About the Author

JOYCE MEYER has been teaching the Word of God since 1976 and in full-time ministry since 1980. Previously an associate pastor at Life Christian Church in St. Louis, Missouri, she developed, coordinated, and taught a weekly meeting known as "Life In The Word." After more than five years, the Lord brought it to a conclusion, directing her to establish her own ministry and call it "Life In The Word, Inc."

Now, her Life In The Word radio and television broadcasts are seen and heard by millions across the United States and throughout the world. Joyce's teaching tapes are enjoyed internationally, and she travels extensively conducting Life In The Word conferences.

Joyce and her husband, Dave, the business administrator at Life In The Word, have been married for over 35 years. They reside in St. Louis, Missouri, and are the parents of four children. All four children are married and, along with their spouses, work with Dave and Joyce in the ministry.

Believing the call on her life is to establish believers in God's Word, Joyce says, "Jesus died to set the captives free, and far too many Christians have little or no victory in their daily lives." Finding herself in the same situation many years ago and having found freedom to live in victory through applying God's Word, Joyce goes equipped to set captives free and to exchange ashes for beauty. She believes that every person who walks in victory leads many others into victory. Her life is transparent, and her teachings are practical and can be applied in everyday life.

Joyce has taught on emotional healing and related subjects in meetings all over the country, helping multiplied thousands. She has recorded more than 230 different audio-cassette albums and over 75 videos. She has also authored 49 books to help the body of Christ on various topics.

I had been watching Joyce Meyer on television for many years. Her background of abuse and emotional turmoil was something that drew me to her. Emotionally, I had no connections.
Not long ago I was in a season of emotional winter. Everything looked dark, cold and dreary. I had confessed many scriptures, read many books, but could not shake off my winter of discontent. I hate to admit it- but I was depressed. During this season I joined a book club and "Managing Your Emotions" was one of the books I selected.
When it arrived I was a little hesitant to open it because I did not know how it was going to challenge me. I started reading it and I was able to identify with some destructive cycles that I was going around in. I was always getting my feelings hurt, feeling rejected, feeling alone and unwanted. Joyce went through those cycles especially in dealing with her husband, Dave. As I read the book I started to realize that if she overcame all of those things then I could too.
There was no quick fix but she had to get in the word of God and start to believe what God said about her. She believed that God loved her and that he had good plans for her. She had to confess the scriptures daily and over a period of time she learned how to manage or take control over her feelings.
One thing that she mentioned in her book that was extremely powerful for me was the fact that God gave us these emotions but we needed to know when to express them. I learned that I could get angry, only I should not stay in anger because it produces bitterness. This book really helped me and reading it was like a therapy session.
Everyone who is breathing, has friends, families, children, co-workers etc. can benefit from reading this book. It might not be for you but it can help you to help someone else. It is information we all can use. (1-26-2004)

Emotions, what a powerful tool God has equiped us with. I find myself reading a portion of the book and then going back and re-reading it, because of how it has spoken to me.
I am reminded of an illustration she uses in the first part of the book talking about emotions and how messed up they can be. She talks about different sizes, shapes, and colors of shoe strings and how they are all knotted together. She further tells how you don't just straighten them out all at once, it is a process of untangling the strings, one-at-a-time. How clever! Our emotions do get all tangled and knotted, and we think we can just fix them all at once. Not so!
I pray that you will read this and realize, as I have, that God gave us emotions and we are to hand them over to Him and let him teach us how to manage them as he originally had planned.

Joyce Meyer is an amazing, annointed teacher whose casual style and relatability is so attractive.
This book, like all her teaching, is written as if you were sitting in the room with her having a chat. She tells it like it is and teachs from God's Word with principles to manage your emotions as Jesus did.
If you ever get depressed or angry or sad or frustrated when you don't want to - Joyce will set you straight and help you live a life controlled by the Spirit and not your emotions.

I have struggled for pretty much my whole Christian life with finding balance emotionally. I seem to swing between two extremes. I either go numb and try to deny my feelings or I dwell too much on my feelings and allow them to overwhelm me. This book gave me hope that things could be different and that I'm not alone in my struggles. I very much appreciate the personal stories and struggles Joyce shares in this book. Especially since I could relate to so many of them. I truly believe that God has given Joyce Meyer a powerful gift for words and a great anointing on her ministry.
This book has truly changed my life. The advice she gives is both practical and biblical. This book is a must read for any Christian who is struggling to overcome emotional hurts and struggles.
I definitely intend to read more of Joyce Meyer's books in the future.

This is an axcellent book if you find yourself acting moody at times. The book explains that we need to recognize the difference between how our natural lives and our spiritual lives affect us in different ways. Most of us only acknowledge the natural circumstances that we believe causes us to have behavior changes, but it's not as simple as we think. Nor will a pill or psychiatrist, or an obsession help us understand our emotions. We must look at the natural and spirital actions and reactions to get to the root of the problem it there is in fact a problem to begin with. On a personal note,this book taught me that when I'm moody, it's not because something is wrong with me or my surroundings, its because something in my life or spirit has changed in some way and I don't know how to interprate these changes (personal, professional or health). Now I recognize when this is happening and I can back up and say "whoah" I need some personal time to get my head together. Then I manage to see my way through those awkward times. So yes this a good book, easy to read, and gets right to the point, which is her style if you have ever watched her on TV and I hope you find it as informative as I did.
