Book Review | I Declare By Joel Osteen


This happens to be my first book that I've read in years, and it was pretty awesome.

Typically I don't really care for religious figures that have mega churches because I feel as though they aren't genuine, and granted I've never actually heard a sermon from Joel Osteen or watched any sort of YouTube video with him preaching in it. But I did decide to read this book after many recommendations from my therapist. So I picked it up not knowing what to expect, and to my surprise, it was pretty awesome and more.

The book is formatted to have you read something every day for thirty days, so it's a different message every day. Now I'm not going to sit here and talk in depth about the book because that would defeat the purpose of you actually picking up the book at your local bookstore and reading it. I will say that some days I woke up not really feeling it or anyone and then I read the passage for that day, and the world made sense.

I'm not really big into church, like knowing all the bible verses and what not, but this book help me understand the bible and how I need to strengthen my bond with the Lord. There are actually a lot of cool things that I didn't know where in the bible and it all sounded pretty legit when I was reading the passages associated with each day's declaration. When I got to the end, the conclusion was just eye opening and informative.

I will admit there was a day where I wanted to fly off the handle and just act up, but then I looked and read the passage for the day and it took me all the way back down to mellow. Like I felt so anger and annoyance in my heart that when I read his good words, I kind of just shut all of that down. I stood up for myself by keeping it pushing like he said in his book.

All in all, I'll say that I really needed this book and I needed to hear everything from it, because it made me stop and think before overreacting at every single little thing. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who just wants to hear the good word every day and get some motivation in their lives. Those days where you just don't know, and don't want to be bothered when you wake up, will soon disappear when you read the chapter for the day, it's just that good.

This is my first book review ever, tell me what you think at the bottom in the notes and any book suggestions that you think I should read. I have tons and tons of eBooks so I'm not worried about running out of things to read lol.

Until next time guys.
