#1 New York Times bestselling author, Joyce Meyer, tackles the most destructive emotion that roams the battlefield of the mind: anger.
Forgiveness is easier said than done and is one of the most difficult personal issues for people to deal with. When people fail to forgive, it damages - often ruins - relationships, causes stress and other health problems and can turn one's life and work into a prison of the mind. Without forgiveness, anger and bitterness become a cauldron of poison that doesn't go away - it just gets worse.
Joyce gives readers tools that will transform the words 'I forgive you' into a statement of true meaning that can take relationships to the next level. By addressing where the need to forgive comes from, you will understand the importance of forgiveness and how to use it's power to better your life and the lives of those around you, rather than letting anger's destructive forces take over.
Building on her signature message of using the mind to master difficult emotions, Joyce Meyer focuses on the most destructive, insidious one of all: anger. It is responsible for broken relationships, sleepless nights, high blood pressure and ulcers. It destroys friendships, marriages and families, not to mention peace of mind. Anger is especially hard to handle for many Christians who have learned from childhood that "good Christians don't get angry." Meyer argues that properly handled, anger is an alert system that something is wrong and needs to be resolved.
In her latest book, she delves into the important process of forgiving, explaining its positive impact on the roots, the forms and the results of anger.
Why forgive? Joyce explains that forgiving is the only thing that can free one from the terrible turmoil that anger causes to spill over into every part of life.
Meyer understands that life will never be fair, but that is not a reason to let anger destroy our well-being and health. This is her guide to navigating that thorny territory and finding true peace.

Joyce was born Pauline Joyce Hutchison in St Louis in 1943.

She married Dave Meyer in 1967, and experienced an anointing in the spirit in 1976 after intense prayer. During the 1980s, Joyce built a local reputation as a popular Bible teacher, and started her own radio ministry. At her husband Dave's suggestion, she commenced her television ministry in 1993.
Over the years, God has provided Joyce with many opportunities to share her testimony and the life-changing message of the Gospel.

Hers is an incredible testimony of the dynamic, redeeming work of Jesus Christ. She believes and teaches that regardless of a person's background or past mistakes, God has a place for them and can help them on their path to enjoying everyday life.
