    Seasons of Silence – Joel Osteen

    I’ve watched this video from Joel Osteen a lot lately and it speaks to me every time because we all have seasons where it feels like God is silent. We don’t see Him working and sometimes we wonder if we’re doing something wrong, or if God is ignoring us, and we can get frustrated or discouraged. This video and message from Joel reminded me that these seasons of silence aren’t punishment and God definitely isn’t ignoring us – He’s testing us and preparing us for something far greater, an amazing future that He has planned for us. I hope you guys watch it and it helps you as it has…

    Book Review: The Power of I Am (Part 3)

    Sorry I didn’t post yesterday guys! It was a really stressful day, the kind where it feels like everything wants to go wrong. Then I got a really bad headache and had to lay down. But here it is, a day late! Please enjoy! Well, I promised on my list of awesome Christian books that I would read and review each one, so here I am with my second book review! This one is also by Joel Osteen (the first three are) and is called “The Power of I Am.” I’m going to break down what each chapter is about, but if this sounds like something you’re interested in reading,…

    Book Review: Think Better, Live Better

    So, I promised when I made my post 12 Books for Christian Living that I would read and review each one. I just finished Joel Osteen’s book, “Think Better, Live Better.” And here is my honest review. I loved it! It had just the right amount of truth and encouragement that I needed at this time of my life. Let me break this down into a short overview of each chapter. But I highly recommend that you read this book for yourself because you won’t get the truth and encouragement you need from this quick breakdown.

    12 Books for Christian Living

    The Bible is our greatest guide to life and tells us how God wants us to live, how we should treat one another, and what we should be doing with our lives. But sometimes, I find it hard to always understand what the Lord is trying to tell me.

I also know that I need constant (daily, sometimes hourly) encouragement to make it through stressful times. So, here are twelve books…
