    Building on the premises of Power Thoughts and Living Beyond Your Emotions, Joyce Meyer examines the tremendous power of words. - which are the vehicles that convey our thoughts and emotions - and provides a series of guidelines for making sure that our talk is constructive, healthy, healing and used to good results. In a "Dictionary of God's Word" at the end of the book, Joyce provides dozens of scripture verses, arranged by topic, that she recommends reading and saying out loud as one way of using and claiming healing words.

    This book IS truly life changing. It is thought provoking, practical and helpful. I especially liked that Joyce took the time to include several lists of confessions, declarations and convictions to help me use and recall the lessons. I am grateful indeed for the useful guidance. Thank you Joyce !

  • No Apology: The Case for American Greatness

    In No Apology, Mitt Romney asserts that American strength is essential—not just for our own well-being, but for the world’s. Governments such as China and a newly-robust Russia threaten to overtake us on many fronts, and Islam continues its dangerous rise. Drawing on history for lessons on how great powers collapse, Romney shows how and why our national advantages have eroded.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Overall this book was very informative and interesting as Gov. Romney lays out his view of America, how he sees our place in the world and his vision for our future.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    He is very clear in laying out his concerns for American foreign affairs. I found his discussion of radical Islam very helpful as he laid out the difference between an Islamist and a Jihadist. His view of our relationship with China and Russia was also clear and interesting.

    The chapter on Energy Independence was thought provoking asking the reader/listener to consider which is more of a threat - a nuclear power accident or depending upon and sending all our wealth to countries that hate our way of life? Hmmmmmmmmm


    What does Mitt Romney bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The audio edition read by the author was great for giving one a sense of Gov. Romney's sincerity, enthusiasm and commitment to his principles.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    The second half was interesting but not as clear or concise as the first. Topics
    like our educational system, deficit, health care, entitlements etc are complicated and these chapters while informative tended to be duller than the first half dealing with his larger view and vision for our future.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall a good read for this Election year and learning more about the man who may be the next President of the United States.
