Character Makeover: 40 Days with a Life Coach to Create the Best You

BY: Katie Brazelton and Shelley Leith


CHARACTER MAKEOVER


[Brief summary]

Embark on a 40-day journey with a personal life coach to develop Christlike character. A continuation of Katie Brazelton’s bestselling Pathway to Purpose for Women, this book was created for women of all ages who want a character-rejuvenating experience that will inspire them to live out God’s unique purpose for their life.


[Descriptive/catalog copy]

Bestselling author and life coach Katie Brazelton takes readers on a deeply personal, 40-day journey of developing their character. Through her earlier books, some of which have been translated into as many as ten languages, Katie has helped countless women around the world find their specific life mission. Yet, she discovered that many women experience a gap between understanding their purpose and carrying it out. They sabotage God’s best for their lives by succumbing to well-worn patterns of defeat, woundedness, insecurity, unworthiness, or self-centeredness.


To address this gap, Katie teamed up with co-author, Shelley Leith, who spearheaded the writing of the 40 Days of Purpose Campaign for Saddleback Church, in order to focus on eight character traits essential to living a purpose-filled life:
humility, confidence, courage, self-control, patience, contentment, generosity, and perseverance.


Character Makeover
offers eye-opening stories from eight of Brazelton’s Life Purpose Coach® students—women who “fess up” about how they have messed up in the area of character and how it slowed down the completion of their God-ordained destiny. This interactive, practical, and spirited exploration also offers daily prayers and journaling questions which will inspire and encourage women to take incremental steps toward the critical character traits that equip them to leave an impacting legacy and become the women God created them to be.


Like Katie’s other popular books, Pathway to Purpose, Praying for Purpose, and Conversations on Purpose, this book can be used in a small group setting, in a women’s ministry at a church, as well as a one-on-one study.

Dr. Brazelton,

I was so exicted to hear about your new book release! I have read Pathway to Purpose for Women, Conversations on Purpose for Women and Praying for Purpose for Women and have recommended the books to friends. These books have changed my life and view of my purpose and calling in the Kingdom.

I will be first on line at Barnes & Noble to purchase this book on December 7th.

God bless you in all your endeavors.

Hi Katie,

So thankful for this new book. Your books are just what I needed personally and for the women God has put in my path of ministry. I am using all your books in my Image Consulting Business, The True You, and with my small group at church. I am looking forward to the level 2 training in the near future. I am so thankful God led me to you and this ministry! I pray for you continuously.

Hugs!
