Do It Afraid

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

We all deal with fear, every single one of us! Fear not only causes us worry, doubt, dread, insecurity, and stress, it often prevents us from moving forward to where God is leading us. Whether you’re dealing with little fears or big fears, If you’re tired of living in fear or not sure why certain things or circumstances cause you to react in fear, Joyce Meyer’s new book, Do It Afraid: Embracing Courage in the Face of Fear, (FaithWords, hardcover) is an extremely worthwhile and helpful book to read. In her practical, straightforward way, she shares so many nuggets of wisdom that can help you face your fears and gain freedom from them.

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.
