Conflict Free Living: How To Build Healthy Relationships For Life by Joyce Meyer is about purging strife out of life and replacing it with peace and a continuing state of well being. Meyer reviews all of the various human negations like bitterness, fear, hate, anger, rebellion, unrest and negativity. At bottom, strife and stress are very similar. Both take a huge toll on our health and sense of well being.

The alternative is to embrace peace as a condition precedent to living a stress free life with fewer illnesses and psychological maladies. Meyer points out how every relationship needs to reduce unnecessary strife and stress in order to keep afloat.

Another important step come with replacing pride with deep humility. Even our language needs to be toned down because the right words can put out fires instead of starting or inflaming them. Unhappiness in a life or even a marriage can be manifested in a whole variety of negations like overeating, drinking and other bad but controllable habits.

Meyer addresses child-rearing by stating that we need to accept children for who they are. This is a superior strategy to re-shaping them into our own vision of how we would like them to grow up.

Conflict Free Living describes the destructive effects that conflict and uncontrolled dissent can have on life itself. Recognizing the foundations of strife is half the battle to effective containment and longer term happiness in relationships.
