Anything Joyce Meyer writes is worth reading, and The Confident Woman is no exception. This book addresses the true meaning of confidence, which is being confident in our ability to do anything through Christ. Ms. Meyer has been heartbroken to observe that many women live in a spirit of fear, which translates into a lack of joy. Throughout her book, the author discusses in-depth how to achieve a more confident outlook and how to banish fear.

She begins by discussing a woman's place in God's eyes, which is not less than or subservient to that of men. She then talks about women in ministry and her viewpoints on the woman's role in ministering to others. The Seven Secrets of a Confident Woman make up the heart and soul of Ms. Meyer's message. From knowing you are loved to avoiding comparisons to taking action, these concepts are not ground-breaking or new, but the tone and conversational style of the writing will help all readers know that these ideas apply directly to them.

After talking about confidence, fear is addressed. What it is, how to overcome a spirit of fear, and the relationship between stress and fear, are only a portion of what is presented. Scripture is used throughout the text to clarify and emphasize each point, and anecdotal stories help to personalize the information. The Confident Woman is a beautifully written book that will speak to the heart of every woman and help her to realize her value in Christ.
