Review by Charlotte Liebel
Life is full of pit-falls and relationships are one of the greatest of all. Whether conflicts are within the marriage between a man and woman, or there are growing-pains among the children in natural and blended marriages, the results are the same. Separations occur.
Excellent messages are received through the messages of Joel Osteen, the author and celebrated pastor of evangelism on television.
EVERY DAY A FRIDAY: How to Be Happier 7 Days a Week by Joel Osteen, a master story-teller, gives inspiration and hope to thousands. He inspires people to believe that God is ‘the way, the truth, and the life’ that will require nothing more than to believe that God has the power to lead each person in good directions. His book is available at Amazon.com and other booksellers in ebook and soft cover.

LIVING AS A HEALER
A well-dressed man stopped me on a busy sidewalk not long ago. From his appearance, you’d think he was on top of the world, but behind the facade, he was in much pain. He and his wife had separated. He was so discouraged.
“I don’t have a reason to live anymore,” he told me.
He sobbed and sobbed. My coat was wet with his tears. I didn’t have all the answers. I couldn’t solve all his problems right there on the sidewalk. But I could pour in some healing oil. I offered words of encouragement.
“God has you in the palm of His hand,” I said. Our meeting is not an accident. That’s God’s way of saying, ‘Everything will be all right.'”
That’s all some people need to hear. You don’t have to preach a sermon.
