MY REVIEW: When I saw the name Robert Schuller, I thought back to when I was in my teens and we would watch cartoons on television. One of the things that came on after the kid stuff was the Hour of Power. I watched a few of these programs when I was a child. "I thought, ahhhhh I know who this is!" I also thought that if there was a time to read a book like this, it was now. Life can be so uncertain these days. We are all pretty much pushed far beyond our comfort zone. This is a book that I think will be a great help.

Robert Schuller invites the reader in with a style that is comfortable and welcoming. I appreciated his openness. The anecdotes he uses bring the lessons you learn to light. I have a renewed excitement for the goals and plans God has for my life, and a tool to keep my eyes on Him.
