Joel Osteen presents a message of hope. Through his experience
as a pastor he has encountered problems people have struggled
with since the beginning of time. No matter what situation you
find yourself in, Joel Osteen has a spiritual solution. He draws
on biblical references and his own inner wisdom and life
One of the major points in "Becoming a Better You," is
the issue of how to change defeating messages into life-changing
affirmations. Instead of focusing on weaknesses and faults, you
learn to speak to yourself in more positive ways.
"Becoming a better you is all in how you choose to view
life." ~ Joel Osteen
The section on overcoming hereditary problems with a positive
mindset is enlightening and very helpful. Some very convincing
stories show how humans have the ability to overcome illness
just by thinking differently about the problem.
Joel Osteen encourages you to stop dwelling on negative thoughts
so you can reach your full potential. In order to fulfill your
destiny you have to leave your past mistakes behind you as you
reach into the future by following spiritual wisdom.
Some of the areas covered in this book include: divorce,
parenting, marriage, addictions, relationships, illness,
lifestyle choices, goals, happiness, habits, handling criticism,
peace, dreams, kindness, success, God's love, blessings, career
choices, health, aging, forgiveness of sin, compassion,
challenges, miracles and self-improvement through a deeper
relationship with God. Each section ends with "Action
"Today I will reach for something beyond where I am
presently. I will actively pursue new goals, keeping them out in
front of me, and expecting to meet them." ~ pg. 376, Action
The most powerful idea in this book is about how you can change
your life through remembering that you are a child of Almighty
God. With God's help you can overcome your problems and live the
life you have imagined.

Love Your Life
A Cozy Read filled with Wisdom
"I will be faithful with the talent, time, and opportunity
God has given me. I realize that when I make the most of what I
have God will multiply it and give me more." ~ pg. 107
Victoria Osteen has written a beautiful book that provides an
honest look at how we live our lives. Imagine you were able to sit
down on a comfy couch with your favorite tea and a delicious
cookie while Victoria spoke to you about what is truly important
in life. This book is a very cozy read and especially encouraging.
Each chapter presents another facet of Victoria's wisdom gained
from years of real-life experience.
In one chapter you may learn about forgiveness and in another
learn how to treat your spouse, children, friends or maybe even a
stranger who needs someone to listen. This book explains how to
treat others with the respect they deserve. It also focuses on how
you should treat yourself because if you can't love yourself how
can you give love to anyone else?
Throughout this book there are meaningful discussions about what
may be holding you back from your best life. We all need reminders
on how to live a spirit-filled life and by reading this book you
will be changed in subtle ways.
I'd highly recommend this book to men or women who want to take
their lives to the next level. A place where you feel joy and the
peace of God in your daily life. If you read this book with an
open heart it is sure to bless you. I've read all of Joel Osteen's
books and this one is equally as good and very well written. You
can truly hear the voice of Victoria Osteen in every sentence.
