Overview

Engrained in our culture is the belief that unbending discipline is the only sure way to success. You must go to the gym five times a week, never order the dessert, and don't even think about buying that dress you keep staring at in the store window. Breaking from such a regimented lifestyle is a sign of weakness, right? Wrong!-and Joyce wants to tell us why...

Though setting rules in our lives are important, it's just as important that we break them from time-to-time. Structure is a powerful tool, but when diverging from your own goals is seen as catastrophic, it can have a hugely negative effect on us. Balance is a core value in life and every once in awhile we deserve to indulge in a guilty pleasure or two. So don't feel bad about straying from your goals every once-in-awhile and in fact, embrace it: eat the cookie and buy the shoes!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Sandra McCollom interprets the author's work and down-to-earth style with crisp, clear diction....McCollom's power and energy complement Meyer's teachings on the Bible, which stress the importance of starting the day with God, even if it's only 10 minutes....McCollom maintains vocal consistency throughout and provides context with her versatile vocal range. This audio devotional is a good choice to listen to during a short commute or while preparing for work."—AudioFile Magazine on New Day, New You
