Book Review: Powerful Thinking

I received a review copy of this book; all opinions expressed are mine.

“Are you completely satisfied with every aspect of your life? Or are there areas you would like to change?…The key to changing your life is changing your thinking,” writes Joyce Meyer in the introduction of her new book, Powerful Thinking (FaithWords, hardcover). She adds, “As you develop thought patterns (mindsets) that agree with God’s Word, everything about your existence will begin to improve.” She goes on to explain that your thinking can work for you or against you as you journey through life. It can make the difference between fully experiencing God’s plan for your life and living the dream He has planted in you, or living a life filled with frustration and defeat.

Book Review: How to Age Without Getting Old

I received a review copy of this book; all opinions expressed are mine.

“I firmly believe that we should enjoy all the years that God gives us,” writes Joyce Meyer in her new book, How to Age Without Getting Old (hardcover, FaithWords). In her conversational, easy-to-read style, she shares practical advice, inspiration, encouragement, and experiences from her own life and the lives of others. She asks her readers this question at the beginning of the book: “Will you simply let yourself ‘get old,’ or will you age gracefully, purposefully, and wisely, allowing God to use you in every season of your life? If you will, I believe your latter years can be absolutely wonderful.”

Throughout her book, Meyer addresses both practical and spiritual topics in her chapters: Learning from Experience, Slowing Down the Aging Process, Finding Your New Normal, A Healthy Understanding of Stress, Staying Strong Spiritually, Aging Gracefully, Discerning God’s Will, Learning How to Rest, Fear of the Unknown, Listen to Your Body, and It’s Never Too Late to Do Something Great.

Habits of a Godly Woman

I received a review copy of this book; all opinions expressed are mine.

“If you change your habits, you’ll change your life.” Thats how Joyce Meyer begins the introduction of her new book, Habits of a Godly Woman (FaithWords, hardcover). And who wouldn’t want to change their life for the better? Habits make up a big part of our daily life—what we think, say, do, and spend time and money on—even our attitudes, emotions, and reactions. We all have habits we’d like to break, and Meyer says that the good news is, habits can always be changed: “Every day you live, you have a chance to develop a new habit or to break a bad one and replace it with a good one.”

In this book of 25 short, easy-to-read chapters (you could use it as a devotional and read a chapter a day or just read it as you have time), Meyer explores many of the most important habits of a godly woman, whom she describes as being peaceful and confident, desiring to continue to grow in her relationship with God, and wanting be a blessing to others. Each chapter focuses on a godly habit and includes some Scripture references related to that habit (Meyer calls them “Habit Builders”). Some of the habits she writes about developing include the habits of Prayer, Gratitude, Positive Thoughts and Words, Generosity, Contentment, Confidence, Releasing Worries, and Excellence—and she includes lots of wisdom, practical advice, and examples from her own life that offer encouragement and hope.
