Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In The Confident Woman, Joyce Meyer draws on her decades of experience interacting with and ministering to women. The message in this book is also the result of her personal journey from insecurity and self-hatred to a confidence through which she is realizing her full potential.

Through Joyce's classic clarity and practicality, you will learn how to overcome all obstacles to live a bold, victorious life. She explains that true confidence is faith in Christ and comes from being open to learning. She reminds us that "women are a precious gift from God to the world. They are creative, sensitive, compassionate, and talented."

Joyce gives women the keys to identifying barriers to confidence, explores the empowerment that comes from preparation, and outlines the steps to independence through dependence on God. She explores the seven characteristics of a woman with confidence, which include a woman who knows she is loved, who refuses to live in fear, and who does not live by comparisons, "if onlys," or "what ifs."

An exciting, meaningful, and intentional life awaits every woman as she learns how to live beyond fear and begin living boldly. God is anxious to light the way and supply every need for walking with confidence.

Review:

"Megaselling author Meyer (Approval Addiction; Battlefield of the Mind) turns her pointed pen to building confidence in women. She defines confidence as 'all about being positive about what you can do — and not worrying over what you can't do.' She quickly moves into describing God's view of women ('God never intended for women to be less than men in anyone's estimation') and what the Bible says about women in ministry, offering her interpretation of the Apostle Paul's controversial comments in 1 Corinthians. Meyer's quick jabs become less defined as she describes the seven secrets of the confident woman; rattles on about the Proverbs 31 woman; lists 10 women who overcame barriers to become leaders; and then describes 10 steps to female independence. The last seven chapters focus on how women can eliminate fear from their lives. As usual, Meyer presents a relentlessly upbeat message to her legion of eager readers: be confident, here's how, get going. It's a vital message to be sure, but discerning readers might prefer fewer platitudes and examples, less repetition and a bit more depth.

Synopsis:

Bestselling author Meyer encourages women to boldly embrace all that God created them to be by finding their true confidence. She explains that confidence stems from being positive in one's actions, living honestly, and having faith.

Synopsis:

What keeps women from being their best? Joyce has been helping women better themselves by helping identify emotional barriers and physical, mental, and spiritual obstacles in their lives for years. Now she provides another answer-confidence.

Our society has an insecurity epidemic, women in particular. Compensating by pretending to be secure-a common response-only leads to feelings of shame. Lack of self-confidence causes great difficulty in relationships of all kinds, and in marriage instances can even lead to divorce.

In THE CONFIDENT WOMAN, Joyce explores the seven characteristics of a woman with confidence, which include a woman who knows she is loved, who refuses to live in fear, and who does not live by comparisons. Joyce explains that confidence stems from being positive in your actions and living honestly, but most importantly from having faith, in God and in ourselves.
