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.Read more ›
"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!

Excellent book/study. Really allows as much or as little depth as you have time for or would like. I don't really like a lot of bible studies because of flawed theology, and... Read morePublished 5 months ago by Lora M LeBreck
I needed this book - thought provoking. It's been more than 40 days but my choice to go slow. And I keep going back to re-read past chapters. Love it!Published 8 months ago by Amazon Customer
Very helpful book. Going through each lesson in a week might be too much. There's a lot to think and read. So much one can talk about with friends. I'd suggest taking it slow.Published 12 months ago by Amazon Customer
