    From nail biting to cell phone addiction, procrastination to overspending, bad habits seem to outnumber the good ones. Unfortunately, we pay a price for bad habits that outweighs the immediate gratification that they bring. In this audiobook, Joyce Meyer starts by examining the nature of habits. The first habit - and most important one to have - is the God Habit.

    What did you like best about Making Good Habits, Breaking Bad Habits? What did you like least?

    I watch Joyce Meyer all the time on TV and I have always liked her very much. I loved the concept of replacing bad habits with good ones and ordered the audio book.

    Unfortunately, the narrator's pronunciation and accent began to bug me. (for instance, "God will not forget you" sounded like "Gad will nat forget you." Also, there was no story-telling flow, just sounded like reading.

    I thought Sheesh, who is this narrator?? So I Googled her name, Sandra McCollom, and found that she is Joyce's daughter. The Google search opened Pandora's Box of all these articles about Joyce Meyer and her family and all the controversy about her ministry and money etc. It was kind of a bummer.

    The concept and the message of the book is great, but I couldn't enjoy it because eventually I was wincing every time she said Gad.

    I think Joyce would be better to hire a professional to convey her books with more flow and enthusiasm.
