Joyce Meyer is my hero. Countless times she has helped me keep things in perspective, she has even, in many ways, saved my life. Joyce has had made such a positive impact on my life, and I can truly say that I will carry her teachings with me forever.
I am not religious. However, I am completely devoted to God. Joyce doesn’t miss the point when it comes to talking about bettering the self and developing a closer connection with God. When it comes to religious people, there are some that miss the point (i.e, breed hate or chaos because the bible supposedly infers that it is okay to judge others). But Joyce, after really watching her over time, I can tell gets the point.
She knows that to love God means to love all people. She knows that instead of judging people and making them feel bad about their imperfections, we should should love others regardless, not judge them.
Joyce has helped me in countless ways, and the best way for me to thank her and to thank God for bringing her message into my life, is to be the best me I could possibly be. It is to realize that I am blessed, and to bless others.

Loving Life and Loving Yourself by Joyce Meyer
I’m not religious, but she does make some very good points regarding self-esteem, loving life, and loving yourself.
I notice that there are a lot of women who seek the wrong kind of attention from men/women. I only speak from my own experience, and when I was younger I did the same thing. I wore very revealing clothing, and feel that at the time it was because I wanted attention, any attention.
Yes, I did it. Does that make it right? No. Did I respect myself? No. And if you aren’t respecting your body, how can you expect others to respect it? If you are walking around with your ass hanging out of your skirt, do you really think that you are going to attract the kind of man/woman that will give you the genuine, loving attention you deserve?
I am a strong believer in the fact that we treat people how to treat us. And if we don’t respect ourselves, people wont respect us. There are some evil fuckers in this world, and plenty who would be willing to take advantage of the fact.
So please, ladies, keep it classy. Stay modest. It breaks my heart to see you degrade yourselves to that level as I once did, and you don’t have to make the same mistake.
