What drew you to read this book:

The title of the book immediately grabbed my attention. Joel Osteen has a knack for motivating people to be their best selves in a world where fear and failure loom large.

What impact did this book have on you?:

God's Word has the power to push us past our feelings of fear and failure and move us into a spacious place of freedom. And instead of operating in survival mode, we begin to operate out of a place of strength.

In a paragraph, what is the main point of the book:

There is power in the words that we speak over ourselves, so instead of speaking words of doom and gloom - we need to start declaring the Word of Life over our lives. God's Word is full of life-giving promises.

Who would benefit from reading this book?:

This book is full of positive affirmations. But we need to read it in full view of God's Word and His grace alone. If you're looking to be encouraged, this book is for you. As long as you reflect on God's Word first and foremost.
