The title comes from research that shows people are happiest on Fridays. Pastor Joel Osteen writes how we can generate this level of contentment and joy every day of the week.
Known as a man who maintains a constant positive outlook in spite of circumstances, Osteen has described this message as a core theme of his ministry. Combining his personal experiences with scriptural insights and principles for true happiness, he shows listeners how every day can hold the same promise and opportunities for pure joy that they experience at five o'clock on Friday.

no, just convenient to listen as i'm out and about.
his calm, placid demeanor, he's a humble man, despite his success.
focus on the good
Although I've read his other books, and listened to his sermons, this book sort of wrapped up many ways to encourage myself, and stay Positive.
... if there ever was a Must Read book, This is it for Sure!!
The more I listen the more I realize just how much I need to. Joel does a great job in this book, and it gives you a cornerstone that everyone needs in there life.
Buy it, you will not be sorry! On the contrary, you'll be much better off for it.
I actually have the book and although it's good, there's no comparison to hearing Joel speak to you. It's as if it's just you and he, one on one. His personality and straight forward way really comes through with ease.
This book encourages everyone to seek happiness among themselves.
Every story seems genuine.
This is much better because there is a situation for all.
It made me think and realize that happiness is within me.
Overall, Great book
Say something about yourself!
Definitely, each chapter offers a new area of insight to help you have a clear path to happiness. From having the right focus, to the right friends, Joel does an excellent job of putting it all together! Great listen!
This audio is similar to other motivational books like Anthony Robbins very inspiring.
Genuine and clear writing
Several moments really hit home.
For spiritual reading, it's almost at the top of my list!
I've listened to Joel Osteen on TV and always found him to be excellent. I admire Joel's ability to tell real life stories that tug at your heart and deliver an inspiring message. I'm going to burn a few CD's and pass this "book" around. Thank you!
By taking parts from the Bible and incidents that has happened in his life not only brings it to life but it personalizes it too. This makes it more like I'm not in this alone that even someone as big and popular as him goes through stuff like the rest of us.
I enjoy hearing about other peoples personal trials and triumphs. It makes me feel closer to him and his family.
Anytime he speaks of his personal life but the best was when he inadvertently snuck-up on his wife when she was reading and she jumped and screamed!
This book made me feel calm and thoughtful I think I'll get another.
Joel's manner of delivering His message is very soothing and compelling at the same time. During my trying times, I just played this in the car and it helped me realize that I can and will make it through with God's guidance. It's very empowering and at the same time, helps you acknowledge the need for full trust and dependence on God. Very inspirational. Unveils certain truths which we know but just can't explain. Praise God for such an individual who allowed himself to be a vehicle for God's message.
Not yet, but now I have bookmarked all of his audiobooks. Eager to download them one by one.
Every Day a Friday ranks at the top of its category. I just started watching Joel's Sunday morning service on TV and it's now part of our family's routine. I realized that I wanted to hear more and have his messages carry with me throughout the week. I was glad to find his book here on Audible and immediately downloaded it. My commute is much more enjoyable and peaceful, all while learning new spiritual truths and stories to help change my outlook. Terrific book.
There are many but my most memorable was a story of a boy who purchased a puppy whose hind legs weren't very functional, despite the seller trying to talk him out of it. I won't spoil the reason :)
This is my first but I will definitely purchase another.
His chapter on being a people/person builder. It's easy to get focused on what I want and think I need to do and forget to take time to help those around me. I'd forgotten how much that blessing returns and Joel's stories will help keep it in the forefront of my mind on a daily basis.
If you're looking for an inspirational book with a spiritual basis look no further and pickup Joel's book immediately.
The Inspiration and manner in which Joel Osteen encourages his listeners/readers
How great it made me feel. It put things in a Godly/optimistic perspective
He seems very passionate about his calling.
It made me feel great! I may listen to it again.
It always amazes me just how Osteen is so positive in all his teachings. i could even 'hear' him smiling throughout the audio! While listening on the way to work, it really helped me to have a different outlook in facing work everyday. It allowed me to see that I should see all situations differently and to find the rose in the thorns (so to speak). This book is a definite must in anyone's library!
