BOOK REVIEW--THE POWER TO CHANGE TODAY--Simple Secrets to the Satisfied Life by Gregory Dickow.

In his splendid book, The Power to Change Today, Gregory Dickow shares sixteen life-changing secrets in his warm, engaging style--captivating readers with down-to-earth storytelling, distinct reflection, and wit. These bold ideas will carry you away from a life of fear, pain, and limitations and bring you toward the unique purpose for which you were born.

The only pathway to true contentment, we learn, is from the inside out--not from the outside in. Yet, so often, we look for the one person or thing that can give us what we're missing in life.

We all want to be happy. And in our vision of happiness, we want to feel loved, secure, and fulfilled. We want to have gratifying relationships, good health, financial security, and, most of all, a reason to get up in the morning---the end result being the satisfied life that God has always intended for us. But many of us go through our days feeling dissatisfied. Sometimes we are so consumed with trying to figure out why we are dissatisfied that we are filled with worry, stress, frustration, or even despair. This book will help to end that dissatisfaction.

Pastor Gregory Dickow is the founder of the Chicago-based Life Changers International Church. He is the popular host of Changing Your Life, an international television ministry, as well as the highly rated Ask the Pastor radio program heard during the afternoon drive-time in a number of cities across the country.

As a retired minister of forty-seven years and now a book reviewer, I have read and continue to read many books. I have never read a book with more valuable illustrations. There is one or two on almost every page. I have tag alerts all through the book. The illustrations and storys are passionate, humorus, and uplifting. They pull you right into the center of the point being made. You may be laughing so hard you're crying or just crying because your heart has been touched. And you will be touched--and changed for the better.

Were you, by chance, referring to me in Paragraph #3? LOL?
