Every Day A Friday
How to be happier 7 days a week
By Joel Osteen
I was at a writer's conference, in my hotel room getting packed to go home. I'd been flipping TV channels. As I packed, a young evangelical preacher caught my attention. His sermons weren't the fire and brimstone I'd come to expect from previous television ministires. He was nice. He was positive. He made me feel good.
So from time to time, I'd watch his show. I bought one of his earlier books, but it wasn't as good as hearing him preach. Every Day a Friday was doing so well on the NYT Bestseller list, I decided to download a sample to my Nook. It was very good. I bought the eBook and read it while I walked on my treadmill in the mornings.
There were some stories reused from TV sermons and possibly the other book. But they were good, and worth repeating. He covered so many areas in our lives that if we only changed our points of view, things could be so much brighter. I was moved to tears a few times, but smiled much more. I feel good. Great job, Pastor Osteen.
I give this book five out of five stars.
