20 Ways to Make Every Day Better: Simple, Practical Changes with Real Results, by Joyce Meyer is an inspirational book about focusing on a life of joy and contentment.
The author writes about how everyone has tough days and difficult situations, yet personal reactions to these circumstances are quite vital. Also, Meyer expresses her concern about people living with these situations dictating their lives, rather than living a life of hopefulness and joyfulness with Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
According to the book summary: "Our impulse is to write today off and hope for a better tomorrow. However, this creates a hard pattern to break. One terrible day easily turns into many and soon we're living a life far from what God has in mind for us. A new transforming sense of excitement, happiness, and contentment in our lives is possible when we pursue God's goodness each day."
It's written in a conversational tone with the author's personal experiences, stories from friends, biblical illustrations, quotes, and scripture verses interspersed throughout the book.
This book is divided into four main parts: When You Awake, New Steps to Take, Patterns to Break, and Before It's Too Late. These parts are divided into twenty chapters, which reflect the book's title of 20 Ways to Make Every Day Better. The chapters include the following sections: Things to Remember and Suggestions for Putting...into Practice.
20 Ways to Make Every Day Better is geared towards all ages, from young adults to older generations, particularly women. It's an encouraging book that challenges people to focus on their lives and making every day better.
