Publisher's Summary

Dodie Osteen, mother of Joel Osteen, gives listeners a personal account of her extraordinary life and shares what she has learned about love, faith, and family.

As the wife of 44 years of the late Pastor John Osteen, founder of Lakewood Church, Dodie Osteen stood as a wife, mother, and first lady of the church, even when life felt anything but steady. Today she continues to stand by her son, Pastor Joel Osteen, and the rest of their family as they lead Lakewood.

In this revealing memoir, Dodie shares that her path, though glorious, has not always been easy. She shows an intimate look at such life-altering experiences as contracting polio as a child, raising five children, battling cancer, and losing her husband, all with the beautiful heart and sense of humor she displays to thousands at Lakewood and nationwide at Night of Hope events. While recounting her journey, Dodie offers listeners meaningful life lessons applicable to their own lives.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    I can see where Joel gets his talent. She has a beautiful speaking voice,
    A strong faith and seems very down to earth. I really enjoyed listening to this heart felt book.

    "
    What a story of Christianity, and perseverance!"

    Better as a Christian life than a life without Christ in it. He is our Savior and lives to intervene in our behalf. What a living testimony, what tragedy, what overcoming ability in Christ's name. Love this family, the Osteen's, and their application of the Lord's word into their everyday lives.

    Lover of life and lover of books! I read/listen to a wide range (many) but my favorite non fiction are self-help and autobiographies.

    Story
    "Highly recommended - like listening to her heart"

    I highly recommend this book. I loved her other book - Healed of Cancer and read it on a regular basis and give it away to those in need.

    This book provides the history and base for her life and faith chronicling not only her life but the life of her late husband and their parents.

    Dodie provides an insight into not only their spiritual journey but an overall life journey as they grew in the Lord and handled multiple obstacles for their faith. She goes into many life lessons she learned as a daughter, spouse, mom, and grandma. Listening to her tell the story made it 'real' and from the 'heart'.

    I really enjoyed listening to Mrs. Dodi. You can hear her feelings in her voice. I've heard many of the stories in sermons but it was nice to get more detail and back stories.

    It is a real vivid account of faith in Jesus Christ and a revealing look into some of the stories about one of the most effective,successful and influential Christian families of all time. Gives much context and background to the people behind the great Lakewood Church.
