Bloom Book Club

by | May 17, 2011 | 5 comments

I’m so excited to be part of the Bloom Book Club this summer with Angie Smith and Jessica Turner. They have chosen The Fitting Room: Putting on the Character of Christ as their summer book. You can find out all the details by clicking here.

I had the best time taping several video segment where we discussed each chapter and brought our real-life thoughts and experiences to the table, always up against the incredible revelation of what the Bible has to say about living out the virtues. If you’d like to join us this summer, we’d be more than thrilled to have you! Please come along for the ride…

    I have read your book and actually adapted a segment of it to our SS lesson on the 3rd Chapter of Colessians.
    Our class did your first 2 study books and I was hoping this book would be in a daily study book format.
    Please do another study book!!

    Hello Kelly!

    We are doing your study No Other Gods in our group now. Thought this quotes was appropriate for Session 3. “The more fake & commercialized the world gets, the more people respond to things that have a real core of truth. I believe that every human being is hardwired to recognize that. Whatever you choose to do with your life, whether it’s running a company or cooking dinner, stand for something you know is true. If there’s a recipe for success, it’s staying real & true.” Mario Batali,Taken from The Best Advice I Ever Got compilled by Katy Couric

    I just shared some over at the Bloom blog, on the latest of your video accompaniments to your book. I truly wanted to share a brief joy with you Kelly, if you are able to read these comments. It's such a testament to how God uses His own to minister to one another. Here is an excerpt of what I wrote there, which I wanted you to see:
    "I'm caught up and I'm so joyful to be doing this study! Previously, in another or our video companion blog posts, I expressed how honored I am to be a recipient of one of the scholarship books for this study. Oh how blessed I am because of (in)courage's program and because of the woman who gave so generously so that people like me could participate.

    Jessica, I am overjoyed for you and the birth of your daughter! I cannot wait to hear updates and hear how you are feeling and how she is doing. Thank you for allowing you "online body of believers" to celebrate with you in these small but glorious ways.

    I'll end with this, my mom has a deep, intertwined, hovering hurt in her life at the hands of someone who is supposed to love her unconditionally. She has been carrying the burden of loss, hurt, anger, confusion, and pain. She functions well and "normally" for the most part, but every once in a while, all the hurt comes back and demands attention. I was able to have a beautiful, unplanned conversation with her about it the other night over the phone. I was able to share so much of what Kelly has been speaking about in her book – and praise the Host of Hosts, she received well! She listened and we spoke back and forth and I could tell the Spirit was blessing her. The next morning I wrote a few quotes for Kelly's book, and my mom said it gave her things to think about. The forgiveness, forgetting and walking away won't come overnight at all, but I'm praising God that she is closer to releasing all of it at the feet of the throne – in the hands of her Healer. Practical ways to give balm to our wounds – the truth of forgiveness. Thank you so much for the tools!"

    Kelly, I thank you for your obedience to write and share God's truth. It is no small thing. It is a gift.

    Love, love, love your Fitting Room!! The last chapter is sooooooooo awesome in how it ties it all together in Christ's love. I drew heart around the virtues in my mind, as we do them all through Christ's love. As we live each day in Christ, it gives us great joy!!! Thank you! We enjoyed a small cozy summer bible club with your book. 🙂
