    Where does Every Day a Friday rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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!

    Story
    "A Feel Good Listen"
    What did you love best about Every Day a Friday?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoy hearing about other peoples personal trials and triumphs. It makes me feel closer to him and his family.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    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!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book made me feel calm and thoughtful I think I'll get another.

    Story
    "Restoration at last!"
    What made the experience of listening to Every Day a Friday the most enjoyable?

    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.


    Have you listened to any of Joel Osteen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not yet, but now I have bookmarked all of his audiobooks. Eager to download them one by one.

    Story
    "Does Not Disappoint"
    Where does Every Day a Friday rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Every Day a Friday?

    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 :)


    Have you listened to any of Joel Osteen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first but I will definitely purchase another.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    If you're looking for an inspirational book with a spiritual basis look no further and pickup Joel's book immediately.

    "NEVER LET ME DOWN"

    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!

    "progression of the mind body and soul !!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Every Day a Friday to be better than the print version?

    his writings are getting better and better with every book and sunday preaching!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Every Day a Friday?

    his is one of the clear minded individuals that is the neighbor next door type that i would enjoy spending an evening with talking and going back and forth with...


    What about Joel Osteen’s performance did you like?

    all his performances are great and he has matured into a world leader not politacally but spiritually and mentally


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    on different occasions he makes you both cry and laugh and sometimes just go hhhmmm.
    but mostly he makes you say thank you thank you thank you and live in gratitude for what i have and will receive on a daily basis


    Any additional comments?

    on my bucket list there are a few items that have to do with mr olsteen,
    1. go to houston one day and attend a sunday service
    2. sit and chat with joel and shake his hand and just talk about anything that we both come up with, if only for several minutes but just to look into his eyes and experience the peace and understanding he has
    3. be able to share my opinions and blessings with people and have the touch he has to reach others and share the energy of the holy spirit

    thank you to all that are part of the ministry of joel olsteen and his family and friends

    and see ya next time you come back to miami!! you where great.........
