Eat The Cookie...Buy The Shoes: Book Review & Giveaway
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!

I have been a fan of Joyce Meyer for a long time. Although I do not always agree with everything she says theologically, she is a great speaker, preacher and author. This newest release from Meyer did not disappoint me in the least. Simply put this book is an encouragement to all who read it to do one thing: take time for yourself and celebrate yourself in the light of how God sees you!
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
