Daily Optimism Feb 7, 2007
Although I would consider myself more spiritual, rather than religious, I think Joel does an excellent job focusing on scripture and thoughts for the day. I read this daily---sometimes more than one thought as they are themed by chapters. I love his light, uplifting thoughts. I always seem to read the verse that is appropriate for the day. Great book, that is wonderful in bite sized pieces so as to process the thoughts thoroughly. I would highly recommend this book for someone looking for uplifting thoughts with a biblical basis.
Love it! Jan 31, 2007
I have YBLN book and workbook also, but this book is great for anyone who doesn't like to or can't find time to read. The illustrations are beautiful and in just a few minutes you can read a message that you can carry with you through the day. I would like to buy one for all of my friends and family.

Spiritually and Visually Beautiful Way to Keep Focused on God Jan 2, 2007
I enjoyed reading Your Best Life Now, being especially impressed by the combination of Christian Gospel and modern psychology. Having introduced my wife to Joel Osteen through listening to one of his television sermons, I was pleasantly surprised to receive a copy of this book from my wife as a Christmas gift. It was most welcome, and I treasure the book even more now that I've spent a week with it.
The book has seven parts, each one being about the right length for a nice Bible study in the morning or evening. Here are the seven parts:
1. Enlarge Your Vision 2. Develop a Healthy Self-Image 3. Discover the Power of Your Thoughts and Words 4. Let Go of the Past 5. Find Strength Through Adversity 6. Live to Give 7. Choose to Be Happy
Now, who wouldn't like to do better in those seven dimensions?
The book has an amazing design. One facing page will have a gorgeous photograph from nature or of a person (or people) with Scripture printed on the least interesting part of the image. The other facing page will have a brief text (a short of mini sermon) that develops one sub point for that part. For instance, page 18 has a brooding sunset over an island with dark water in the foreground. The two quotes on that image are:
"Everything is possible for him who believes." -- Mark 9:23 "It shall be done to you according to your faith." -- Matthew 9:29
The text page (19) addresses "With God on Your Side" as its subject. The text ends with the conclusion: "Eliminate a barely-get-by mentality and let God's seed take root."
If you liked Your Best Life Now, you'll treasure this book as a great way to stay in touch with those messages and thoughts.
If you haven't read Your Best Life Now and don't like to read full-length books, this book is a fine and beautiful substitute for you.
May God bless you as you read, absorb, and apply these wonderful lessons!
