Joyce Meyer‘s Confident Woman was an enjoyable read and kept my attention to the very end. Joyce is one of the world’s leading practical Bible teachers and has written more than 80 inspirational books. She also has radio and television broadcasts around the world.

The Confident Woman

Society often puts tremendous pressure on us — working in a competitive field, being the perfect parent, meeting those grades, trying to live up to the expectations of others, etc. — which in turn can leave us feeling insecure about ourselves. I highly recommend The Confident Woman: Start Today Living Boldly and Without Fear to all women, even those who may not feel they lack confidence.

This book is inspiring, uplifting and quite practical for women in their everyday lives. Although Joyce makes several generalizations which will not apply to everyone, it is a very well-written book for the most part. She speaks from her own experiences in a way that lets women who don’t feel confident know they are not alone, providing someone they can relate to in this area. The book offers realistic advice regarding a wide range of challenges women face relating to confidence.

I really like the fact that Joyce encourages us to be positive about everything. For example, she wrote:

“Even if you fail, it is better to have tried than to
have regrets wishing you did.”

This book encourages us to try something new as we will never know unless we try. It also references biblical scripture, encouraging us to move forward in our faith regardless of how we feel.

The Confident Woman contains many lessons for us all. It is all about stepping out of our comfort zones and being bold. Joyce challenges us to be the people God wants us to be. I give this book an overall rating of 4 out of 5 stars.
