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.

Battlefield of the Mind by Joyce Meyer is one of those books.
The title drew me to the book and the content kept me hooked.
Ms. Meyer believes we can change our lives by changing our minds, and I do too! While many other authors simply offer a ‘Pray and Wait Approach’, Ms. Meyer provides reasonable, practical, and effective tips and action steps to focus your mind and think the way God thinks.
What will this accomplish?
“Gain control over you mind and find freedom and peace.”
“Recognize damaging thoughts and stop them from influencing your life.”
“Be patient with yourself even when you make mistakes.”
“Arm yourself with the Word of God, praise, prayer, and other powerful spiritual weapons.”
“Overcome your mental ‘wilderness’ – the bad attitudes and excuses people use that keep them from God – and find undreamed-of happiness and fulfillment.”
Sounds promising, doesn’t it?
When reading material, I'm always storing quotes and nuggets of information in my head or writing them down. There was so much good stuff in Battlefield of the Mind that I made a decision to go back through the book a second time to capture all the notable text so the first time through, I could just simply enjoy the read.
I must share that aside from the plethora of solid, helpful information, there was one area, in particular, which struck a very important chord with me.
Before I met my husband, I used to get moments of overwhelming despair; despair which would always preempt a significantly positive event or season. I had a hard time verbalizing how I felt, but the term ‘Dark Clouds' seemed to come close. These clouds would block the sun, cause everything to appear gloomy and gray, and leave a pervasive feeling of anguish. It felt like a self-defeating behavior, except I had no intention of sabotaging my happiness or joy, so I didn’t understand their presence. I've never suffered from depression and have a 'never say die' attitude; fear and defeat are not emotions I spend any time on. So when the dark clouds would roll in, I didn't understand why, nor did I know how to prevent them from showing up.
Thank you, Ms. Meyer, for giving my experience a name - Mind-Bending Spirits. In this section she speaks of the evil spirits lurking around and the havoc they can play on our mind. Boy did this hit home! Her experience and advice in this area was invaluable, but even beyond that, feeling understood and having my feelings validated was priceless. Even though I haven't experienced those awful Dark Clouds in years, I now have an understanding of the situation and feel confident that should they return, I'm equipped to deal with them in a positive, healthy, proactive way.
Do you suffer from conditions of the mind such as worry, doubt, confusion, depression, anger, and feelings of condemnation? These are all addressed, as are the consequences of judgmental, critical, suspicious, wandering, and passive minds. It’s really fascinating reading and relatable on so many levels. If some of the text doesn’t apply to you, it will certainly apply to someone you personally know and may help you relate more effectively.
The last third of the book focuses on ten ‘Wilderness Mentalities’. A wilderness mentality is a wrong mindset. For example, “My behavior may be wrong, but it’s not my fault,” and, “my future is determined by my past and present.” One by one, she exposes these false concepts and tackles, head-on, exactly how to overcome them. Her honesty is refreshing, her no-nonsense approach much needed, and her encouragement contagious.
“People who must always have someone else pushing them will never really do anything great. Those who only do what is right when someone is looking won’t get very far either. We must be motivated from within, not from without. We must live our lives before God, knowing that He sees all and that our reward will come from Him if we persist in doing what He has asked us to do.”
Born from Ms. Meyers own trials, tragedies, and ultimate victories, she shares openly from the heart for our benefit.

Thank the Lord for Joyce Meyer's ministry and for showing me a way OUT of my bad mind set!! I have recommended it to many people since reading it.
