The Secret to True Happiness
Enjoy Today, Embrace Tomorrow

by Joyce Meyer
Read by Sandra McCollom

      "The only life you can enjoy is your own."

Unfortunately, there are so many who believe they don't have a right to enjoy life - workaholics, abused / oppressed individuals, family providers, etc. If this is how you or someone you know feels, then Joyce Meyer is spiritual prepared to tell you differently.

Meyer's most recent release isn't one of those "SMILE and you'll FEEL better" or "CHEER up, it could be WORSE" self-help books. Joyce shares anecdotes and scripture as she touches on subjects from everyday life, such as children, spouses, work, home life, and responsibility. She talks about how our fast-paced lives can distract us. Daily dealings with commitments, people and issues will wear us down and steal our joy. The key word here is JOY, which is deeper than a facial expression or surface emotion. Joyce wants us to also delve deep and find strength in God for those deep emotional issues which keep us from moving on and enjoying life. Joyce's goal is to remind us that God loves us and wants us to have peace, experience contentment and be happy.

I truly enjoy listening to Joyce Meyer. Not only is she anointed, she is real, and her words gives us hope. This book will open your eyes, remove the guilt, and urge you to stand firm on keeping your joy.

Sandra McCollom, Joyce Meyer's daughter, narrates the audio version. With each audio she becomes stronger and more confident.
