More About the Author



Joyce Meyer is one of the world's leading practical Bible teachers. A New York Times bestselling author, her books have helped millions of people find hope and restoration through Jesus Christ.

Through Joyce Meyer Ministries, she teaches on hundreds of subjects, has authored over seventy books and conducts close to fifteen conferences per year. To date, more than 12 million of her books have been distributed worldwide, and in 2007 over 3.2 million copies were sold. Joyce also has a television and radio program, Enjoying Everyday Life®, that is broadcast worldwide to a potential audience of 3 billion people. In addition, her programs can be accessed around the clock at www.joycemeyer.org.

Having suffered sexual abuse as a child and the pain of an emotionally abusive first marriage, Joyce discovered the freedom to live victoriously by applying God's Word to her life and in turn desires to help others do the same. From her battle with breast cancer to the struggles of everyday life, she speaks openly and practically about her experiences so others can apply what she has learned to their lives.

Over the years, God has provided Joyce with many opportunities to share her testimony and the life-changing message of the Gospel. In fact, Time magazine selected her as one of the most influential evangelical leaders in America. She is an incredible testimony of the dynamic, redeeming work of Jesus Christ. She believes and teaches that regardless of a person's background or past mistakes, God has a place for them and can help them on their path to enjoying everyday life.

Joyce holds an earned PhD in theology from Life Christian University in Tampa, Florida; an honorary doctorate in divinity from Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma; and an honorary doctorate in sacred theology from Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Arizona. Joyce and her husband, Dave, have been married for over forty years, and they are the parents of four grown children. Dave and Joyce Meyer make their home in St. Louis, Missouri.

I was bought this book for mother's day by my husband - Approval addiction I thought? No, I don't have one of those. But hey, because I didn't want to upset him (approval addict that I actually am) I read it. Wow, this book is great. I realised that for ages I have been living in fear, when I should be living in freedom.

If you live your life trying to please other people - you need ot read this book. It tells you all about the only One you need to please - and contrary to secular teachings - it isn't yourself!

I had never heard of Joyce Meyer before this book, but I am glad I found her now and have shared this book with many of my friends (Christian and non Christian alike)Not found anyone who didn't like it - all said it was good to have "life" examples rather than just theory, the non Christians thought it was a good insight into what Christians believe. All have recognised someone they know in the pages of this book in addition to some of their own personal traits and have found it changed their life in some way. I can see why the word "addiction" is in the title but don't be put off by it

This book has got to be the most challenging book ive read. Having always been a people pleaser, this book has the ability to set you free, no matter how long you have struggled in this area. This book can be a challenge to read, but push through,beacause the truth will set you free, and you will see a greater freedom and deeper relationship with God.

There not much more to say, as always Joyces work speaks for its self, if you haven,t read anything by Joyce Meyer then its time to get started,and this could be as goog a start as any..I admire Joyce for useing her own lifes experiences,and communicatting a helping hand to others through this.Joyce is a go getter,so Don,t expect soothing counciling,God uses Joyce Meyer as a life changer...For both women and men

This book is for everyone. i have read many of Joyce's books but this one tops them all. Its easy to read. Easy to understand and apply to your life. It has definitely worked for me and changed me. I recommend this book to anyone and everyone who is young or old as we all have some kind of 'Approval Addiction' in us. Joyce talks about people who have issues when in most cases you look at you and see that you have the issue and not everyone else. It helps you to recognise and perceive things differently. I highly recommend this book as it will improve your life for the better.

The books from Joyce Meyer on Amazon are generally inexpensive, so thumps up.
This one in particular is my favourite one and I do read it at least once a year.

This one and many others have been a life changing for me, so God bless her for it. Imagine how much money you would spend on a therapist and how little you actually spend on her books or teachings that you can listen to online.

This a highly recommended buy.

I bought this book hoping to understand some more about the subject. Once I began reading I could not put the book down, and have found it to be inspirational. She writes form the heart, using everyday situations as examples and really brings home the truth about characteristics and behaviours that previously seemed unchangeable...they can be changed and our everyday relationships made so much happier, as this book has shown me.

This is a great book which I am using a s a reference resource to give out to friends and family. Each time it has presented some wonderful setting free truths that have been a great help. I think a lot of times we do not realize the addictive effect of approval we find ourselves needing in our lives until the little curse is brought to the surface!
