About The Author
Joyce Meyer is one of the world's leading practical Bible teachers. Joyce has authored nearly 100 books, which have been translated into 100 languages.

Breaking Approval Addition
Many people struggle with "approval addiction." They want to feel accepted and approved by peers and family members. Mrs. Meyer presents proven principles, personal stories and Bible text that will help readers overcome their addiction to people pleasing.

This book is divided into the following four sections:
  • Accepting Who You Are
  • Breaking Approval Addiction
  • Putting an End to People Pleasing
  • Finding Freedom from Comparison, Rejection and Control
The author believes that we should be "God Pleasers" instead of "people pleasers." Mrs. Meyer has first-hand knowledge of what approval addiction can do to a person's spiritual, emotional and physical health. This book offers information and encouragement to all who are ready to make positive changes in their lives.

Favorite Quotations
"True freedom never comes until we fully realize that we don't need to struggle to get from others what God freely gives us: love, acceptance, approval, security, worth, and value."

"If you feel you have lost something or someone you cannot do without, you are wrong. The only thing or person in life we absolutely cannot do without is God."

"When you enter into a new relationship, be careful how you get started. What you allow in the beginning will come to be expected throughout your association with that person."

"The person who is most likely to be controlled is someone who has always been controlled, so being controlled is a habit, a way of life."

"We should do what we do for the love of God and others. Being motivated by fear instead of love or faith does not please God."

My Thoughts
I have read many of Joyce Meyer's books in the past. I have followed her ministry for over 15 years and have been blessed by her teachings and publications.

This book is briefer and more concise than many of her previous books. I like the way the author gets right to the heart of the matter with fewer stories and anecdotes.

This book provides life-changing information for all who desire a life of confidence, acceptance, love, peace, joy and strength.

My Rating: 5 Stars Out Of 5
