The Confident Woman - Start Today Living Boldly and Without Fear By Joyce Meyer

THE CONFIDENT WOMAN Start Today Living Boldly and Without Fear
By Joyce Meyer

About The Book:
What keeps women from being their best? Joyce has been helping women better themselves by helping identify emotional barriers and physical, mental, and spiritual obstacles in their lives for years. Now she provides another answer-confidence.

Our society has an insecurity epidemic, women in particular. Compensating by pretending to be secure-a common response-only leads to feelings of shame. Lack of self-confidence causes great difficulty in relationships of all kinds, and in marriage instances can even lead to divorce.

In THE CONFIDENT WOMAN, Joyce explores the seven characteristics of a woman with confidence, which include a woman who knows she is loved, who refuses to live in fear, and who does not live by comparisons. Joyce explains that confidence stems from being positive in your actions and living honestly, but most importantly from having faith, in God and in ourselves.

About The Author:
Joyce Meyer is one of the world's leading practical Bible teachers. A #1 New York Times bestselling author, she has written more than eighty inspirational books, including Never Give Up!, The Secret to True Happiness, 100 Ways to Simplify Your Life, the entire Battlefield of the Mind family of books, her first venture into fiction with The Penny, and many others. She has also released thousands of audio teachings, as well as a complete video library. Joyce's Enjoying Everyday Life radio and television programs are broadcast around the world, and she travels extensively conducting conferences.

My Thoughts: 

~ "Confidence allows us to face life with boldness, openness, and honesty. It enables us to live wothout worry and to feel safe. It enables us to live authentically."

This quote from THE CONFIDENT WOMAN touches on a point that is so essential to everyone, especially women. To thrive, in what is indisputably a man's world, each woman must be free of fear, free to discover and grow into the authentic person she was meant to be. Author Joyce Meyer gives women many sound, reasonable, and doable suggestions as to how to get there. While I don't agree with all of the author's spiritual conclusions, I do agree that God loves, appreciates, and wants women to find their rightful place in his arrangement. And that, without question, this place is one of  dignity and happiness. You'll enjoy the author's voice, her enthusiasm, humor, and sometimes, her slap-in-the-face wake up calls.
