time in my life. I've read lots of self-help books and completed numerous Bible Studies, but this book is different than anything I've encountered before. The daily "exercises" in the book really cause me to change my behavior. The best part is that the book starts with an issue that I have battled time and time again...being HUMBLE! Until I read this book, I really didn't understand what being humble means. Brazleton & Leith give you about 5 different points to think about with respect to humility. I also really enjoy that the authors utilize different formats..."email letters", online assessments, time in scripture, time in prayer. Excellent, excellent book. Enjoy.

Format: Paperback
Through personal stories and candid transparency, Katie Brazelton and co-author Shelley Leith invite you to join them on a spiritual journey that exposes the insecurites in each of us. While designed to be a tool and resource for women's small groups, Katie and Shelley add a personalized touch to the book that gives the reader a feel of walking over to their home for a visit and sitting and chatting with a cup of coffee in their living rooms. This resource is packed full of downloadable mini-talks, self-assessments, and questions for group discussion along with an Internet blog with access to the authors.

Format: Paperback
This is a review of the Generosity chapter in the book, written by Heather Leith, the 14-year-old daughter of one of the co-authors.

"I just read the chapter on Generosity...and it was PHENOMENAL! It was easy to understand. I think women, young adults, and teenagers can all benefit from this book. It was clear and straightforward, and I could totally understand it all! It covered all aspects of Generosity! When I was reading one section, and a question came up in my mind, it was ANSWERED in the next day's reading!! The authors did an amazing job of thinking of the reader and what they would want to read about.

-It was fun and I wanted more after I was done. All the rhyming stuff, quizzes, journals...it kept me interested! A lot of books are just boring and there is tons of unnecessary stuff. But this had lots of fun stuff in every section to keep the reader interested.

-I loved all the verses in it. There was tons of spiritual wisdom and insight in it, and I felt like the authors were talking to me directly."

Basically, Mom, you get an A++++++ from me, and I am SURE everyone else will think the same!

Format: Paperback
I am reading this book knowing that there is not a better makeover than the one that God can give through the 40 days of reading, applying the principles and doing the exercises in this book. Taking hold of the truths found in the scripture references, journaling personal thoughts and prayers, enlisting the help of an accountability partner or coach will give you an experience not just a good read. The assessments and connection to the offerings on the Life Purpose Coaching Center International Website add even more value to the experience. I could visualize each coaching experience as I read "Welcome Back to My Place" on Day 1 of each Character trait. I would recommend Character Makeover for a personal makeover or for an entire group makeover as a book study.
