Joel Osteen Become 
a Better You

Become a Better You

5.0 out of 5 stars Fulfill Your Destiny, November 8, 2007
"You have something to offer that nobody else has." ~ Joel Osteen

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 experiences.

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 Points."

"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 Point 3

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

5.0 out of 5 stars A Cozy Read filled with Wisdom, September 20, 2009
"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.
