    "Life Changer"

    I finished listening to this audio book while driving to work everyday. I have to say it changed my life. I truly enjoyed the book and starting to apply what I learned everyday.
    I am glad I decided to give this book a try. I know it has made positive impact to my life.
    I recommend the book for everyone, especially those whom living their lives with criticism, negative emotions, and ungratefulness.
    Three things that I tried to apply everyday while I am still alive.

    1. Thanks someone today.
    2. Forgive someone today
    3. Encourage or compliment someone today

    Not only is my spiritual healthiness has a tremendous boost, but also my physical health as well. My chess doesn't tighten up as often, since I feel less stress and feel good about my life. My shoulder stops aching since I don't hold a grudge and stays with a positive attitude every minute I am awake. My teenage kids are seeing changes in me, since I stop being critical with them anymore. They began to talk to me more and share more stuff of their lives which I wouldn't think they would before. The biggest change is my relationship toward my spouse. We are more in love and began to enjoy talking and laughing together. We value our time together so much, that we increased our texting to each other tremendously when we are apart. It all started with me to have a positive, thankful, and uncomplaining attitude everyday. I hope I have helped you to pick up this book/audio book. I can only imaging if everyone I face each day have the same attitude as me, how much better the world would be.

    "Excellent book! A joy to listen too."

    Awesome book, Joel is a joy to listen to! He put many a smile on my face, day after day listening to him and his stories. This book really opens your eyes to things you do every day that you could do differently to affect not only your life but hopefully another person's as well in a more positive manner.

    "Inspiring!!"

    My first Audiobook, or even any book by Joel Osteen. I'm a regular watcher of his Sunday sermons, of which you will see some overlap in this book. Overall, if you want to be encouraged, challenged it's a great listen!!

    Uplifting! Inspiring! Enpowering!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    no characters, it's all about the Lord!

    So much I can't list them all but one thing I'll never forget is that people need to change the way they think. Stay postive and speak positive things into your life and it will change your circumstances.

    "GREAT WAY TO DRIVE TO WORK"

    I love this book. Many ideas and memorable stories to help deal with daily stumbling blocks. His voice is soothing and his story telling funny and heartwarming. I felt better the moment I started listening. If you aren't a faith based soul you'll still find many helpful tips you can use everyday.

    "Great words of encouragement for anyone!"

    I like this book because it is filled with words of encouragement. I feel that Pastor Joel does a good job of reading his book to you. I suppose that one criticism could be that this book is too positive and does not take into account the real world. I disagree - Pastor Joel helps you adjust your mind so that you can get through those bad times and not let others 'bad attitudes' put a damper on your day. I am glad I got this one.

    "Simple truths one should never forget"

    I enjoyed listening to this book very much. One can listen to a random spot and always find a simple yet underappreciated truth about life and its meaning. I recommend this book as a wonderful 'spirit lifter'.
