“What label are you wearing?” While it may seem simple or even a bit strange, this question can bring up so many potentially life-changing ideas if we understand the context behind it. “Tailor Made: Discover the Secret to Who God Created You to Be” was written by Alex Seeley and published by Thomas Nelson. It is a wonderful guide to learning how to effectively ask this question, and so many others, in ways that help us really begin to understand who we were created to be, and how to be set free to live out that truth… (Hint: it is NOT who the Enemy says we are, which is often so ingrained into us that we consider his lies to be truth).
In this warm and easy-to-read book, Alex shares vulnerable stories from her childhood as she unpacks tough topics such as insecurities, tragic loss, disappointing circumstances, generational “curses”, unforgiveness, expecting miracles, and so much more. Through it all, she weaves in the allegory of a Master Tailor (God) carefully designing us just-so, for a perfect purpose that He chose for us long ago. Do you know what exactly the term “tailor-made” means? According to the book, the definition is “fashioned to a particular taste, purpose, demand, etc.” or “perfectly meeting a particular purpose.” Isn’t that beautiful? We were tailor-made by God, and He “does not want us to wear any other label but His. In fact, He wants us to be such stunning masterpieces that people will either recognize our Designer’s label or want to know what label we are wearing and how to get it too”.
Each short chapter of this beautifully-written book is filled with questions to ask yourself and quotes to highlight, and is concluded with a brief, powerful and pertinent prayer that will serve as a launching pad into living out the truths spotlighted in the chapter. “Tailor Made” is a special little volume that will unquestionably serve as a catalyst for change and beacon of God’s truth in the lives of women of all ages. I know it does for me.
