Each time I have read this book, I have discovered something new. This book is written by a person who is an open book about her past, a person who isn't afraid to share her failures and her successes. I highly recommend this book to anyone who struggles in their thoughts. ( )

A brilliant book written by an inspirational woman, leader and teacher.

A lot of the issues we are challenged with, or fight against, are not battles with other people so much as battles in our own minds - in the way we think about things, which then affects how we feel about things and ultimately how we respond to circumstances.

Our thought-life does not have to control us.

GIGO - Garbage In, Garbage Out.

We can all control our thought-life and how we react to circumstances. "For as a man/woman thinks in his/her heart, so does he/she become." ( )

What I learned from this book was to seriously consider about my thoughts and thought process. This is a non-fiction work about obedience and finding out how that really works. It is so uplifting to see God's bigger plan at work, which is something often hard to notice in our own lives. You can read this multiple times and still find new nuggets of wisdom...and application! Joyce Meyers is a favorite because you can see by the fruit of her works that she lives what she writes. Bad trees cannot produce good fruit. ( )

This particular book challenges you to take a good look at yourself and how you think, as well as it is a good tool to use with any ministy teaching venue. Even though these are Joyce Meyers own personal experiences, many of us I am sure have had to deal with or are dealing with some of the same issues that are addressed.
Thought provoking book, would recommend it to everyone, I am using it in my women's book group and it has generated alot of conversations, opinions and possible paths to finding solutions for the women in this group. ( )

Even if religious perspective is not your deal there are loads and loads of wisdom in this book. It was simple to read and very fast. I'd recommend it because it did help me be more aware of my thoughts and the downward spirals of negativity that are so easy to drift into. I did not believe the phrase "Happiness is a choice" before but I know it to be true now.

Battlefield of The Mind also reminded me that common sense perhaps is not so common, especially in a stressed life. This is common sense with a Christian face that heals the universal soul. ( )
