Book Review: In Search of Wisdom Author: Joyce Meyer

Updated: Dec 15, 2021

The book of Proverbs is a treasure trove of spiritual and practical wisdom that equips us to live our best lives. Knowledge is important, but if it isn't converted into action, it fails to create transformational change in our lives. It is important to gain a thoughtful and practical understanding of the seven foundational principles in the book of Proverbs:

  • Wisdom,

  • Understanding,

  • Prudence,

  • Knowledge,

  • Discretion,

  • Discernment, and

  • Fear of the Lord.

If we desire to possess these qualities, we must make a commitment to a deeper understanding and implementation of these values in our daily lives.

Featuring inspiring questions to promote thoughtful reflection, In Search of Wisdom will enlighten you with God's understanding and teach you the foundational principles and secure God's help in practicing them.

Tell us a bit about yourself:

I am a child of God, born again at the age of 11 so my whole life has been around the church. I love the Lord who I came to know as daddy because we were raised by a single mom. I am a mother to a beautiful baby girl the star to my existence. I have been married twice and divorced and so I am simply looking at rebuilding life for me and my daughter. I work for an aviation company and simply enjoy my job.

Name of Book:

In Search of Wisdom


Joyce Meyer

What drew you to read this book:

I am a big fan of Joyce Meyer's teachings, and previous publications proved to be most intriguing.

What impact did this book have on your life:

As a mother , one is always looking for signs that you are doing well raising your child and at the same time how to govern your life, so the title became very appealing. Basically being led into a mindset of "doing now what we will be happy with later in life" . As someone who is constantly aware of the opinions of others it can cause a lot of paralyzing anxiety when you try to think about what that right thing is. I was drawn to chapter 3 titled "Be satisfied with not knowing" for instance, I related to being addicted to wanting to have reasons behind everything that happened. This book has given me nuggets of wisdom to at least begin to think in the way that moves me into the right direction according to God's plan.

In a paragraph, what is the main point of the book:

This book revealed some of the gems God has for us in the book of Proverbs, addressing areas in life that tend to impacts us most. She has taken each chapter in the book of Proverbs and shows the readers how God is guiding us against our sinful nature. This book highlights the need for our hearts to be led and instructed by God' wisdom. Some of the chapters that we browse over in the Book of Proverbs , the book gives you an opportunity to unpack each one. I would preferred a little more unpacking especially with " being easy to get along with" that portion for me left a room of mis-interpretation and or it being misunderstood.

Who would benefit from reading this book:

Ladies Group

Youth Group

Young Adults Group

Home Groups

Book Clubs

A good book to start discussions points because it has great wisdom nuggets.
