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.

Good, but not THAT great! I expected more

Overall, this was good, but there are better stuff out there on being a “people pleaser!” I thought “Stop People Pleasing” by Patrick King was a lot better! “Not Nice” and “When I Say No, I Feel Guilty” have excellent reviews also, but I can’t vouch for them cuz I haven’t gone through them yet. The Approval Fix talked about a Christian mentality to have, and some Bible verses to back up what the author said. I liked how the author used her own experiences as examples, and taught to have faith. However, I didn’t think she went that in-depth about why we are people pleasers, or give specific tactics or strategies other than having faith. I expected more from such a famous author. I’m more hard in my reviews in established authors (admittedly I don’t like to screw over new authors with harsh reviews. Guess I’m too nice). One thing about Joyce Meyer- I like her flavor of Christianity. Recently, I had a Christian from the chapel here (I’m on a military base in Iraq), who shoved down his flavor of Christianity down my throat. I thought he was rude and I want to confront him about it. His evangelical approach used ‘scare tactics’ and he was too extreme. Since dealing with him, I felt less inclined to read my Bible or daily devotionals. He left a bad flavor of Christianity in my mouth. I like Joyce Meyer’s loving, and not so abrasive approach to being evangelical much better. It might help bring me back to Christ.

Accurate but kind of basic

its helpful information, but doesn't go too deep. maybe more real life stories illustrating the concepts and difficulties implementing those concepts would have made this richer.

This book was definitely a Word for me. Answered everything that I prayed for insight and understanding on. If you feel like you aren't living your life for you because everyone from your spouse to employer is always demanding or expecting your time...this is a book for you
