I have for many years listened to motivational talks by Pastor Joel Osteen. His warm and uplifting sermons fill me with hope. I love his message of being kind and helpful to others. It also helps when I have problems to hear his encouraging words.
When my brother died last year I was shocked. He was only 27 and I was so sad. I continued to listen to even more of Joel’s messages and kept a great attitude. I was able to be there for my family and continue to be a good father to my children. Even though I was in pain, I kept an attitude of gratitude.
Joel Osteen and his family were having an event at The BB and T Center here in South Florida. My wife and I obtained floor seats and had an outstanding night. We heard lovely music, great messages of hope and met many nice friends.
They offered the opportunity to sponsor a child who lives in a poor country with little food and water. We decided to help a boy from India. As a special gift, they let me meet Joel Osteen personally. There were 1,000 people waiting to meet him and I was first in line!
I told Joel I help others with mental illness and his work has helped me so much. He smiled, gave me a hug and shook my hand. It was an amazing experience and I feel blessed for a great night. Thank you Joel Osteen for the wonderful work you do!
