Tailor Made: Discover the Secret to Who God Created You to Be by Alex Seeley was published on April 24th, 2018 by Thomas Nelson. From an early age Alex Seeley was told she was an accident, but she also carried the weight of feeling stupid. Labels like these, sometimes spoken over us by well-meaning people, can cause us to believe lies about ourselves that make us question why we were born and what our purpose on earth could be. Yet, according to Psalm 139, God designed us in His image with a unique DNA and amazing characteristics! We are loved and created for a purpose that only we can fulfill.
In Tailor Made, Alex helps us recognize our wrong thinking often brought on by generational patterns, insecurities, circumstances, lack of forgiveness, and an inaccurate view of God our Father, and offers to replace them with a new view of who God says we are our personal destiny. It’s time to find your own sense of belonging and the path to becoming the original, authentic version of you that God intended!
About the author: Alex Seeley, born and raised in Australia, spent seventeen years on the pastoral team at a worship movement in Melbourne where she and her husband, Henry, helped pioneer a church that grew to more than ten thousand people. After relocating to Nashville in April 2012, they began opening their home on Tuesday nights for people to worship, encounter God, and build genuine community in a city where much live life “on the road.” In a few months, The Belonging Co. was born and has quickly become known as a place to find freedom. Each week they now reach more than three thousand people across Nashville and thousands online from all over the world.

My thoughts: Tailor Made: Discover the Secret to Who God Created You to Be is a heartfelt inspiring book. Seeley writes from the heart and shares many personal stories that are relatable and real. Seeley lets us into the struggles that plagued her before she learned to silence the lies of the enemy, we see that it’s possible for any of us to find the kind of joy and freedom her life exudes. Tailor Made was a fast paced read for me. I was drawn in from the beginning.
Do you feel bogged down and stuck due to the lies that people tell you? Do you feel like you are not good enough? Seeley does a remarkable job in describing and sharing her own stories to let you know you are not alone. You can break free with practical tools that help to free you to freedom from the insecurities and lies. There is scripture throughout and beautiful prayers at the end of each chapter.
Seeley shares stories of disconnect within the relationship she has with her mother. Through thought, prayer and speaking up for yourself you can overcome all the struggles and lies that bring you down. Generational lies and curses can keep you stuck and trapped in unfulfilling relationships. Sometimes it is best to cut all ties and walk away putting your faith in God.
Tailor Made is an outstanding read that is perfect for anyone who is struggling with insecurities and lies.
