"Bible-based teaching w/humor"
Joyce delivers again with this book. Her style of communicating is clear and down-to-earth dotted with humor. She quotes scripture ofen to support her teaching and draws from her own life experiences. This is a great book.
"Joy is at hand"
I found this to be Joyce Meyer at her best! Use this to further your walk with God.
"Excellent book by a truly inspired person."
Joyce Meyer is, in my view, the most inspired and relevant Christian author alive today. I have read four of her books so far, and I consider each very rewarding, and potentially life-changing. If you want to truly know how to walk closely with God, and live a rich Christian life, read this or any one of Joyce's books. I have also enjoyed "How to Hear from God", "Knowing God Intimately" and "In Pursuit of Patience", all of which are available on Audible. Joyce, if you are reading this, may God bless you, for you have been a blessing from God for me.
The first thing you can do to increase your joy is listen to this book. Joyce has struggled through all the joy-stealers and broken through to joy! It's great to hear someone tell her story in her own words and her own voice. She is real enough to give the rest of us hope. God really does want you to rejoice in Him always and Joyce will help you eradicate the enemy lies that make you miserable. Listen whenever you need a spiritual upper!
"Let it go, for your own sake! - Marvelous"
The honestly with which it is presented.
If you don't want it to grow, (bitterness, unforgiveness, self loathing, envy, greed) stop nursing it. This book is about things that steal your joy and how we let it happen. Joyce states clearly some of our bad habits, why we do them, and how they prevent you from enjoying the true happiness Christ came here to give you. Christ said, "I came so that you could enjoy life." And Joyce is saying the same thing. However Joyce explains how allowing these things to fester in us prevents us from having a close personal relationship with God. She backs it up with sound biblical teachings (yes, I read my bible regularly). Then she tells you how you can start to make positive changes in your life that lead to life long happiness in a Christ filled life.
I also suggest Battlefield of the Mind for those who are serious about applying life changing principles that lead to long lasting happiness. Prayer isn't enough. You have to prune your life of bad habits and get connected to God. I have an amazing life now as a result of applying principles I've read in this and her other books. I can honestly say I have reached a level of peace that I've never felt before, and frankly I want more of it in my life. Good luck to you and God bless.
"A great pick me up!"
Good no nonsense stuff delivered in Joyce's usual style. Had me laughing and also noting adjustments I have to make to my thinking. Great stuff.
"never lets me down"
Joyce Meyers books are always inspiring and helps me to better myself everytimr I read one
"Seven things that steal your joy"
It's really sad when a book echoes like someone reading your personal journal and highlighting what you seriously need to work on like yesterday. It hurt my feelings but I learned a lot about my bad habits and now have a beautiful journey ahead of me as I let God do the driving. Of course I'll be listening to this several times.
Love when she narrates.. She is so funny.. Have the book but never read it due to time issues.. definately worth the money.
"Another Great Joyce Meyer Book!"
It's encouraging and Joyce is the one reading it!
It's her personality and her voice. I just love listening to her. She's great!!
