Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Adams’s upbeat you can do it, too message finds a new home in this book written with children’s author Lavette. Using the Points of Power presented on her daily radio show and themes from her gospel songs, Adams advances her belief that God has a plan for each life that includes success and happiness. She develops 37 points, each packaged with scripture passages and thoughts for further consideration, with a collection of stories about people who have overcome various struggles. She is transparent about her own failures and triumphs as well. After losing her father at a young age, Adams went on to college and a brief stint at teaching before launching a lucrative gospel music career that has generated 17 albums and $40 million over 20 years. A single mother of one child, Adams also has been divorced twice, but with her characteristic glass-half-full outlook, she sees good in everything that has happened to her. Christians who subscribe to the prosperity gospel message, as well as her fans, will most appreciate Adams’s prescription for fulfillment. (Jan.)
