The average person has 70,000 thoughts every day, and many of those trigger a corresponding emotion. No wonder so many of us often feel like we’re controlled by our emotions, and that our lives would be much improved if we controlled them.

In Living beyond Your Feelings, Joyce Meyer examines the gamut of feelings that human beings experience. She discusses the way the brain processes and stores memories and thoughts, and she explains how we can manage our reactions to those emotions, one at a time. In doing so, she gives readers a toolbox for managing the way they react to the onslaught of feelings that can wreak havoc on their lives.

In this book, Meyer blends the wisdom of the Bible with the latest psychological research and discusses the four personality types, their influence on one’s outlook, the impact of stress on physical and emotional health, the power of memories, the influence of words on emotions, the power of replacing reactions with pro-actions, and the benefits of happiness.

    " Overall, this is a good book. I love Joyce's no-nonsense style of writing. I did think some of the chapters were better than others - but maybe that's just b/c they were more applicable for me. This is a good companion for the Battlefield of the Mind books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nikki | 1/28/2014

    " It was okay. She made a lot of good points that I try to incorporate into my life. However, i wish she would have included more Biblical support. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol Rich | 1/20/2014

    " I love hearing Joyce Meyer speak and reading books she has written. A survivor of childhood sexual abuse by her father, Joyce writes about the power replacing negative reactions with pro-actions, the influence of our thoughts on emotions, and the healing power of forgiveness and God's love. She a number of personal experiences about her recovery and shows the reader how to become happier and experience greater peace of mind. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 1/16/2014

    " I already knew and try to use alot of the strategies and thought processes this book offers. But it was great to read about it all and re-familarize myself with it. And most importantly to let go and remind myself that although I can't change the past or how I feel, but that I can choose the way act about it. I love how Joyce always gets to the point and makes things simple to understand. Many books seem to give good details-but they rarely ever put things simply so that you GET IT without haveing to really think it through and analyze it all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brenda Browning | 1/10/2014

    " This is the best Joyce Meyer book I've ever read. Of course, God showed me right when I needed it most. She always makes me really understand things in a way that I often overlook. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kammie | 1/1/2014

    " So far this book has been very enlightening. I never realized how emotions play a huge part in not only my life but the lives around me. If we don't start to understand ourselves and our emotions, it will begin to control us in everything we do. It is an interesting book and I can't wait to finish it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 12/25/2013

    " Has some good advice as far as thinking before you talk, and react to things that happen in life. I do love the references to the Bible. However, there could have been a lot less references and the same point be made. "
