Overview

Joyce Meyer, #1 New York Times bestselling author, shares 100 effective ways to develop the mindset to live a simpler, happier life.

It seems hard to live the simple life you crave as you try to balance work, family, friends, and other demands. But things will change when you learn to exercise faith rather than doubt and confidence rather than people-pleasing. Drawing from her own experience and Scripture, Joyce Meyer outlines 100 effective ways to lead a simpler, more joyful life.

Her practical suggestions include:

  • Don't be afraid of what people think
  • Let go of the past
  • Choose Your Battles
The Bible says to focus on one day at a time. Set yourself free by acknowledging you don't have to do, fix, or manage everything. When you learn to embrace the fact that God is on your side He will help you live a simple life.

This book was a quick read, but if the recommendations are put into practice the effects will be lifelong. As a previous reviewer noted, there are some contradictions, i.e., 'don't be afraid to say 'no' to things that you can't accommodate', yet at the same time the book emphasizes that you will gain more joy from serving as many people as you possibly can. That being said, contradictions are minor and infrequent and the take-aways are worth the read. The lessons are simple and confidently conveyed. The key to making this book work for you is to use personal discipline to put the '100 ways' into play.

I was impressed with Joyce Meyer's list, and as much as I'd love to do them all right away (or at least most of them), some of them require me to really think and re-program my thought process. Some of my more favored items from the list are: #1 Do One Thing at a Time, #6 Let Go of What Lies Behind You, #7 Learn How to Say No, #18 Establish Boundaries, #69 Be Realistic in Your Expectations, #87 Beware of Distractions, etc. I could go on and on. Many of the items on the list apply to me in one way or another.

Each section is only a few pages long, and it contains an inspirational saying, and a passage from the Bible. Joyce also uses some examples from life to help the reader understand how to apply the item to their own life.

This was a nice and helpful book that will need to remain on my nightstand for quite a while as I try to work through some of the items on the list that are more meaningful to me at this time.

These are not outlandish ideas, but rather things that occur regularly in life that when added together or tackled separately (you really don't need to tackle all 100 items at once! I'm going to start with two or three and do them well prior to adding more.) will help to create a simpler life. I would encourage you to pick up this book and read through it yourself.

By the time I got to the end of the book (skimming the last 1/3 because it was starting to be repetitive) I was overwhelmed by all the many ways I needed to 'simplify'. The premise is great and she has many wonderful points and down to earth examples, as she does in all her books, but I'd rather see her list maybe 10 ways to simplify and it would have made a stronger point with more impact on me. I guess it was just like writing a book on '100 Ways to Make Housekeeping Simple'. It doesn't seem simple anymore and the reader can't keep track of it all.

Be ware trying to download this one. I have been trying to get this to load since the first of January. Nothing but problems. 5 phone calls and still no solution. Can't get it to load and can't delete it. They are blaming the network. I can download other books just not this one.

I read all 100 and started all over again. I usually read one a day or so and this has been a most enlightening book.

I am currently busy reading this wonderful book. Her book change my whole life. I never thought that what was going on in my mind was the reason why most of the things went wrong in my life. This makes me control my mind more often. As soon as a negative thought of worry,etc. came into my mind, i immediately pray and think of the possitive of the situation. Me and my husband use to have a fight every evening and i saw as soon as i think of all the work to do, i get so frustrated and my mind was so filled with negative thoughts that moment that i immediately take something small and it develop in a big fight. In other words, I satisfy the devil by acting on my negative mind. My mind is now so open for things like that...yes it will still take time and a lot of praying, but this changed my life so much that i sometimes sit in my work and pray and just sometimes cry for the person that Jesus changed me into by taking in the words that Joyce so beautifull described in her book. You have to read it. It will change your life....and also those of your family by changing the way you think.

We read a chapter or two a night and go back over the chapters we read the night before. It is an easy read a page or two a chapter and the 100 ways are common sense. Practice will make it become natural and give you a happy heart.

Found ways to recognize how to simplify my life and help from God to do it.

Feeling pulled in too many directions at once? Finding it hard to cope with all you've agreed to do? This book can help you change that! Short chapters make it easy to complete in short time segments. I first listened to the book on cd, then purchased for my NOOK so can periodically refer back to it. Full of easy to understand and incorporate in daily life, this is a great self-help book, enhanced with references to God and scriptures that encourage us to better living.

My second Joyce Meyer book and it was pleasurable to say the least. Self-help devotees will savor it all as the author points out so vividly what life's priorities really are, and how to achieve more satisfaction from those hectic schedules and demands. The writing is clear-cut and void of any dichotomies. The one item of interest that stuck in my mind was about setting boundries (#18). The solid tips offered are profitable, then convincing, and finally down-to-earth. This little book makes a great gift idea, and is perfect for individuals who are at their rock-bottom in life.

First of all, Joyce Meyer is a Christian writer. I'm familiar with other books of hers, but I hadn't enjoyed any via audiobook. This book is read by Sandra McCollom who is Joyce's youngest daughter. She is a Christian stay at home mom to twin girls and did a wonderful job with this book. I enjoyed her passion in the reading as well as her voice and cadence.100 Ways to Simplify Your Life begins with #1, moving all the way through #100. Each of the Ways are their own section in the audio, so it's easy to re-listen to them and refer back to them. Each of the 100 Ways begins with a quote and I found myself looking forward to them. In fact I made notes of some that were particularly interesting to me. I do not want to spoil the book for anyone, but I'd like to list a couple of the Ways.#5--Don't worry about tomorrow#11--Don't make mountains of of molehills#33--Follow your heart#42--Be thankful#65--Give up control#81--Bridle your tongue#97--Be faithfulMany, if not all of these, contain biblical references, further backing up her view of the ways to simplify your life, by God's word. It is true that God wants us to lead a simple life and cast our troubles to him. I believe that was the message I was to take from this book since it's the one I noticed being repeated throughout the many Ways.I loved this book. I was listening to this at the same time that I read No Experts Needed: The Meaning of Life According to You by Louise Lewis. I do not believe that these were sent to me at the same time was an accident. It was meant for me to read them. It is my goal, challenge, mission and prayer to begin living a better life. I really have this book to thank.
