Publisher's Summary

Get the kind of makeover that will transform your life!

Best-selling 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.

Not What It Seems To Be

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This book is all about Christian coaching. While I am Christian and hold nothing against the author for using God in all chapters--- I have clients who need more than just a "God v. Satan" sort of explanation. The title "Character Makeover" title should really read "The Christian Character Makeover" to be sure those who'd like something outside of religion, can find it (& not purchase something they're not expecting).

What do you think your next listen will be?

Another self-care / self-improvement book for the clients I have.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Christine Williams?

Not sure.

What character would you cut from Character Makeover?

Not possible--- this is not a fictional book.

Any additional comments?

This is purely spiritual, a book that constantly refers back to the bible, talks about God. Satan, The Holy Spirit, and more. Some cannot comprehend what these concepts mean, therefore not having any impact on their lives with this book.

Disappointed

Too preachy for my taste. If you're looking for a Bible study, this may be the book for you.

Life Changing

This book is centered on Godly principles. If you want your character to be shaped by Godly principles, I can't recommend this book enough.

I have this both in print and in audio. It's helpful to have the printed copy as there are exercises / applications that are better done when you have it in print.
I read the book with 3 other Christian female friends and this is best taken slowly as you put it into application (we took a good 4 months) . It is very applicable in our daily life. The audiobook is good as you can listen to the chapters while driving and it is exactly as if you have a recorded message from your own Christian life coach. Faith comes by hearing , hearing the word of God. all the best.
