    Excellent book

    This is my first reviwe of a book on and although I purchased the book hard copy, it has really inspired me. I look forward to reading just a small portion of it each day as it gets me on my way. I like how it relates to the NIV Bible as it is the one that I read on a daily basis. So I can definitely relate to what is said.

    Definitely worth the $$$$.

    I Love, Love, Love this Book

    Dear BN customers!

    Let me just say that this book has proven to me that it is possible to enjoy reading. This book is a "breath of fresh air", and the best part is that it is Bible-based. The essential questions after each chapter really stimulates the reader to examine themselves, and to realize how much God really loves all of us. I love the fact that the author relates life experiences with those written in the Bible. Reading passages from this book feels like I am in Bible study every day, and when I close the book, I feel more confident about God's love for me. I love, love, love this book!

    Inspiriational book on Prayer & More

    Yolanda Adams with Lavaille Lavette have penned a very special, encouraging, inspirational book. I loved her open and honest approach, as well as how she shared her heart and the inspirational stories. She says, "I've learned we rarely look like the destiny inside of us! God didn't see Gideon as he was, but as he could be." She talks about how God views us as opposed to how we view ourselves. Good stuff.

    Some of the topics discussed in this book are the power of faith, love, forgiveness, confession, praise, prayer, peace, protection and victory, just to name a few. This book can be used in a couple of different ways:

    It can be used in your devotional time to start your day with an inspirational story and how to apply the message to your life; You can just read the inspirational stories by amazing people such as Billy Graham, T.D. Jakes, Robin Roberts, Chris Gardner and many more; or You can use this book for a personal study time to help you dig deeper into the bible stories and apply God's principles to your life. Yolanda Adams provides a summary at the end of each chapter and then has questions to ask yourself and help you take a look at scripture in a new light.

    I liked the fact that Yolanda had the summary, scripture passage, and the 10 Pensive Points at the end of each chapter. She really helped you to think about the story and take a closer look at the peoples lives she talked about and their situations. It was encouraging and challenging.

    The personal stories and bible accounts were short, easy to understand and packed a powerful punch. She also helped you apply the passage of scripture to your life in a segment called Power Passage. These stories helped you see how God works differently in everyone's life. Yolanda also provides a prayer to give you the confidence and guidance to take the next step in your personal relationship with God.

    I'm so thankful to have read and received a review copy of this book. I'll be reading this book again; there were so many gold nuggets inside these pages.

    Uplifting, inspiring and a true testament to faith

    Believe it or not, I have never heard of Yolanda Adams until I was recently given a chance to read Points of Power for review. I am very sorry I haven't experienced her before now. I understand her music is beautiful and her radio show is uplifting. She herself seems very uplifting in Points of Power. I have read through a lot of the sections and they read as short Bible readings/devotions for each full of her points of power about the specific topic. She gives points to think about and journal about if you desire to do that. But most of all her hope and belief in God shine through in each little lesson. I feel her positive vibe throughout this book and how she credits herself and her life to God. It is beautiful and uplifting to read. I look forward to continuing reading the sections and revisiting them later today when I need a pick-me-up.

    Full of great lessons and thoughts, Points of Power is a wonderful book to read and enjoy.
