Kelly Minter explores what it means--in real life--to "clothe" ourselves (Col. 3:12) in Christian virtues like forgiveness, joy, patience, compassion, and more.   Colossians 3:12 tells us to "clothe" ourselves in Christian virtues like forgiveness, joy, patience, compassion. But how does that work in real life? Can we really "dress up" in the character of Christ? Kelly Minter says the answer is yes--if we let the Master Designer do the fitting. This relatable book offers insightful Scripture study with real-life stories and simple, down-to-earth explanations of tricky concepts as justification and sanctification--stitching it all together with dry humor and down-to-earth honesty. There are no gimmicks, no guilt trips, just an irresistible invitation for women to enjoy a spiritual makeover--to put on a life that's personally tailored by the One who knows and loves them best.… (més)

While the author doesn't say anything that I haven't hear before, she has a fresh perspective on what it means to "Put On the Character of Christ." She uses a lot of her own experiences as examples and by doing this is very relatable. I really enjoyed and was very much encouraged by this book. (I downloaded this ebook for free from Amazon.) ( )

NCLA Review -The Fitting Room is billed as a book about putting on the character of Christ using clothes as the theme. However, this reviewer was put off by the casual nonsensical chitchat of the author. It reads like a Facebook or Twitter posting. The author describes how she feels, what is going on in her house, the weeds in her front yard—none of which seems necessarily relevant. While the author seems very sincere, perhaps her writing style would be better appreciated in an electronic medium, even one where she could interact with her readers. Two reviewers attempted to finish this book and neither succeeded. Rating: 1 —JD ( )

I'm normally not a non-fiction reader. Oh, I like memoirs and enjoy a good narrative history book (partially because of my major) but overall I don't really like non fiction like some others do. Most of the time it's because the writing is so dry. The topic may be interesting but the author doesn't seem to know how to actually write to keep an audience. They may be knowledgeable and passionate about their topic but actually putting it in words is hard for them to do.

That being said, I really enjoyed reading this book. Minter takes a subject that is very dear to a lot of Christians: self image and how we can work on it in our quest for a deeper relationship with Christ. She uses several passages of scripture to get her points across but it doesn't feel overbearing or repetitive. The main points I walked away with is that we need to stop trying so hard to make things work for us and instead allow Christ to do the work for you. Only then can we have the peace in our lives that we crave so much.

One thing I really enjoyed about Minter's writing is that she's FUNNY. Yes there are serious topics discussed in the book, as well as passages that are supposed to help you think about deeper spiritual issues. But sprinkled throughout the book are Minter's quirky and hilarious comments. These help to revive the reader and also give you a good guffaw while reading. This is one of the reasons why I normally don't read a lot of Christian non fiction. The writers tend to just keep going on and on in a dry monotone. Here, Minter breaks up that repetition and "wakes up" the reader by helping them relate and get back into the story with a quick laugh and her dry humor.

One last thing to say about this book: I was eager to pick it up for a certain reason. Minter's dad is my pastor. I had no idea she was an author or a recording artist when I started attending our church and I didn't discover the connection between the two until earlier this year in fact. It was very interesting to hear about him from her perspective as he has mentioned her in his messages several times. That being said, I'm really glad that I enjoyed and got a lot out of her book. It looks like the book is targeted at women but I think all readers will enjoy her work. ( )

Struggling with self-image? Have you ever wondered what true beauty is? Tired of trying to meet the world's standards of beauty? When you look in the mirror what do you see?

Come learn how God sees you and become the image bearer of the Great Designer. Be clothed in His glory and beauty. Become the woman you have always wanted to be - stunning, beautiful, breath-taking, lovely! Throw out that old wardrobe and exchange it for a heavenly one!

Based on Colossians 2 Kelly Minter encourages readers to clothe themselves in Godly things. Her casual and authentic writing style makes the reader feel as if they are sitting with an old friend. I believe this book would be excellent for a small group bible study. All women struggle with some form of insecurity (though some hid it very well behind a mask of perfection). In the fourteen chapters of this book Kelly addresses the many lies of this world that have convinced us that we must look, dress, and act a certain way to be accepted. Kelly replaces those lies with the Word of God and teaches ladies that we to must clothe ourselves in God's Word.

I highly recommend this book for all women.

Thank you B&B Communications for this review copy.
