I purchased this book at a time when I felt that I was dropping all the balls I was attempting to juggle. This book helped me to gain perspective and apply practical techniques to aggressively pursue peace in my life. My biggest lessons learned from this book include:
+ realizing that I can fight Satan or people -- not both
+ understanding that God gives me grace every day to do what He wants me to do, not necessarily what I want to do
+ knowing that the pursuit of peace is a full-time job

Whether you might be searching for freedom from the burdens that drag you down from day to day OR you might be at the highest peak of your "walk" - this book really touches on aspects I think beneficial for all to ponder. It helps us know that God loves us no matter our circumstances and provides the tools to guard against our own enemies (finances, depression, stress, fear, etc.)... but it's up to us to use our Mighty resource to the fullest!
Another amazing read from Joyce, with practical tips for ways to achieve a peaceful life.

Encouragement and wisdom towards greater joy.
WOW it took me a year to read this book. Honestly, this year has been so peaceful for me and I can't remember when I've felt so much peace in my life. This book was excellent. I'm glad that I read this slow and really allowed the key points to settle into my thoughts. With 2015 upon us, I highly recommend this book. There are so many things that Joyce touches on; you will love it! Kick off your new year with this great read helping you learn how to be peaceful.

I recently returned to the workforce after having my first child. This book has really helped me to simply let go of the things that I can't control and be okay with my reality. It's as if every issue in my life is addressed whenever I open the pages. I love the clear and direct way that she really spells things out. I highly recommend this book to anyone. It'll definitely help you stop worrying about the next year, day, minutes.

Really good. Practical. But assumes coming from a place where you usually choose rage and anger in conflict and teaches you to calm down and let offenses go. Could be dangerous for a codependent who already lets everything go and doesnt speak up in conflict. Just doesn't address the other side. Which is fine, but you have to read it already knowing what your unhealthy behavior is and read it in light of that.

I generally do not read self-help books, especially from televangelists. I made an exception for Joyce Meyer. I enjoy watching her on tv. She is no-nonsense and straight to the point. Rather than read it all at once, I slow down and read only one chapter every few days so I can digest her messge and put it to use in my life.
I really like Joyce's style. She's simple enough to understand, but there is such a depth and truth to her message. There was a lot of information and it's going to take me a while to kind of ponder it all, but that's why I took notes - so I could go back over them whenever I wanted.
What I've learned from this book is simply, that I'm too BLESSED to be stressed. I found that once I pray of things that bother me, I leave it alone and let GOD handle it, and thus far things have been very peaceful and calm in my life.

This is One GOOD Read!
If you desire peace in your life - real, true peace - this book will help you acheive it. Written in a very straightforward and simple style, Joyce gives specific instructions as to how to strive for and achieve peace that God always intended for us to have.
anything by Joyce Meyer is excellent. She is such a no-nonsense, down-to-earth spiritual leader. The book is a great way to study what God wants for us without having to try and decipher the ancient text wording yourself. Joyce's presentation is superb.

It is filled with practical wisdom.
Good book.....practical and specific
If you are not at peace then there is something wrong in your life and you need to find it. This book will help you do just that. Joyce Meyer does an amazing job at giving you ideas and strategies to find peace in you life.

Great book! This book really helped me learn how to become more peaceful. The only downfall is I need a copy of it pasted to my forehead so I can read it everyday. I struggle with finding that peace I read about! HA!
This book got me through an emotionally spiritually difficult phase in my life. I recommend it if you are struggling through a situation in your life that you can't change and need to turn over to God.
This book was very informative, she basically puts it out there to get over how your feeling and do what you have to do...... i love how straight foward this book is, no crap, just gives it to you straight!!

Recommends it for: Friends that struggle with letting go of control and that have trouble with anxiety.
I learned so much from this book that I don't even know where to start! Three main sections: Having peace with yourself, Having peace with others, Having peace with God. I love Joyce and I love this book.
This was a great book. It helped me in so many ways, and ways I didn't realize I needed to be helped. If anyone has a chance to read it, please do! Thanks, Joyce Meyer for a great book and help!
This is the perfect book for people who live a chaotic life, for people who dont understand how to have peace and stability in life.
This is an amazing read. It was gifted to me by my sister-in-law and could not have come at a more perfect time.

Recommends it for: to all the stressed out people
I loved this book and I need to read it over and over because this book speaks to those stress mongers like me.
If you wish to be at peace with everyone or anyone this is the book to teach you how. Good reading. I enjoyed it.
A good easy read with specific ideas on how to manage anxiety, fear and discontent with biblical support.
A LOT of useful information if you're struggling with anxiety, fear, worry, etc.
Super helpful for me... yet at times too simple and redundant.
She maybe one of the only authors' books that I'll reread.
