In this book the idea that happiness is a choice is given a particularly strong emphasis. Osteen explains that Friday is the day of the week on which people are happiest because they are looking forward to the weekend with expectation. Osteen believes that if we accept every day of the week as a gift from God we can live with similar happiness and expectation every single day of the week. This book is divided into seven sections. They cover topics such as: not giving away your power, knowing what to ignore, being a dream releaser in others and celebrating yourself. In all of these chapters, Osteen lays out a generous expansive vision of faith that argues very persuasively that by changing our outlook and helping others we can greater enjoy the fruits of God's blessings. The book is a pleasure to read. It can be easily understood by readers of all ages and levels and yet its message will still appeal to highly educated people.
Many evangelicals complain that Osteen is not truly a Christian. He is quite different from what you hear in many churches. There is a lot less talk about how Jesus died on the cross for our sins and the need for repentance then you would hear in a typical Sunday sermon.Read more ›

-Know What to Ignore
-Live Without Crutches
-Be a Dream Releaser
My favorite stories that changed my life were the story about trying to drive a SUV at the Indianapolis race track. You have to run the race the way God created you to be! The second story that spoke to me was a kid named Joey that was trying to copy everyone else and all he had to be was stop and be himself. I won't post the stories because they are so good you need to read them for yourself. They will help you realize that God loves you just the way you are. He chose you!
One of my favorite quotes is:
"Our churches should not be museums to display perfect people. They should be hospitals to help the hurting and the lonely" (186).Read more ›
I think everyone needs to read this book.

I really disliked this book. I felt like Mr. Osteen came across as feeling superior to others and kind of a jerk. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Briana P.
