Joyce Meyer

‘Living the Life you Love’ by Joyce Meyer’ is the first book by the author we read at Bookclub and More. It is also the first time I have read a Joyce Meyer book from cover to cover. A few years ago, I purchased ‘Battlefiled of the mind’ for my mum and then “borrowed” a few years later to read and never got round to finishing the book!

Having read ‘Living the life you live’,  it was good and the Joyce is a prolific writer! Looking at her Amazon author account there are over 10 pages of books to look through.  She has written over a 100 books that have often featured in the New York Times Bestseller list.

It’s November, and in the UK we are having a general election on 12th December 2019.  I feel like all we have been doing is voting for the last few years! Plus the idea off a December election is off putting. There are lots of things to do in December and furthermore it cold!

To Be Read Oct 2019 We Need To Talk About Race: Understanding the Black Experience in White Majority Churches

TBR – October 2019 ‘We Need to talk about Race: Understanding the Black Experience in White Majority Churches’ by Ben Lindsay

It was also nice hear about the book directly from the author, hear his reasons for writing the book and Ben also shared some personal experiences.
