I Declare is a wonderful book of 31 chapters that are set up to be read one chapter per day. Each chapter begins with a Declaration and then Joel gives about two and a half pages in which he gives a story/example of how that declaration can and has made a difference in people's lives. I have to admit, I read the book in two days but I'm now planning (once my husband finishes reading it) to read one chapter per day. I fully believe that if a person reads this book and starts making the positive declarations over their lives daily, their lives will change for the better.
My husband is a pastor who speaks often about watching the words that spew out of our mouths. Joyce Meyer also has written books on the words that come out of our mouths and how we need to be aware of what we say. Well, I have listened to my dear husband and Joyce Meyer and while I fully agree with them both, the concept has never caught hold of me and woke me up like Joel Osteen's book I Declare.
I thought about including the first chapter of I Declare but I know I wouldn't want to stop there. So what I will give you instead is this simple statement. "Buy this book!" I guarantee you that you will not be sorry. It is that good. I can't 'dog-ear' pages of a book (that makes me cringe), but I have sticky notes and flags throughout my copy of this book.
On a 5-Star Scale = 5 BIG Stars!
I would like to thank Sarah Reck with FaithWords, a division of Hatchette Book Group, Inc for my copy of I Declare. I received my copy for free in order to read and give my honest review, which I have done.
Smiles & Blessings,
