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

The Narrator is terrible

I love Joyce Meyer, i listen to her podcasts regularly and i have read a couple of her paper books. The narrator's monotone voice ruins this book. I have a very hard time listening. I enjoy the content but I struggle to stay focused on her voice. I'm not sure why Joyce did not narrate this as she has narrated other books of hers that i've listened to. I've had this book for a couple months now and I try to go back to it, but i'm only half way finished because I get tired of the narrators voice. I think i'll buy the print version of this book instead.

Encouraging!

I enjoyed this audio book. I now know that I can over come bad habit such as anger. This audio book gives good advice on how to over come bad habits with God's Word something I didn't realize that I could do. It has given me peace, enlightenment and encouragement to get where I want to be and break free from bad habits in my life that effect everyone around me.

Not Joyce

It's not just the content that matters. this woman's voice and the attitude behind her voice are nothing like Joyce Meyer. This reader doesn't put emphasis in the same way that Joyce does.

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.

Great book! Love it!

I wanted to establish good habits, but I didn’t realized that I’ve been struggling with bad habits too. After listening this book halfway, I realized I’ve been procrastinating and always made excuses, and through Joyce’s advices from God I stopped biting nails. By the time I finished listening to this book, my nails had grown beautifully (even though not perfect) which this is only possible to stop that bad habits because of God. Highly recommended!

I'm sure that Sandra is a lovely person, but she should consider some space coaching if she is going to record audio books. I cringe every time that she says gad instead of God.

Born again and loving it.

Who knew at age 44, that reading coukd be so helpful. My struggles as a new creature is difficult but I thank Joyce Meyer for this book and her Battlefield of the Mind book. Besides God, the Holy Bible, and the Holy Spirit, I appreciate my church and my tv gospel family.

Excellent content. Found the reader rather robotic

Excellent content.
I can see why the reader may have been chosen for her similar vocal sound and accent to Joyce, but found her reading style rather robotic and unnatural, and had to purposely try to ignore that to focus on the content.
