WEEK OF BOOKS: Making Good Habits, Breaking Bad Habits

In her usual forthright style, Joyce Meyer addresses this issue of habits in her book Making Good Habits, Breaking Bad Habits. Starting with what habits are she addresses the benefits and challenges of both making new habits and breaking bad habits. She gives seven points that you need to do in order to create new habits. Then she goes on to address 14 new behaviors that need to be created in order to change any other habits. The habits include spending time with God, being decisive, taking care of your health, having faith, being excellent, being responsible, being generous, slowing down, being confident, adding value to others, and being self-controlled or disciplined.

One of the things that I love about Joyce Meyer’s books is that she is clear and forthright about the topics she discusses. She offers practical advice and does it in a way that is relatable and Biblical, and this book is no exception. Her writing is well-structured and precise. She motivates you to change your habits and shows you a clear path to working on it. I think the best piece of advice that I read though was to focus on one habit I want to change at a time because I am one of those people who decides to change several things at once and then gets burned out and quits. So if you are ready to start changing your habits and are unsure where to start, read this book.
