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!

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.
