After outliving a developmental problem that doctors predicted would cause her early death, experiencing a painful divorce, and surviving a mail bomb, Lisa Osteen Comes is no stranger to obstacles and difficulty. Her message to others is: YOU WERE MADE FOR MORE!
Uniquely qualified to speak about overcoming challenges, ending negative behavior patterns, and restoring meaning to one's life, Lisa brings to her subject matter not only a strong background in Biblical teaching, but also a wealth of personal experience and insight. As a Bible teacher, Lisa writes with authority. As a human being, she writes with honesty and sensitivity.
"Whatever difficulties you face," Lisa Osteen Comes encourages readers, "I believe you are made for more."
Lisa shares from her own life stories of facing birth defects, limiting labels as a young woman, an unwanted divorce, criminal attack, infertility, and broken dreams. With every story, in every chapter, she delivers biblical truths and practical help for overcoming hardship and loss.
Her down-to-earth style, humor, spiritual wisdom, and optimism engage readers, who will remember and repeat Lisa's memorable principles for daily living:
· You can't grasp the future, if you're hanging onto the past.
· You weren't made for the pit, but for the palace.
· It's not over till God says it's over.
· God's at work in you, making a masterpiece.
· Let your scars become stars.
In a time when more readers face financial peril, uncertain work lives, and feelings of fragility in a fast-paced and overwhelming world, Lisa's message shows how to not only get through the day but, how to catch new vision for a bold and bright life.
Lisa Osteen Comes serves as an associate pastor of the Lakewood Church, the largest church in America, led by her brother Joel Osteen. Comes teaches on a rotating basis at Lakewood, and fills the pulpit when Joel is traveling. She is an Oral Roberts University graduate.
Its another member of the smiling Osteen family. Lisa Osteen Comes is Joels sister, and she is also on staff at Lakewood Church in Houston, pastored by her well-known brother, who contributes a foreword. Comess smile is hard-won, since she has paid her dues. She was almost killed by a mail bomb that was sent to the church in 1990; she was born with an apparent birth defect, which she overcame despite an early and gloomy prognosis; she went through a devastating divorce. Her faith has been tested, and she has thought through her experiences. They give depth to the affirmations that will sound familiar to Osteen followers (God made you unique; you, too, are anointed). Comes cites the Bible regularly for scriptural grounding, another anchor for her aphorisms for living. Some will invariably say this is overly simple; others simply want useful faith, and Comes provides faith help for those facing hardship. (Jan.) Copyright 2011 Reed Business Information.
