Learning to Embrace THE POWER OF I AM

Last year, I read Osteen's THE POWER OF I AM. I am a huge fan of his books as they are so inspirational and a call to action for the readers.  Now, the book is being released as a paperback.  

I think of myself as a beacon of positivity but there are times when I am so heavy burdened with thoughts of my responsibilities as a wife, mother, the bills I have to pay not to mention worries of affairs of dear family and friends. Yet, no matter what troubles await me, I am up to the challenge. I surround myself with positive thoughts and keep moving forward because I know I AM a conqueror.

At only 269 pages, THE POWER OF I AM is a quick read. Each chapter features inspirational power nuggets. You'll have to check out the book to fully understand my analogy.  In one chapter, Osteen writes "Go out each day with the attitude that something good is going to happen to you." How's that for an in your face dose of positivity? BAM!

In THE POWER OF I AM, Osteen strays from his typical "prosperity preaching" style and instead offers words of encouragement to inspire readers to uplift themselves.  Sometimes the action of speaking life over our troubles is the spark which ignites the flame of hope.  This is just a book. However, it's a message some of us need to hear.  

My favorite chapter was Chapter Six: I AM Valuable. What an awesome reminder of the power to overcome anything is in our DNA. Think of it. No matter what hardships life presents us with, there is someone in our family who has overcome and we can too. Greatness is… well, greatness is US. We are wonderfully and masterfully created and sometimes life throws us curve balls which leave us doubting how great we are.  What if we were to embrace the positives of life and stop embracing the negatives?  It's a process but there is no doubt to the power of positive thinking.  Osteen's not sharing anything new.  Researchers have studied the power of positive thinking for years.  Osteen is just doing it his way and I'm okay with that.  

All in all, THE POWER OF I AM is an easy to read book perfect for reflecting, uplifting and sharing with others.

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
