The author gives a perfectly adequate reading of this relaxed and appealing material, which is helped by the masculine voice of an exceptional male narrator who reads chapter introductions and various quotations and affirmations. Osteen's teaching mirrors the approach of her televangelist husband, Joel, who integrates biblical principles with the language of personal development and recovery. With seamless writing and inspiring stories, she promotes practices like developing perspective, keeping a positive attitude, being proactive in relationships, rising above disappointments, and paying attention to health and fitness. An accessible growth audio for people of all faiths, this is a worthwhile reminder that finding value in yourself—and establishing habits that express this—is a necessary foundation to having a meaningful life that makes a difference in the world.
