Publisher's Summary

"Words are a big deal. They are containers for power, and we have to decide what kind of power we want our words to carry," says Joyce Meyer in Change Your Words, Change Your Life. "I believe that our words can increase or decrease our level of joy. They can affect the answers to our prayers and have a positive or negative effect on our future.... One might say that our words are a movie screen that reveals what we have been thinking and the attitudes we have."

Building on the premises of Power Thoughts and Living Beyond Your Emotions, she examines the tremendous power of words - which are the vehicles that convey our thoughts and emotions - and provides a series of guidelines for making sure that our talk is constructive, healthy, healing, and used to good results. Topics include:

  • The impact of words
  • How to tame your tongue
  • How to be happy
  • When to talk and when not to talk
  • Speaking faith and not fear
  • The corrosion of complaints
  • Do you really have to give your opinion?
  • The importance of keeping your word
  • The power of speaking God's word
  • How to have a smart mouth

In a "Dictionary of God's Word" at the end of the book, Joyce provides dozens of scripture verses, arranged by topic, that she recommends reading and saying out loud as one way of using and claiming healing words.

Completely shocked, but pleasantly surprised

I purchased this book not knowing who the author was, so I didn't know she was a Christian speaker. The book description doesn't mention that this book is extremely biblical based, so I was completely shocked when I started hearing scripture after scripture blaring out of my car stereo. I'm a new Christian and have been getting more heavily involved with the Word, so it was a pleasant surprise for me, but I can imagine that one who wasn't expecting this and is NOT a Christian would probably be pretty ticked.

That said, I absolutely love the book. I find the scripture references particularly helpful since I am not all that familiar with the Bible and would have no clue where to look for some of these things.

Overall, I would say it's probably going to be a big life changer for me.

(On a side note, the speaker sounds like she's from Boston...it's not overly annoying, but it's not the most pleasant listening experience... no offense to Bostonians.)

Joyce is amazing

This is more then just another positive speaking book this is a wake up call. Of COURSE changing your words will change your life! I have listeneid to this repeatedly because I want it to sink in. There are many valuable insights in this book and it is well worth listening to. It touches on silencing the negative inner voice, not listening to the drainers and listening to and understanding what GOD says about you.

Good content, poor narrator.

Truly Life Changing

This book IS truly life changing. It is thought provoking, practical and helpful. I especially liked that Joyce took the time to include several lists of confessions, declarations and convictions to help me use and recall the lessons. I am grateful indeed for the useful guidance. Thank you Joyce !

An Epiphany for Me

No it's too long to listen to in one sitting. I found it soothing to listen before bed, and setting my Kindle to sleep at 60 minutes, just in case I dropped off.

Your Words Definitely Have Power

If you could sum up Change Your Words, Change Your Life in three words, what would they be?

Be mindful of your words. They indeed have power

What other book might you compare Change Your Words, Change Your Life to and why?

I enjoy positive books that encourage you to be mindful of who you have in your inner circle, how you think, speak and act in life. I strongly believe God can help us tame our tongue and enjoy books that reiterate this point.

What does Sandra McCollom bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She brings some enthusiasm to the book while reading the passage. Although, I would have enjoyed the book better if Joyce Meyer read it.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, I wanted to take the information in and comprehend what the audible was saying

Awesome teaching

Joyce delivers the word of God directly to you heart and mind. Praise be the Jesus for the works he does on earth to help us. Be transformed by this message. I once was lost but now am found through the revelation of the scriptures delivered directly to my heart. Thank you Lord may all the glory and praise be yours
