Model for a Christian Witness Jan 30, 2007
Have you ever wondered what it was like to be discovered and how life changes overnight! Kim writes her personal story and shares with others her experiences in the glamourous world of modeling. Many people view models, celebrity athletes, and actors as role models. Kim sets us straight about being a true role model! Not only is she humble about telling us what being beautiful is really like and about her fabulous career opportunities many would love to have, she shares her personal conversion to Christ, her Christian values including marriage and raising a family. This book is a wonderful witness to all and especially to those who are seeking a career in modeling or entertainment. Thank you Kim.
Kim writes an excellent book on mental and physical health Jun 14, 2000
Kim Alexis writes a wonderful book that has really made an impact on my life. As Kim tells her life's story she talks about how she has been able to survive the pressures and stress put upon her as a model, a wife and a mother in a crazy immoral world. This book carries Christian themes since religion is her major lifeline, faith is what keeps her strong. In reading this book one feels if Kim can be a morally strong and physically healthy person I can too. Kim shows us the way. This book is more than a beauty book, it is about being whole from the inside out. If you are looking for a book on beauty tips this is not the book for you, however if you want to live a healthier, happier more fulfiling life Kim tells you how and gives numerous examples of how she accomplished it..
Full of contradictions Feb 13, 2000
The book is full of the contradictions. She says be happy with the way you look. Yet she says she starved herself down from a very fit person to get skinny enough to model (and therefore projecting an image for other women to be compared against.) But be happy with yourself! I have a hard time listening to life advice from someone who has had beauty, money, and fame her entire life.
She might well be a nice person. There are probably 10,000 people in my city who are as nice and as moral but nobody pays them to write a book. Just another celebrity worship book.
Pretension on Parade. Oct 9, 1999
This river runs deep and you don't want to smell it. The most pretentious book ever written. Listen to St. Kim pontificate. Then think for a minute. Nobody would publish her book if she didn't look like she did. Nothing in the book indicates otherwise. 213 pages of drivel.
Thoughts of an Industry Icon, Most Encouraging... Jun 12, 1999
Just finished reading the book by Kim Alexis: "A Model for a Better Future", I have nothing but respect for Kim Alexis, she has written a book that will probably be read by many of her peers in the entertainment industry. She shared her faith in a very sincere fashion, not forcing it onto the reader, at the same time she reveles a passion for God, that is very evident in her writing. Coming from someone who has "been there, done that" I found the book to be very candid about Kim's very successful career, all in all a good read.
