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'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.
