Publisher's Summary

Engrained in our culture is the belief that unbending discipline is the only sure way to success. You must go to the gym five times a week, never order the dessert, and don't even think about buying that dress you keep staring at in the store window. Breaking from such a regimented lifestyle is a sign of weakness, right? Wrong! -- and Joyce wants to tell us why...
Though setting rules in our lives are important, it's just as important that we break them from time-to-time. Structure is a powerful tool, but when diverging from your own goals is seen as catastrophic, it can have a hugely negative effect on us. Balance is a core value in life and every once in awhile we deserve to indulge in a guilty pleasure or two. So don't feel bad about straying from your goals every once-in-awhile and in fact, embrace it: eat the cookie and buy the shoes!

Priorities

What did you love best about Eat the Cookie...Buy the Shoes?

It reminded me to treat myself with respect as much or more than others

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

Give myself a break. I am not even designed to be perfect, it is a expectation that I allow myself and others to put on me

Eat the Cookie

What was most disappointing about Joyce Meyer’s story?

Fantastic speaker at conferences but I find her books boring to read and listen to, and don't keep my attention.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointed in the audio. I found the narrator's voice irritating and would never buy an audio with this narrator again no matter how good the content.

Any additional comments?

Joyce Meyer is a fantastic, engaging, lively speaker at her conferences. Don't write her off because her books may be dull, boring or read in an irritating manner. I would recommend listening to her speaking recorded live at a conference rather than books.

I should have done my research

I bought this audiobook on a whim, but I should have looked into the author first. This book is for Christians, packed with Bible verses and the belief that the listener is a fellow Christian. There are so many references to God I was surprised He wasn't mentioned in the publisher's synopsis.

I am an atheist, and while she makes her feelings on atheists clear, I tried to keep an open mind. My score is based on the fact that I was not the intended audience.
