    Great piece of morning inspiration

    I am so glad that I purchased "Your Best Life Begins Each Morning". With so much going on today we are constantly bombarded throughout the day with negativity. By just taking a few moments out of your morning routine to read the daily inspiration message you can position yourself to deflect the negative energy; and know deep down that your purpose is so much greater.

    Excellent read

    I loved the prayers in this book. I felt closer to Ood and like I've said a more meaningful prayer. I felt closer to God and more peaceful after reading the prayers. I highly recommend it as a good way to start the day off on a positive note.

    False teaching that contradicts God's teachings in the Bible.

    The bible needs to be read within context. Joes Osteen reads into the Bible what he desires.

    Good devotion

    Awesome book...I enjoy reading the devotions. Joel always has encouraging words and as a person who has just started daily devotions it has been a good jumpstart.

    Joel Osteen Your best life, a companion supportive daily minder

    Joel's daily stories are awe inspiring and start off our day in a postive pressing forward frame.
    We have been going through some tough times emotionally and financially and we seem to find comfort as well as some one in our corner after we read both the prayers and stories aloud.
    We highly recommend this wonderful daily minder. We know that someone is watching over us and feel more connected to each other and God.
    I feel thankful for finding this little book.

    Inspiring!!! Just love it!

    Take 5 minutes each morning to start with a positive mind. As Joel Osteen says " Today is the only day you have" It is the present not the past what is important in our life.

    This is a great book to have at home and office.

    This a great book to have. You can picture Joel and his smile with God's blessing coming at you for the 5 minutes a day it takes to read. Great book to have at the office so that you can get the inspiration in a hurry. I have enjoyed Joel Osteen's books so it is nice to have this quick devotion each and every day.

    Small Devotional

    Have you ever decided to begin daily devotions only to fall behind because you just cannot seem to find the time? Here's your guide! This tiny 4" x 6" palm-sized book contains devotions in a workable size. It will easily fit into a purse, a briefcase, or an office desk. The softly padded cover is a touch of luxury, and the book ribbon permanently attached will easily keep the reader's place.<BR/><BR/>An entire year is included in this 365-page volume. Each page is dated and begins with a Bible verse, followed by the author's thoughts. The entire devotion is confined in one page. For the person who wants to have daily devotions, but who does not have a big block of time to do them, this is ideal.

    Beware of WOLVES in sheep's clothing: For those who support Joe

    Beware of WOLVES in sheep's clothing:

    For those who support Joel Osteen and his message, I ask you to ponder these two verses;

    1 John 4:1 &quot; Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but TEST THE SPIRITS to see weather they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.&quot;
    2 Timothy 4:3 &quot;For a time is coming when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what there ITCHING EARS want to hear.&quot; ( Excerpts from the NIV)

    Remember, that there are many wolves among the sheep, and some stand at the pulpit, so please, be vigilant in testing the messages of those who teach and claim to teach the word of God, to the word of God, so as to not to be deceived and lose your way.

    An Inspirational (and Positive) Way to Start the Day

    Perfect for : Personal Use, Great gift<BR/><BR/>In a nutshell: This is a wonderful book for daily use, that helps to start the day on a positive/inspiring note with biblical inspiration. It is small, about 6 inches tall, 4 inches wide and about 1 inch thick - it will fit great in a purse, glove box, desk drawer, etc, just put it somewhere so you can read it every morning. There is an inspirational thought and bible verse for each day of the year, and each one takes only a minute or two to read, but will help you stay inspired all day! This would be a great gift for any religious friend or relative you want to provide encouragement to.<BR/><BR/>Extended Review:<BR/>Content: I've taken the time to read ahead in the book so I could do a better review. I love the different ways I am encouraged each morning, revisiting my hopes and dreams (Jan. 1), looking at where you want to be in the future (Jan. 26th), "Dare to be Happy" with who you are (April 17th), etc. I've provided a few themes that are supported by scripture and examples, along with a great thought for the day.<BR/><BR/>Format: The book is very easy to follow - there is a short introduction, then a page for each day that includes: the date, a title theme, a scripture supporting the theme, and a story or example that ends with a type of thoughtful reflection for the day. The book has a section for notes at the end, and a built-in ribbon bookmark to help you easily find the next day.<BR/><BR/>Readability: Wonderfully easy to read, with a consistent format.<BR/><BR/>Overall: A great way to start the day! And it only requires a few minutes to read (maybe less?), and you will gain insight into yourself and great thoughts to take you through the day.

    Joel Osteen is a hoax. Do yourself a favor, read the bible.

    1 John 2:15
    &quot;Do not love the world, neither the things that are in it, for whoever loves the world does not have the love of The Father in him.&quot;

    Great book to read everyday. Very uplifting. Creates positive energy to get you through your day. You will realized that you can make lemonade out of lemons and that you have to break eggs to make a great omelette. Life is not perfect or easy but God will get you through it. I read it every day.
