About this deal

I learned a few very helpful things in reading this book, particularly the concept of disciplining the mind, and of "renewing one's mind" through Scripture.

Mary and John are miserable, and they generally suck, because Mary wants to be independent, "have her own money," work, and make decisions for herself, and John is weak lets Mary walk all over him. Worry, doubt, confusion, depression, anger and feelings of condemnation: all these are attacks on the mind.She understands and describes the feelings and problems in ways that made me sit up and go, "thats me! The fact that it is already so mass produced that it can be very cheaply bought and yet so powerfully change someone's life ( by the work of the Holy Spirit ) is a testament to Joyce, it is completely grounded in scripture all the way through, my critical mind couldn't fault it while my open were being opened and my soul being fed. This book was really great at helping me to realize what thoughts I was allowing to be present in my head; most of them were negative and self-defeating. Joyce’s passion to help hurting people is foundational to the vision of Hand of Hope, the missions arm of Joyce Meyer Ministries. If you know someone who struggles with depression, negative thoughts, or gets bummed out from life then I would strongly recommend this book.

Secondly, the use of Scripture throughout the book shows that she is very God-centered in her intentions, even if I don't agree with everything she has to say. I, on the other hand, live that way for weeks on end sometimes, and I got quite resentful and jealous. As I read along I kept getting the notion that this woman might be a twit, though I don't believe that after seeing her speaking segment, and looking at what she's accomplished, but the way she comes across with her writing. That being said, this is a book that should not be read straight through, but should be read slowly and reflected upon (I also journaled through it). I don't see the harm in a little woolgathering every now and then, especially if it's not distracting you from a task at hand, but she says that's bad.But what makes this book stand out is that she doesn’t pretend that this is always an easy thing to do. Admittedly like many others here I not a big fan of televangelists, I appreciate their tremendous work in reaching to an audience that would never consider for themselves going face to face with people in a christian church. The book is broken down in chapters, each dealing with an aspect of the mind and the many ways we allow certain factors to control our thinking and consequently our behavior.
