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. From her battle with breast cancer to the struggles of everyday life, Joyce speaks openly and practically about her experiences so others can apply what she has learned to their lives. 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.
Joyce holds an earned PhD in theology from Life Christian University in Tampa, Florida; an honorary doctorate in divinity from Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma; and an honorary doctorate in sacred theology from Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Arizona.

One of Joyce Meyers books that i read that helped me to believe that God had a far greater purpose for me.
Great book! Its a great starter for learning how to forgive yourself and others. I have read it once and I intend to read it again, It taught me that forgiveness is actually a lot deeper than we think it is, by having so many wounds which need to be healed as we do it. It shows what it is like to be rejected, and how we even suffer with this when we lack forgiveness. A good read and I recommend it to anyone with old wounds.
This book is excellent. I strongly reccomend it for anyone struggling, especially with past abuse. It is biblical, personal and points toward a victorious life in Christ - not the tolerable reality we settle for. Take this journey and you will see God's mighty power to touch you personally and heal.
