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.
