#1 New York Times bestselling author Joyce Meyer shares powerful, practical ways to experience a new level of joy and excitement about life every day.
The traffic is backed up, the kids are screaming, and the car is making a funny noise again. Any one of these challenges can test our temperament and rob us of joy. Our impulse is to write today off and hope for a better tomorrow. However, this creates a hard pattern to break. One terrible day easily turns into many-and soon we're living a life far from what God has in mind for us. A new, transforming sense of excitement, happiness, and contentment in our lives is possible when we pursue God's goodness each day. In 20 WAYS TO MAKE EVERY DAY BETTER, Joyce Meyer shares biblical illustrations, actionable advice, uplifting stories, and the encouragement we need to start enjoying the life God created for us.

Melissa5 Stars Out Of 5Practical and PowerfulApril 12, 2017MelissaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Book- I love Joyce Meyer's teaching. She is so down to earth, gets to the heart of things. Really if we just got the stuff she teaches the other things in our lives would fall into place.
She hit on so much that sucks the joy out of our days. One chapter in particular hit me so hard I was in tears. It was the chapter on dread. I live with a lot of it. I think because I struggle with the unknown, new situations that I have no idea what to expect. So therefore I dread a lot of things. I read it at a time that I needed it desperately. I wrote down all the scripture references to keep in the forefront of my mind.
Speaking of scripture, that is another thing about Joyce, everything she says is backed up by scripture. Her books are always rich in scripture references.
Each chapter is very short, so it won't take you long to read one a day and then put them into practice. These are very simple things but things we need to be doing to have better days which in turn will make us kinder and happier people to be around.
Study Guide- After you read each chapter in the book you can then to the separate study guide. I found the study guide to be a great way to process what I just read and write down my next steps, and scriptures.
I believe it's easy to read something and then forget about it but there is something about writing it down that makes it more impact-ful.
I really do recommend grabbing the study guide to go with the book, I think it will take you deeper and not let what you just read be surface level, yeah-it-sounds-good stuff.
A copy of this book was given to me through Netgalley.com. All opinions are my own.
Heart2HeartVictorville, CAAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5You don't have to put up with bad days any longer!April 11, 2017Heart2HeartVictorville, CAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"I'm just having a bad day."
Have you ever said that to yourself or perhaps a friend or family member in a way to excuse your behavior or attitude for the moment? Traffic is backed up, you spill your coffee before you even get a sip, the kids are driving you crazy, the kitchen faucet is dripping, your boss is in a mood, and the car is making that funny noise again. I'm just have a bad day!
While there aren't many days when all those things happen at once (thankfully), you and I both know that any one of those challenges can test our temperament, pollute our perspective, or hijack our joy. Far too often we write it off as a "bad day" and give up until tomorrow. Tomorrow will be better, we hope, while subconsciously waving the white flag of surrender on today.
But the problem with bad days is they tend to pile up - have you noticed that? A bad day becomes a bad week. A bad week becomes a bad month. And before you know it, a bad month becomes a bad year. Many of us spend the last week of every December saying the exact same thing: "I can't wait until this year is over!"
If you can relate to that, if you've ever given up on today, waiting on tomorrow, pick up Joyce Meyer's latest book. 20 Ways to Make Every Day Better! The book is divided into four equally important sections: "When You Awake," "New Steps to Take," " Patterns to Break," and "Before It's Too Late." These sections are meant to systematically take you through your day and show you what God's Word teaches about making that day and every day count. You can open any chapter at any time and apply the principle in that chapter to make your day immediately better. This book is full of biblical instruction, practical applications, stories to inspire, and helpful suggestions.
I received 20 Ways to Make Every Day Better by Joyce Meyer compliments of Faith Words, a division of Hachette Book Groups. What I love most about Joyce's books is that they drive home the point in a way that is both humorous and biblical. She just gives it to you straight like you need to hear things without candy-coating anything. As I was going through my own rough patch medically, this book enabled me to not chalk everything up to a "bad moment" in my life. That there were things I good glean from this time of suffering and trial and grow both spiritually and mentally in the process and most of all, make me a better person to be around. There is also the 20 Ways to Make Every Day Better Study Guide which helps you through each stage of the book. I would recommend you getting them both so you can work through the points of the book in conjunction with your own personal struggle. This would also be perfect for a great small group Bible study. After all, who doesn't have a bad day from time to time? I give both of these resources a 5 out of 5 stars.
bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5It's what's inside that makes the differenceMarch 31, 2017bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Do you think we can enjoy every day God has given us? Meyer is convinced we can and has written this book to help. It's not what is going on around us that makes the difference, she writes, but what is going on inside us.
Meyer believes there are specific things we can do to make each day better. She has taken what God's Word teaches and identified twenty principles for us. We need a good foundation so Meyer starts with that - conversing with God. She continues on by giving principles that help us get each day off to a good start, that require new steps for us and ones that break detrimental patterns in our lives.
I really like how practical Meyer is in her teaching. For example, on her chapter about dreaming, she reminds us that we must set goals. She also reminds us of the importance of our thoughts, something I've come to expect from Meyer and appreciate greatly. She also says we must submit our dreams to God, a step often neglected in books like this one.
I like Meyer's honesty too. For example, she suggests that many people experience bad days because they are not doing anything that gives them a sense of purpose. One antidote is helping others, another of her principles.
I was happily surprised by some of her principles. Learn something new, she suggests. Be adventurous, seeing each day as an opportunity. And one principle I'll need to remind myself often, be patient with myself.
I highly recommend this book to those looking for an encouraging book to help have a life more like the one God has in mind. The principles Meyer suggests are biblical and life giving. You may want to have a notebook with you when you read this book as Meyer has included practical suggestions at the end of each chapter for putting each principle into practice.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review.
