The Confident Woman by Joyce Meyer

When we have confidence in God and His love and kindness, we can progress to living confidently and enjoying the life He wants for us.  (pg. 6)

Throughout this book, Meyer gives points on how to have that confidence through scripture, examples and her personal testimony. I like that she writes in a straight-forward, down-to-earth way, so positive, wanting every woman to see that no matter what her past involves or where she is now, she can be that confident woman she was created to be. Meyer discusses the the characteristics of a confident woman and how to overcome the fears and stress that sometimes stand in our way.

I can see this being a very inspirational book, with concrete steps to take. I liked the advice to do something outrageous, not stupid, but something creative and unexpected for you. Keep life interesting. I also liked her emphasis on being who you are, focusing on your strengths.

That being said, for me it wasn’t an outstanding book. I enjoyed reading it and do feel it had some good points, but I it wasn’t life-changing for me. I do believe, though, that there are women out there who truly need this affirmation, who will be empowered and encouraged by what Meyer has to say. It just wasn’t quite the book for me.
