“The truth is, God wants you to enjoy your life every day. Not just occasionally.” – Joyce Meyer

Joyce Meyer gives readers/listeners twenty ways to improve our daily lives. Her goal is to give Christians’ encouragement and spiritual direction to improve their daily lives, but she’s also trying to encourage them. Meyer begins with Morning Prayer; a conversation with God about anything. She recommends making it casual; while you’re having a cup of coffee, making the bed, etc. Talk to God like a friend, and be patience as you learn how to listen to Him. Those growing in Christ who’ve yet to overcome the feeling of dread (the precursor of fear) will appreciate Joyce’s advice on conquering it. In personal growth, she recommends dreaming big and re-examining your expectations. Most important: stay in the Word. Meyer recommends keeping devotionals around the house, in the car, at work time, etc and taking advantage of your free time by reading a quick devotional. Some of Meyer’s advice is common sense and great reminders for those wrapped up in everyday survival and need to include it on to-do lists. She suggests making time for stepping out to learn something new, remembering to value ones self, slowing down, and to forgive and forget. The list goes on. 20 Ways to Make Every Day Better is set up in four parts: 1. When You’re Awake, 2. New Steps to Take, 3. Patterns to Break, 4. Before it’s too Late. You can almost line these up by a Christian’s growing stages – Baby Christian to Mature Christian. The chapters are short; Meyer has become an expert at saying a lot in very few words. The Study Guide is a sold separately.
