"In this book Joyce wrote of people who "derive their sense of worth and value from what they do rather than from who they are." She insists instead that "True freedom never comes until we fully realize that we don't need to struggle to get from man what God freely gives us: love, acceptance, approval, security, worth and value." He knows that we are so much more than what we do in life.""
"HURTING PEOPLE HURT PEOPLE. This is a wonderful book full of deep, personal testimony, admissions of the author's own personal vulnerabilities, ways that she came to deal with her own frustrations as well as particularly relevant verses from scripture, written exercises the reader can use to make Joyce's material specifically meaningful to them and prayers after every chapter."
"NEVER GIVE UP! This most inspirational book challenges us then, DARES us never to give up realizing that negativity (the Devil if you will) is indeed our enemy. Only trust in God and faith that, no matter how difficult your circumstances, if you believe in a positive outcome that will indeed eventually be yours!"
"THE "SERENITY PRAYER" EXPLAINED IN DETAIL: "God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference." Well this 285 page book can be summed up in that very prayer so helpful when committed to memory."
"In this book Joyce affirms that the Bible does not teach that we are never to feel anger. It does teach that when we do get angry we have the responsibility of learning to manage and control our anger in the proper way: "The message of these pages is....nothing is wrong with emotions, as long as they are kept under control.""
"Many of us are now familiar with what Alcoholic Anonymous calls the Serenity Prayer:"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference." Well this 285 page book can be summed up in that very prayer so helpful when committed to memory."
"POSITIVE, UPLIFTING AND INSPIRATIONAL ESPECIALLY FOR WOMEN. Joyce reminds "God has a plan--a new beginning--for each of us" and that "God does not withold his love, acceptance, and assistance from us because we fail from time to time. He is not looking for a perfect performance--just a willing heart that is surrendered to him.""
