In this program, available only on audio, author and narrator Joel Osteen inspires listeners with thoughts on how to live in God's favor. His illustrations and commentary come from his most popular sermons. Subjects range from letting go of the past, not limiting God, and acquiring a grateful heart to tips on mood control, relaxation, and living within God's joy. Osteen's high-energy and often-humorous delivery combine with his hopeful "can-do" messages as they are delivered to the membership of America's largest church community--Lakewood Church.
