Pauline Joyce Hutchison Meyer, more commonly known as Joyce Meyer (born on June 4, 1943) is a Charismatic Christian author and speaker. Her television and radio programs air in 25 languages in 200 countries, and she has written over 70 books on Christianity. Joyce and her husband Dave have been married since January 7, 1967, have four grown children, and live near St. Louis, Missouri. Her ministry is headquartered in the St. Louis suburb of Fenton, Missouri. Joyce Meyer formerly was a member of a congregation of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod.Meyer reports that she was praying intensely while driving to work one morning in 1976 when she said she heard God call her name. She had converted to Christianity at age nine, but her unhappiness drove her deeper into her faith.

I didn’t have any knowledge. I didn’t go to church. And I had a lot of problems, and I needed somebody to kind of help me along. And I think sometimes even people who want to serve God, if they have got so many problems that they don’t think right and they don’t act right and they don’t behave right, they almost need somebody to take them by the hand and help lead them through the early years.

She says that she came home later that day from a beauty appointment “full of liquid love” and was “drunk with the Spirit of God” (and spoke in tongues) that night while at the local bowling alley.

In 1993, her husband, Dave, suggested that they start a television ministry. Initially airing on superstation WGN-TV in Chicago and BET, her program, now called Enjoying Everyday Life, reaches a large audience.

In 2004 St. Louis Christian television station KNLC, operated by the Rev. Larry Rice of New Life Evangelistic Center, dropped Meyer’s programming. Rice had been a longstanding Meyer supporter, but claimed that her “excessive lifestyle” and teachings which often go “beyond Scripture” were the impetus for canceling her program.

In 2005, Time magazine’s 25 Most Influential Evangelicals in America ranked Joyce Meyer as 17th.
