More About the Author

Kelly lives in Nashville, Tennessee, and serves the Lord passionately both across the U.S. and internationally in a variety of creative roles. An acclaimed author, musician, Bible study creator and teacher, she is passionate to see women impacted by Jesus and His Word.

Growing up outside of Washington, DC, Kelly was raised in a Christian home, the oldest of
four children and daughter of a pastor. Her childhood was seasoned with competitive sports, learning the guitar, singing, and a litany of church activities in the congregation her father founded and still pastors. Like many young women, Kelly dealt with inner struggles - anxiety and depression were a part of her growing-up years. "Those struggles are what drove me to Scripture," Kelly says, "and the catalyst for me to learn for myself who God is." Throughout her high school career, Kelly played basketball competitively, expecting that to be her path into college. But after a scholarship fell through, she began playing music. And God began a new thing.

Kelly moved to Nashville in the summer of 2000 and released her first record with WORD, followed by a subsequent release on a different label, leading to her first #1 Single on the Inspirational Charts, This Is My Offering. Shortly after this success and several cross-country tours her record company folded leaving Kelly to rethink her vocation and ministry. In the middle of an ever-changing music industry and on a tour through Colorado, Kelly met a book publisher who would two years later sign her to her first book deal.

Kelly's first book eventually led to LifeWay approaching her about writing a bible study. Authoring curriculum was a new challenge, but one she quickly fell in love with. Kelly's first three studies include, No Other Gods: Confronting Our Modern Day Idols, followed by Ruth: Loss, Love & Legacy and Nehemiah: A Heart That Can Break. Respected Bible Study teacher and speaker, Beth Moore, chose each of Kelly's resources for three of her widely-reaching online summer studies. Thousands of women participated and were challenged by Kelly's writing and her unique perspective on Scripture.

Kelly now writes, teaches, and sings across the United States and also in other countries. Speaking at multiple conferences and events, as well as four Women of Faith events in 2012, Kelly has become a steady and respected teaching voice to women, particularly when it comes to the Scriptures. She also partners closely with Justice and Mercy International (JMI), a ministry that serves in the Amazon jungle; she especially loves working with the jungle pastors who encourage her through their remarkable faith.

When home, Kelly's days are spent writing, cooking, gardening, enjoying her neighborhood, loving her community, investing in her local church, and walking forward in the things God has for her. She is relevant, palatable, and uncompromising in her teachings from the Bible, and women relate to this.

This book literally changed my life. I went into the bookstore, saw this, and thought "I don't need this book, I know who God is and I don't put anything before Him" HA!... Was I wrong, this book opened my eyes to the little things I do unknowingly that come before God in my life as well as the big things I need to surrender to Him. After reading this book, I wish I could find Kelly Minter and give her a huge HUG... This book has changed me forever, it has got me back aligned with God, and improved the way I see MY God. On top of being a good book, it's also funny, fresh, and honest. IT is as if you're sitting and having girl-talk with your big sister... You definitely should read this!

I was really disappointed with this book. A dear friend of mine recommended it, but we did not realize that she had actually read the Bible study version ("living room series"). Perhaps this author's writing style is more suited to a Bible study.

I gave this book two stars rather than one because there are a few nuggets that shine through, where the author shares of herself and her experience in a way that allows you to glimpse the transforming power that she talks about. From these few examples, I can tell that the she has had a significant experience, but she does not share enough of herself to let us in on that experience. There's not enough to connect with the reader.

The VAST majority of the book is filled with generic, vague allusions to struggles, steps, and recoveries. You get little to no insight about what these struggles actually were, what functional idols she has let go of, what steps she has taken, and HOW she has been transformed. Instead, the overall impression is trite, impersonal, and superficial. While there are a few glimpses, it fails to really express the power that I do believe this author (and many of us who seek God) has experienced and longs to experience.

This is the second book I read by Kelly Minter (the first was Water into Wine) and I absolutely LOVE her! It is appropriate that the Bible study she wrote, with the same title, is part of The Living Room Series, because that is exactly where you feel you are while reading Kelly's books! She shares stories that we can all relate to and the reader is drawn seamlessly to the parallels between Kelly's stories, their own life struggles and the relevance of the Living Word TODAY. I am glad I read the book before I started the Bible study...which I begin today :) I HIGHLY recommend both of Minter's books. You will feel like you are hanging out in your own living room with your favorite girlfriend sharing the intimate details of your spiritual journey, hopes, fears, dreams, and struggles.

Idol worship is not strictly the territory of ancient pagan villages. "No Other Gods: Confronting Our Modern Day Idols" is a look at the human over-pursuit - where the desire becomes too great and rolls over into the arena of worship. A look into a woman's mind who was affected by this frenzy of materialism, "No Other Gods" is a spiritual guide about setting one's life's priorities in the right order. Highly recommended for community library Christian studies collections.

What a challenging step to take, confronting our idols. Kelly really leads us through it though--with laughs and with beautiful jewels of redemptive and gracefilled truth. An awesome read!

The book never really goes anywhere. She starts talking about ideas and beliefs, but never expounds on the thought she starts. It was hard to get through, because after the first few chapters when you realize her writing style, you know anything she brings up will not go anywhere so it feels pointless to continue reading. A friend and I did this as a devotional and we both felt it lacked.

She writes very adequately. I thought her personal stores were to much in some chapters. I will say the biggest thing the Lord showed me about this book is I turn to "bible self help" books instead of my bible and Him. I putting all bible self books down for now:)
