I Dare You
Embrace Life with Passion

by Joyce Meyer
Read by Sandra McCollom

      In her most recent book, I Dare You, Meyer dares fellow Christians to live with "passion and purpose": "Life is purpose and passion is the fuel." Meyer mentions she feels Christians are losing their long term passion - their enthusiasm for life. With scriptures, personal stories, and sage advice, Meyer's goal is to rekindle your passion, your zeal for your life, and your walk with God.

Some of the things Meyer addresses are: earning one's keep ("You don't work, you don't eat"); being responsible for one's life and accepting what comes. ("Acceptance with Joy means trusting God"); get excited about being a Christian; not backing out of things because you feel uncomfortable; and use what is in your hands - great things WILL come.

Meyer believes passion is how you approach life. One example of this is Jesus and how all he did, he did passionately, including dying. Also, she feels Christians need to be "engaged in life", give it all they've got. She goes over the many things God expects from his people and how to deal with issues such as anger, guilt, complaining, etc.

If you haven't tried a Meyer motivational title -and there are many to choose from- please do. Each holds a revelation in "enjoying everyday life" and becoming a better person.
