How does God make our character more like Christ’s? What is His part, and what is ours?
“Under construction” is the condition of our hearts as children of God. He is the Contractor in charge, and Christ’s likeness is His flawless design. We contribute to the process by cooperating with His work within us and by following the principles and instructions of His word. Then transformation happens.
This Bible study compilation is a construction guide to building godly character and overcoming the hidden problems that sabotage it. It explores how God works in our lives and gives us wisdom to handle such real-life issues as unwanted change, grief, loneliness, financial debt, and difficult people. It shares God’s blueprints for a renovated heart by looking at Jesus’ character, godly people in the Bible, the Fruit of the Spirit, and the Beatitudes. It also discusses how to help our children grow in godly character.
Whether your heart renovation started recently or years ago, this book will encourage you to continue to cooperate with God until the job is done. After all, the goal and the reward is building a heart like His.
A Leader Guide is included for using this book as a 13-week group study. If a shorter time frame is needed, a survey is included to see which topics the group members would like to read and discuss.

Listen to Katy's interview with Cynthia Simmons called Needs: How to Get Your Needs Met, found on Heart of the Matter Radio. This interview talks about two articles in the section on the Beautitudes--"God, I Need You" and "Heed the Ding."
“This book is for those who love God. For those who are zealous in their quest to reflect His wonderful ways.
“We who love God already know that to make a difference in the lives of those who don’t know Him, we need the likeness of the Savior crafted into our lives. Day by day and moment by moment. The authors of Heart Renovation show us how this is done. Their stories teach practical steps to allow God’s ways to become our ways. They teach us how to be like Him.
“This book is a staple for serious study of God’s character. It brought encouragement to me as much as anything I’ve read in a long time.”
