Synopsis

There is an epidemic of insecurity in society today. Many people suffer from an unhealthy need for affirmation. They are not capable of feeling good about themselves. For some the quest for approval becomes an actual addiction, as they seek self-worth from the outside world because they can't find it within themselves. Joyce Meyer understands the need for seeking approval from others to overcome feelings of rejection and low self-esteem. The good news, she says, is that there is a cure. God provides all the security anyone needs. Her goal is to provide a pathway toward freedom from the approval addiction.

About the Author

Sometimes we cannot know the difficulties people go through, unless they are willing to share their experiences. Such is the life of Pauline Joyce Hutchison, now, Joyce Meyer, Christian author, speaker, and president of Joyce Meyer Ministries. Joyce spoke often in her discussions about being sexually abused by her own father after he returned from World War II. As happens many times to such children, she married shortly after her senior year in high school, done usually to be able to leave the home where abuse happened. That marriage lasted only five years and was filled with unhappiness with a cheating husband. He even persuaded her to steal against her own better judgment. She says that she returned that money years later. After her divorce, her life was very tumultuous as she went from bar to bar aimlessly, until one day she met her future husband, Dave Meyer, an engineering draftsman. They were soon married, and remain married today.

Joyce relates her story of "a Jesus moment" when she was driving to work one day in 1976. She said as she drove she heard God call her name. All day she felt energized with the spirit of God, even as she participated in bowling at the local bowling alley that night.

Meyer began serving in a local church in St. Louis, leading an early morning Bible class. Eventually, the church became one of the most popular in the area, mostly due to Meyer's popularity as a Bible teacher. At the same time, she began a 15 minute radio broadcast on a local radio station.

In 1985, Meyer started her own ministry called "Life in the Word". By then, she was on six additional stations including Chicago and Kansas. Her husband Dave suggested she start a television ministry in 1993, which was the beginning of her current program, "Enjoying Everyday Life, which still airs today.

Meyer has written over 100 books, and has sold and given away billions of copies. In 2002, Hachette Book Group paid Meyer over $10 million for her catalog of independently released books. In 2005, Time magazine named Meyer among their "25 Most Influential Evangelicals in America". Meyer was ranked at number 17. "Joyce is and continues to be an incredible testimony of the dynamic, redeeming work of Jesus Christ."
