Overview

"Whatever difficulties you face," Lisa Osteen Comes encourages readers, "I believe you are made for more."

Lisa shares from her own life stories of facing birth defects, limiting labels as a young woman, an unwanted divorce, criminal attack, infertility, and broken dreams. With every story, in every chapter, she delivers biblical truths and practical help for overcoming hardship and loss.

Her down-to-earth style, humor, spiritual wisdom, and optimism engage readers, who will remember and repeat Lisa's memorable principles for daily living:

· You can't grasp the future, if you're hanging onto the past.

· You weren't made for the pit, but for the palace.

· It's not over till God says it's over.

· God's at work in you, making a masterpiece.

· Let your scars become stars.

In a time when more readers face financial peril, uncertain work lives, and feelings of fragility in a fast-paced and overwhelming world, Lisa's message shows how to not only get through the day but, how to catch new vision for a bold and bright life.

    You've got to get one, NO get 2 - one for a friend also!

    Lisa's book let's you know that life is REAL. Things happen! Things you didn't expect! Things that you couldn't control! She tells you about a bomb blowing up while she was opening a package, she tells you about falling into the pit, she shares about being heartbroken & she will tell you about discouragement. BUT she will also tell you to live boldly, to be a success, to keep on & to live your dreams!

    This book is her story & it is great reading, but don't just read it and put it on the shelf. Go back through and use it to study and get your victory in your own life because YOU ARE MADE FOR MORE!

    Highly Recommended

    This book is amazing!!! I am only a few chapters into this book. Every time I pick the book up I cant seem to put it down. (nook, Ipad)
    I personally really like it because Lisa shares personal experiences about her life. A lot of people can tell a story about life but when you tell it when you have lived it personally... it truly hits home.

    You will not be able to put this book down. Highly recommended, inspirational.

    I saw Lisa on the Joel Osteen Ministries website. As I watched Lisa speak on a live service I was very impressed. I saw her book advertised, being a fan of Joel's books I purchased the book for myself, I couldn't put it down. I then bought the audio for my sister, who is a fan of the Osteen family. Lisa this book is wonderful and by no means are you in anyones shadow, this is on your own. May God bless you for this inspirational book.

    You Are Made for More! introduces Lisa without the encounter bei

    You Are Made for More! introduces Lisa without the encounter being too obvious. Through what appears to be heartfelt narrative Lisa relevantly opens up and lets the reader into her life. Leaving you with the feeling one gets when entering a room of strangers and by the end of the night leaving with the warmth of new friends. In addition, you really get that ‘genuinely nice people’ vibe from Lisa as you do with her brother Joel and I’m guessing the other Osteen’s too. Overall, You Are Made for More! was indeed a pleasure to read. Gracefully delivered in a way that aired gentleness and femininity. Though my advice is to read this one with a Bible near to hand, because it is filled with lots of scriptural references but not the actual verses themselves. (Which probably would have made the overall messages a tad meatier). Having said that I am certain the book is everything it was supposed to be. Whilst I initially found that point to be a hindrance, it later proved an opportunity. Pushing me to revisit and digest the messages farther since it means picking up the Bible and searching out the references myself. You Are Made for More! is a temperate book but don’t let that fool you. Lisa’s story reminded me that not all preaching has to be in the form of a ‘main meal’. And that sometimes it’s nice to savour the flavours of the ‘starter’ before diving into dinner and pudding. Thus, I found its lightness worked well for me in accompaniment with heavy hitters. Whilst I found the majority good revision, I have to say the section on Fear was distinctly powerful. Perhaps that’s just the way the book spoke to me. I suppose, as with most faith books edification will vary from reader to reader dependant on previous scriptural knowledge and needs. However, for me what sprang to mind upon finishing was the story of the Hare and the Tortoise. You know - slowly slowly wins the race… Although the book may have started off with a slow burn it definitely left a kindle in my heart that I’m sure will go on to encourage fiery reflection as the days go by. (Sometimes it’s the quiet ones!) I’m looking forward to reading more of her work and aim to keep an eye open for her public ministries. If you want a light but edifying read this one is probably for you!
