Publisher's Summary

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. By making it a habit to start your day by reading the Bible and communing with God, asking for His help in your efforts and His strength and sustenance, the stage is set for overcoming the habits you want to break and establishing new ones in their place.

She then explores how to break bad habits by examining the destructive negative behavior patterns.

The author moves on to discuss 14 good habits and devotes a chapter to each. By the end of the chapter, the listener has a specific roadmap to follow until the behavior has become automatic (the definition of a habit). It's like following a GPS to get you to a new place. After traveling the same route several times, the GPS isn't needed for you to find your destination. The "habit" of following the right route is ingrained.

Among the habits discussed are:

  • The God Habit
  • The Habit of Being Decisive
  • The Health Habit
  • The Happy Habit
  • The Habit of Faith
  • The Habit of Excellence
  • The Habit of Being Responsible
  • The Generosity Habit
  • The Hurry Habit
  • The Discipline Habit
  • The Confidence Habit

    "Couldn't get past the accent and "reading" voice"
    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.

    "My mistake"
    Would you ever listen to anything by Joyce Meyer again?

    I wouldn't read anything from her that is God-centered


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Sandra McCollom?

    Reader was just fine, in the 6 minutes of book that I listened to.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. Despite I'm an atheist, I can hear some God references without getting utterly annoyed about it (for example, Zig Ziglar). But this was too much. It was my mistake, because obviously I read the title, not the description.


    Any additional comments?

    Christian books should be shelfed under "Christian books", not under "Self Development". Those two categories are not related at all.
