Publisher's Summary

Everybody wants to be loved. We all need affirmation, acceptance, and approval. Let's face it: It feels good to be appreciated and admired. But when we depend on the approval of others to feel good about ourselves, it's impossible to have emotional stability or a healthy self-image. And when our value is based on how people see us rather than God's unconditional love for us, our desire for approval can become an addiction.

In The Approval Fix, number-one New York Times best-selling author Joyce Meyer gives you practical insights that will help you learn how to accept who you are and become the unique individual God created you to be. You'll experience greater confidence, deeper emotional stability, and healthier relationships - the life you're really longing for.

Today, discover the truth about God's love for you and approval of you. And enjoy the freedom to be the amazing person you can be in Him!

Derived from material previously published in Approval Addiction.

    "Right on target!"

    As usual, Joyce Meyer uses her personal experience and wisdom to make real connections to real people; helping them (and me) to realize the awesomeness of God's and their own personal value. Thanks for the truthful pep talk

    "Enlightening"

    This really helped me to identify some things about myself and how to walk free from controlling people. It pinpoints what's normal and what isn't in a relationship.

    "A Good Read for those with a Performance Complex"

    A perfectionistic performance mentality is something that I have battled for many years, and I have found this book helpful in my path to having a central focus on what God thinks of me rather than others. Joice discusses a great deal about being found in our identity in Christ rather than the opinions of others and breaking free of any restraints that seeking approval from others produces. She uses examples from her own life and the lives of others and scripture to illustrate her points and help the reader to objectively look at his or her life and see where actions and attitudes have been influenced by an unhealthy desire for approval from others.

    "Warning Please know who you are supporting"

    After researching this author I immediately decided to return it. Joyce Meyer is a blasphemous heretic! Please Look it up. She ADDS & TAKES AWAY from the Bible! she claims that JESUS CHRIST died and went to hell and was tortured for 3 days before rising from the dead. She claims if you do not believe her you will not be saved! And many many other blasphemous lies. She is a wolf in sheeps clothing leading The Lords people astray! Do not support this women. She bough a 10 MILLION dollar private jet, she has multiple mansions bought 440 thousand dollars of vehicles WITH THE CHURCH MONEY and that is just scratching the surface! Deuteronomy 4:2New American Standard Bible
    You shall not add to the word which I am commanding you, nor take away from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.

    "Not what I was hoping for"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Maybe but only if I can't find something else. The book is definitely a self help book but it just didn't hit like i expected. it needed some punch or better examples or something. can't put my finger on it but its missing some "umph"


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The examples/stories/speeches about loving yourself seemed a little cheesy.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrators voice seemed too light to read a Joyce Meyer book. Joyce's voice is deeper and has a country twang. I'd like to hear someone with a similar voice so you can hear the flair and attitude. the narrators voice seemed like a 1980's self help tape...cheesy. I would prefer that they talk rather than sound like they're giving a classroom presentation.


    Could you see The Approval Fix being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No i don't.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't read the book like its a presentation/speech. Joyce "preaches" so read it with feeling like your talking to real people. The reader almost sounded like Apple's Siri...computer like.
