About the Author

Joel Osteen is the senior pastor of Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas. Listed by several sources as America's largest and fastest-growing congregation, Lakewood Church has approximately 45,000 adult attendees every week. Millions more watch Joel's messages as they are broadcast on national and international television networks. He resides in Houston with his wife, Victoria, and their children.

More About the Author

Joel Osteen is a native Texan and the Pastor of Lakewood Church, which according to Church Growth Today is America's largest and fastest growing church with over 38,000 attendees. On July 16, 2005 after completing $95 million dollars in renovations, Joel moved Lakewood Church into its new 16,000 seat home -- the former Compaq Center which is now the largest regularly-used worship center in the United States. According to Nielsen Media Research, Joel is the most watched inspirational figure in America. His weekly sermon is broadcast into television markets across the U.S. where it is viewed by seven million Americans each week and more than 20 million each month. His weekly broadcast is also seen in almost 100 nations around the world. In 2004 his first book, Your Best Life Now was released by Time Warner debuting at the top of the New York Times Bestsellers List and quickly rising to #1. It remained on the New York Times Bestseller for more than 2 years and has sold more than 4 million copies. Most recently, Joel was named as one of Barbara Walters' "10 Most Fascinating People of 2006" and he was selected as the "Most Influential Christian in 2006" by the readers of Church Report Magazine. The son of John Osteen -- a highly respected minister of the Gospel and the founder of Lakewood Church -- Joel attended Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma where he studied radio and television communications. In 1982, Joel returned to Houston and founded Lakewood's television ministry where he produced John Osteen's televised sermons for 17 years until January 1999 when his father passed away. For many years John Osteen encouraged Joel to preach, but he always declined preferring to work behind the scenes. In early 1999, Joel felt compelled to accept his father's invitation and he preached his first sermon on January 17th of that year. Little did anyone know that would be the last Sunday of John Osteen's life. Two weeks later Joel began preaching and later that year was installed as the new Senior Pastor of Lakewood Church. Almost immediately, weekly attendance began to grow at an extraordinary rate and, in 2005 Joel moved Lakewood Church into its present location, the former Compaq Center, a 16,000 seat arena that was once home to the Houston Rockets professional basketball team. Now, with his wife Victoria and the leadership staff of Lakewood, this innovative church is poised for the new millennium. Joel's extraordinary success can be found in his core message: That our God is a good God who desires to bless those who are obedient and faithful to Him through Jesus Christ. It is Joel's deepest desire that his own life be an example of that principle and that everyone who hears this message of hope and encouragement would choose to accept God's goodness and mercy and to become all that God wants them to be.

Every Day A Friday Journal is a seven week journey in uplifting your spirit. It is the perfect companion to your quite time with God. It will awaken you to a happier day than the day before.

Contemplate on the answers and thoughts you want to share each day in your journal. All it takes is five minutes a day. Surely we can spare five minutes from our busy daily schedule. Have you laughed lately? From what I read it is actually good for your health. On my main blog I have a cute little anime on my sidebar with the verse.. "A happy heart makes the face cheerful,..." Proverbs 15:13 . I laugh out loud every time I see it.

I wanted to share with you the titles of the chapters in this journal...

Week One: Don't Give Away Power
Week Two: Know What To Ignore
Week Three: Live Without Crutches
Week Four: Travel Light
Week Five: Laugh Often
Week Six: Be A Dream Releaser
Week Seven: Celebrate Yourself

I recommend you take this daily retreat into this journal with God. Don't forget to Laugh Today!

I rate this book a 4 out of 5.

The "Everyday a Friday Journal" is one of the most positive inspirational books ever. It's well thought out with Biblical references, secular quotations and easy to do personal development exercises. This book is easy to read and hard to 'put down'. It would be a valuable reference book in anyone's home library. Every Day a Friday Journal: How to Be Happier 7 Days a Week

I am a huge fan of Joel Osteen and motivational tone of his words. My wife bought this book for me while I was deployed to Afghanistan and it served as a huge motivational input for my day. I liked it so much and wanted to spread the word that I bought it for one of the Marines I worked with as well. The Journal part was a little different but it allowed me to put what I felt while I was reading what Joel wrote.

Although the format was different than what I expected in the first few pages, I soon understood the why and it made me interact more in each page with the capability to journal if wanted.
Great book to read in one sitting or at a day at a time to reflect.

A very uplifting book, a must read for everyone. You don't have to be born again to understand anything he says. I bought many copies to share with friends and family. The best part is that you get to journal in it,which is a great coping tool for everyday ups and downs.
