Especially geared for women who are reading Character Makeover, the lessons help the group explore deeply the critical concepts in each chapter. Participants are guided in stimulating discussions and group exercises, and then they help each other take action in the areas where they discover they need the most work.

Each week a different television reality show is used as a metaphor to explore the strongholds that keep us from being like Christ. Once you have the "big reveal" and discover which aspect of that stronghold you need to deal with the most, you then look into the Bible for the solutions.  The key to overcoming strongholds is to deepen the eight character qualities of Christlikeness.  On the chart below, see the reality show for each week, and the nature of the "big reveal" that leads to self-discovery and action steps to deepen that character quality in your life.
